Best YouTube How To String Video?
 
Can anyone recommend a good how to string video on YouTube? I haven't strung racquets since I played in college over 15 years ago and I've totally forgotten how to do it.

I checked out the sticky in this section, but didn't find a basic how to video. Checked YuLittle's channel, but didn't know what to look for.

I have an Alpha Revo 4000 if it helps. Thanks so much for your help!

No one video will do it for you to know everything about stringing.

Yulittle made a number of videos, they are not in any particular order, but watch them all and it should make sense to you.
Once you view them all, if you have any specific questions post here and someone should be able to answer, or check the search feature as just about every type question has been answered at some point in time. Good luck!

Below is link to a number of videos, and should be enough to get you started, but as I sad they are not in any order. Watch them all as they are not all that long.

Those are excellent, and our own frequent poster Irvin has a bunch of really good ones also. He's Mr10sStringer on YouTube.

I don't put too much faith in Mr10sStringer, he makes some good points but demonstrates some bad techniques. Just don't take his word for Stringer's Gospel.

Stick to the fundimentals, because they never change. Mike (YULitle) and former MRT, has the best videos, too bad he retired. I recommend them to anyone who wants to learn how to string. Also a copy of USRSA Raquect Service Techniques. You can get a PDF version from the USRSA if you inquire about becoming a CRT/MRT, but you don't have to take the test.

Thanks so much for everyone's help. Using those videos, I strung a couple racquets tonight. Turns out, stringing is kinda like riding a bike - you never really forget!

Thanks again!

Best, and most credible, contributor ever on the subject of stringing. By a very wide margin.

Yulitle's video are very good and helped me immensely when just starting out.

The best string video is where proportional stringing the mains of the racquet is used,,Proportional stringing is the ultimate in stringing the mains all other methods are amateur-putting speed over quality work. When every string has the same tone or pitch they are all equal in tension,,case where art of stringing is superior to technology stringing. You use your ears not your eyes in this method.

Your all welcome, send your donations to the the North Pole care of Santa Claus.

Your comment is not that accurate.
When they are the same pitch, they are not equal in tension as you say.
The shorter strings will be higher pitch if same tension, or shorter strings will have less tension if equal tone or pitch compared to longer strings.
I strung one time proportional for myself, and was not impressed. Also no pro players I know of has this done. Waste of time as far as I am concerned

NEVER! EVER! will you ever get the same tone on all strings of a tennis racket. When a racket is strung the string bed (no matter how it was strung) will have produce one tone.

EDIT: If properly done (and your racket does not deform while stringing) a proportional string job will produce the same tome on each string, assuming that string does not touch any other string.

EDIT: I would like to apologize now but I think DT is much more important that any other "method."

Recently Alpha has been including with their newly pruchased machines a DVD where Yulitle goes through the whole stringing process. If you feel like you need it still, you may want to contact them and see if they'll send you a copy to go along with your Revo 4000.

Maybe you would be so kind as you point out the bad techniques so I can address it. Or are you just parroting someone else?

If the fundamentals never change why does the content in the USRSA Stringer's Digest change (excluding the obvious changes in the new patterns?)

There's the post in question with proper attribution, I hope. I'm sticking with finding Irvin's videos very helpful. It's also nice that he's currently active.

And wasn't it once fundamentally agreed that the world was flat?

Lakers4Life 12-01-2012 12:21 PM

Irvin tries. Tries a bit too hard sometimes, most of us can agree on that.
