Getting the floppy end of a Kevlar string through the tie off/shared hole.
Can any of you experts help me out with this nightmare? When stringing with Kevlar, it's basically like stringing with twine. When it comes time to push the ******* through the tie off hole, it took me almost 15 minutes the last time I strung my racket. I tried everything..cut the the end of the string as sharp as I could, I waxed it, I wet it, I damn near broke the awl trying to shove it through.
Is there some trick to getting floppy strings through shared holes? Your help is much appreciated.
