Prince Squash racquet

Has anyone strung up one of the Prince squash racquets with the 'Power Ring' that all the main strings loop around? I just ordered the racquet, and was wondering if there might by any techniques for managing this different stringing system.

If you are going around a power loop remember to wind the opposite on the two sides of the racket. Make sure the bottom cross goes over the high strings and under the low strings.

EDIT: The last think you want to do is get down to the bottom cross and find that cross goes over half the high main and under the other half or have it going through all the mains without touching any of them. That would fit well into my You know something is wrong when ... thread.

Strung plenty of these, here are some tips.

When stringing the mains you double pull them, and so only pull tension from the head.

Don't mirror the left side mains with the right side. If the 1st left main (1LM) goes below the ring, the 1RM will go above it.

Some rqts have the double barrel grommets. You need to make sure you use the right holes when stringing the mains otherwise you'll end up with the wrong weave. In short, if you put the main in the top hole, the cross will go in the bottom hole and its 1st weave will be over the 1st main it comes too. Usually you'll string 1 side of the rqt with strings in the upper hole, while the opposite side the mains will be the lower hole. But you also need to make sure that the way you loop the mains around the power ring is right too otherwise you'll end up with the problem that Irvin has stated.

If unsure the best thing to do is string the 1st 4 mains on either side and then 'test' the crosses with a scrap piece of string.

Hope this helps and that I haven't made it sound too complicated.

Thanks Paul.

That sounds pretty straightforward. I was reading the instructions on the Prince website as well, so I think I know what to do once the racquet arrives (Speedport Black). It has the O ports, so I think it should be fairly straightforward.
