Eforce actually has a patent on their "bypass stringing":

It is designed that none of the 8 center main strings are adjacent to another string linked thru the head of the frame:

Hitting at the end of the frame doesn't allow the string room to deflect/stretch like it does in the middle of the sweet spot. The bypass pattern allows some of the stress to be passed to strings that are not in contact with the ball . A standard pattern places all this stress is in very small section of string - leading to shearing at the frame. Please excuse my crude attempts at illustrating this:
