    Not sure if this should be in this section or the "strings" section, but what is the stringing pattern for the yonex rdis 200 midplus? I'm looking for the knot locations in particular. Thanks in advance, and my apologies if this has been covered before.

    Irvin and all other stringers, if you're out there, I could really use your help. Thanks.

    I have 3 and it's real easy.

    Start at the bottom so your 2 mains get pulled from the top on the first pull.

    Skip 7 and 9.

    Tie offs are where the grommet holes are biggest.

    Thats really it. It is a super easy racquet to string once you do it once.

    You are asking the wrong guy. I seldom (if ever) use instructions. If all else fails read the instructions. I have a few simple 'rules' I follow to string.

    1 - String two piece although I am leaning back to one piece if I can avoid sharp turns.
    2 - Unless you have a fan pattern all main strings should be parallel. In order to do that most 16 main racket skip 7 & 9 or 8 top and/or bottom. 18 main rackets skip 8 & 10 or 9 top and/or bottom.
    3 - Mains never get closer together on outer strings.
    4 - Tie off at the larger grommet holes.
    5 - Check the frame for tension and pattern if in doubt.

    EVERYONE should start by looking at the racket before they take the strings out and really looking at the pattern to see if it is right and also how it is strung. After checking the racket check the grommets and make sure they are ok. They tell you a great deal about how to string the racket. Larger grommet holes are for tie off. When counting from the top center (or bottom center) out when you come to a grommet that is closer spaced than the last two you have a skipped grommet hole. There is a lot a grommet tells you like this one:
    [​IMG]
    I have a picture of half a head bumber with grommet hole 1 on the left.
    The racket this grommet fits skips 8 and 10. Because 8 is closer to 7 than 7 was to 6. You also skip 10 because 10 is closer to 9 than 9 was to 7.
    This is for an 18 main racket because the main holes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 11.
    Tie off hole is 6 because the hole is larger. And because there is only one tie off at the head the mains end at the throat. You don't tie off a main and a cross on one side any more in the same grommet hole.

    To answer you original question:

    Stringing Instruction for RDiS200
    Subject: RDiS200

    Information:
    16 Mains
    19 Crosses
    No Shared holes

    Main:
    Start @ Throat
    Skip 7T & 7H
    Skip 9H & 9T
    Tie off @ 8T & 8T

    Crosses:
    Start @ 7H
    Last @ 7T
    Tie off @ 5H & 9T

    Reference = http://www.yonexusa.com/displaycat.cfm?catid=7

    To find instructions I usually Google and look for the manufacturer's site. If there are any special instructions like stringing the crosses 5 pounds or 5% lower you would find them there too. Sometimes LOL I have heard Yonex recommends lowering the tension on the crosses but I think that is more a USRSA recommendation. You could always call Yonex I have never called a manufacturer yet that did not want to help. 800-44-YONEX

    Hi Irvin,
    I see where you are getting the 9 throat cross tie off. But something tells me that it's actually 6 throat. The Stringers Digest (last 2 issues) and USRSA website shows crosses tie at 5H and 6T. I don't string many Yonex but my failing memory seems to remember these tie offs. Strange.

    ^^I did not come up with those tie off locations that was copied from the Yonex web site. But they do make mistakes and so does the USRSA. That is why I depend on the grommets to identify the correct pattern.

    EDIT I said look for the larger grommet holes to identify the tie off locations. If there are more that one chose the closest one to minimize drawback.

    Hey guys, thanks for your help and input. I guess my confusion was caused from the way the racquet was strung when I got it. TW had the mains tied off at 6T and the crosses tied off at 5H and 8T. If the guys at TW had their knots at different locations than your recommendations, am I to assume that it really doesn't matter which grommet you use to tie off so long as it's bigger and closer to the last string?

    It is a good idea to tie a main on a main and a cross on a cross. The closer the tie off is to the clamp the less drawback you will have.

    Therefore 8T is a better tie off for the mains because it is closer to the clamp on the eighth main and you will have less drawback. 9T is a better tie off for the crosses because you are tying a cross on a cross. But I doubt you could tell the difference.

    Irvin, that is good information to know. I had no idea about that. Just goes to show you that what is common knowledge to one (or many) may be absolutely unchartered territory for another. Much thanks again, and I will use this info going forward, particularly on new racquets I've never strung before. You guys rock!!!

    Irvin, I agree that 9T woud be a better tie off grommet if that grommet is enlarged for tie off but I don't think it is. 9T would have to be manually enlarged with an awl before stringing. TW seems to have used the correct grommet tie offs but for some reason tied mains where crosses should be tied and the cross where mains should be tied. I don't understand why they did it that way but maybe they had a reason.

    Looking at the racket it appears 6T and 8T are tie off holes:
    [​IMG]
    I would tie the mains at 8T and the crosses at 6T. I told you even the USRSA and manufacturers make mistakes. That is unless the picture is wrong.

    5T would not make a good tie off for a soft string in the crosses because of the way the 5th main goes through the grommet. It also looks like you would have to open up 5T which is something I don't do.

    EDIT Sorry I meant 6T above and not 5T because of the way the 6th main goes throught the grommet.

    This racquet pattern starts at the bottom though. It's a 16x19 and your first pulls come through and out of the top of the frame. This is why I tie off the mains at the bottom.

    ^^Yes that would be the throat of the racket.

    EDIT: Are you thinking t and b or h and t?

    my mistake..i didnt think in those terms. yes, throat..but I tied the mains at 6..it makes more sense, you'd have to string it to see what I mean. The stringing instructions for this racquet are not exact.

    I was wondering how 5T got into the discussion lol!! Anyway it's encouraging that my memory is still working. As mentioned earlier it's been awhile since I've strung this racquet. But, I was sure my tie off locations were correct regardless of Yonex website instructions. Hope eveyone is having or had a nice 4th of July.
