Tying off Main - broke string with just one knot. ?
 
Tying off main, broke string with just one knot. Luxilon 125.

Any guesses as to the probability that it will hold?

I used to tie my poly off with a single knot ... I bet it will hold

It will hold. For peace of mind, dab a little nail polish on it. Or if using super glue, don't put any on the grommet or you will rue this when restringing. :twisted:

If it is your racket try it and see. Depending on where it broke you make be ok. If it is a customer's racket (and you want repeat business) I would replace it.

I agree with your approach. It's my racket.

I pulled on the string with pliers using the frame to pry. It nicked the string too close to the 1st knot. It broke making the second knot.
