I have even a wood racket where I skipped a cross and it is fine thank you, no warping.
no worries it's a Hammer 2.7 I got for $5 at a garage sale so not a biggie. I'm planning using poly 17 ga at 30-35 lbs. So it shouldn't stress the hoop a ton.
Probably 16 x 15 and I'll be judicious with the strings I skip, so it looks like it will be as even in stress as possible
