Steve, I believe the N5 ties off on the sixth main, a much easier way to insert the string than if it tied off on the 7th (16 main pattern, IIRC). It sounds like the OP has a racquet that ties off on the next-to-last main, a real nuisance with Ashaway Kevlar (just did a 6.1 today, and I sympathize).
The best way I've found to solve this problem is to prepare the hole ahead of time by using a waxed awl to open it up before stringing. You can even leave it in there until it's time to install the main.
