when stringing with a 2 point system, be careful as not to tighten the screws too much. This is especially true with Babolat racquets like the PD and Aero. At 6 o'clock, it is tapered, so too much pressure will crack the joints at 5 and 7 o'clock. What I did was I got a heavy steel bar that span across the frame at 6 o'clock. I drilled a hole in the middle of the steel bar so that it can be inserted into the screw. With the steel bar, it puts pressure across the frame and not just at the 6 o'clock position. of course you will have to put some cushioning on the steel bar as not to scratch the frame.
