    Broken load spreader

    I think the frame didn't have enough curve to it and that is what snapped it.

    Broken load spreader

    I bought a load spreader to use with my 6 point machine. While stringing I heard a very loud snap. Thankfully it was the load spreader and I removed the strings and inspected the racquet. It was fine but the load spreader is toast. At this point I don't think I will buy it again. I would rather...

    RPM Blast shearing

    Thank you @Irvin. I cut the strings out last night and carefully pulled each string out from the grommets. They all looked normal. I am not using RPM in this racquet again. I may try @jim e 's suggestion. Thank you

    RPM Blast shearing

    Thanks everyone. Since the client ordered new grommets I am going to install those first. I'm also going to switch brands of poly on this next re string.

    The lettering on the strings are straight every place that they are printed. On 3-4 left there is printing that runs around the back side of the grommet and it runs straight as well. That's not saying that the string that broke wasn't twisted

    He was using luxilon. I have strung tons of poly and have never had a twisting issue. I will put in the new grommets and re string being ridiculously careful to keep it as straight as possible.

    RPM Blast shearing

    Thanks for the tips. I restrung the racquet both mains and crosses. This time I did the crosses in synthetic. An hour into play and 3-4 on the right side snapped. It looks the same very clean break possibly inside the grommets. The spots on the strings are reflection from the flash.

    That's is a reflection. The string on both sides of the break are smooth. It could have been a twist.....this is a first for me. I've never had a string job come back with a problem.

    RPM Blast shearing

    I strung a Prince pro tour 100 two nights ago with a full bed of RPM Blast 17ga from a reel that I have used several sets off of. The grommets are in great shape. 30 minutes into play my customer broke the strings at the 8th-9th cross from the top on the right side. The string looks like a shank...

    V method pulley

    I assume it's the weaving technique. Here is the quote from 10-28-2011 sorry to read you misunderstood what I wrote. As Irvin pointed out, this was not my message. In fact, I would go out and say many stringers on this board such as Irvin, JimE, SteveHuff, etc are more knowledgable and possibly...

    V method pulley

    @drakulie I was reading an old thread from 2011 that you mentioned Wilson endorsing the V method and you commented that you learned that method in the mid 80's but it was called a pulley method. Can you tell me what that is?

    Wise Pull Speed Setting ...

    I wouldn't be happy with the latex answer. I would want the gripper looked at. Don't *uck with the Jesus

    Wise Pull Speed Setting ...

    What did Dan Martenez at Wise say about this? If you haven't called him you should. I have no marking at all and all I use is one wrap on the diabolo.

    Wise 2086 distance to racket?

    I keep my wise back far enough to clear the turntable plus about an inch so when wrapping the diabolo I have room.
