I've worked on two NEOSes with short bars, maybe it's an add-on purchase? No one seemed to know they existed, though... I found them in a box in storage..

If you have an even number of crosses string from the top down and the outside main last. If you have an odd number of crosses string from the second cross down up for the outside main and lastly the top cross.

EDIT: That is if you want to do ATW which creates as many if not more problems as bottom up. The worst of which is utter confusion.
Yep. This is the reason I avoid ATW, it's generally not necessary, and it's not a standard pattern, so you don't save on warranty issues anyways. I believe I actually read from Irvin (?) that even Head is actually honoring warranties these days strung bottom up.
