Don't be confused by "Tighten all 20 cross strings in direction of the racquet throat." It must be a poor translation of an original document. It does not mean that you need to pull tension on the strings in the direction of throat of the racquet. There are 2 basic ways to install cross strings in a racquet - top down or bottom up. Top down means you start the first cross string at the head/top of the racquet and you finish the last cross at the throat/bottom of the racquet. Bottom up means you start the first cross at the throat/bottom of the racquet and you finish the last cross at the head/top of the racquet. Head requires top down for the Prestige. Cross #1 should be at the top of the racquet and cross #20 should be at the throat.
