Do you know anyone with a faster weave than me? (51 sec. video)

I want to set the world record for fastest weaves, but I need a second opinion to avoid wasting time.

Looks like a trick, to be honest. After I weave the first couple of crosses (10 – 15 mins tops) I usually go to the kitchen cabinet looking for hand cream. Even if I find the cabinet, the cream is usually missing. So then I take a bath and dress for a trip to the pharmacy. Usually takes a few days or weeks for me to complete the crosses.

I am impressed. More so with hitting the inside grommet hole so easily. My poor vision won't allow that.

Where's your store? Looks like a good setup.

You should go to the IART symposium in September and enter the speed stringing contest. You can compare yourself to the fastest at that event and possibly pick up some fun pointers while there.

I can't hit my O-ports that easily :) . Interesting to see the weave start from bottom and move to grommet; never tried that. Typically I start from grommet and weave to bottom.

That's impressive.

Have you seen Irvin's bead method? It'd probably save you dozens of trips to the pharmacy.

Good eye! I'm working at the newest store in Houston and it's a quaint little place I really enjoy working at. We even manufacture our own strings! (Clarke)

I've been dying to find the opportunity to head over there!
I'm more interested in the many types of stringing methods and quirks I'd see.

I utilize both ways! The goal is to get the most severe angle you can so you'd have more space to weave.

I apologize for the inconvenience, really! We're on the cusp of finishing our new websites this month. I've been putting in the hours, I promise.

Maybe you're a fortune teller?
We're playing around with locations.

are you stringing it with a synthetic string? that allows me to stringing like a lot faster than i would do with a poly.

I'm stringing with a multifiliment. Definitely a lot easier than polyester. My weaves are usually a second slower (unless it's Lux Ace or another thin polyester)

Wow, here is a pro at work!

you are making your own strings????how

TheStranger 06-06-2014 03:16 PM

Ah, a Radical Rev just like mine. Haha, that's pretty quick~

gkamieneski 06-06-2014 03:17 PM

I was just looking at a reel of neon green trimmer poly from Walmart out in the garage.

am1899 06-06-2014 03:17 PM

Wow...that's movin'!

Do you / have you considered stringing at pro events? By the looks of your technique, it appears you know what you're doing. And while not the end all be all, your speed would be an asset at that level of stringing.

An oxymoron if ever I heard one. :)
