Problem stringing w volkyl cyclone
 
I'm having a hard time getting my knots to hold with volkyl cyclone 16 ga. I just started string a couple months ago and this is the worst string I've seen for thing to tie off. Seems slippery and won't hold a knot. Any tricks I need to know?

What's kind of knot you use? Did you try to tie with starting clamp?

Look at the knot videos.

I have never had a problem with Cyclone knotting badly.

No. I don't know what a starting clamp is. The problem seems to be the knots slipping. I use 2 square knots at all tie offs. I need to learn a diff knot maybe?

I use the Wilson Pro Knot that Irvin describes in a video.
Strung a racket today with Cyclone and it works great.

+1 on the Wilson Pro. One of the better knots available.

This is correct video link of Wilson Pro Knot and you can see the stringer using starting clamp for knotting.

BTW, I use PC Knot instead.

Thank you. The videos are most helpful. I need to get a starting clamp for sure.
