I just use the 50/50 method to start the crosses. Seems easier than using other tools.

because of the design of some stringing machines although I really like the two piece 50/50 method I don't think it is easier. When using the 50/50 you should string two crosses toward the top then switch to two toward the bottom then two on top then two on the bottom until you are done. Never get ahead on the bottom and not more than two ahead on the top. That is what I have been told is the correct way by Prince.

Good info, thanks.

That should have said, Never (not ever) get ahead more than two on top ...

Yup, great customer service, but does anyone know which boomerang is for the exo rebel 98?

Andyroo10567 12-29-2012 10:19 PM

I tried calling 4 times this week and they never called back or answered my calls.

I strung a Rebel 95 and used the white boomerang for the O3 White.

There were four boomerangs at one time. A light grey and orange, and a darker grey and red. The darker grey and red had ears and Prince told me they were for the EXO3 rackets. Te other two were for the O3 models. I would suggest using any one that fits some people even shave them down to fit. Wear safety glasses they have a tendency to pop out at times.

I got my boomerangs in a like time frame. Great customer service.

KoaUka 12-31-2012 12:20 PM

ok, just played around with them a little..
both grey ones are too big, the rounded orange one fits and so does the red one with ears. Guess it'll be the red one for the rebel, but i'll try both and see which one is better.

Good idea on the safety glasses. One just shot off my o3 Black and I am amazed it did not break my glass door. Really scared the hell out of me!

That's one of the reasons I didn't care for the boomerang. It works when it's on, but you can't predict when it's going to fly off.

struggle 01-03-2013 09:49 AM

I kind of hold them in place, as even if they don't fly out they can shift around and the strings can come out of the slots.

Took Copey advise and went to the local hardware store and bought a couple of s hooks and they worked perfectly! I was apprehensive at first and fully expecting them to shoot out and nab one of me nuggs but surprise surprise it works perfect! I kept thinking why didn't Prince come up with this?!

ricki 01-03-2013 01:55 PM

can anyone help me get the boomerangs for Reibel/Ignite (i.e. small exo ports). I am from Czechia and unfortunately our official Prince dealership doesnt even want to hear about needs of customers!
