    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    If not using a starting clamp, then a bulky knot is used.That prevents a smaller knot from being pulled into the grommet. I would invest in a starting clamp. Especially if you are stringing for others. The clamp is cheap enough, and many uses. If you had a Babolat Pure Storm and was asked to...

    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    You can do that. Many stringers do just that. I use to start crosses that way a number years ago, and it does work fine. less stress on anchor string as well. I start by weaving the 2nd cross, then weave the 1st cross (handle less string that way). Then I pull both top crosses together, and...

    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    Definitely not. You followed protocols . You offer that, they will think you really screwed things up, when there is no issue. Also, I see TW does not even offer those grommets, are you going to offer something you may not get? Although one place will most likely have them at about 3/4 the price...

    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    Does not matter at all. That is like that with a number of racquets. can be that way at the head of racquet, and other frames be that way at the throat. That is not any issue at all.

    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    The USRSA definitely lists 5H. Look, most likely both ways will work. Really doesn't matter a bunch. Since you were able to get the tie off in 5H , I would assume The Digest is correct, as normally one would have a difficult time to get a tie off in a grommet that was not correct if it was not...

    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    I just posted what I typically use. I guess if I had the racquet on my machine, and can see exactly what the racquet looks like, I would normally use the Digest pattern if it works. If it would not , then I would look for alternative solution.If the 5H would accept the tie off I would use it, if...

    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    I just posted what the USRSA Digest has listed for the Babolat C Drive 105. So if I post wrong, I will let you post for patterns whenever someone needs one in the future , as you know better than "The Digest" I trust the Digest as it helped me with many patterns in the past. Sometimes I had to...

    Can you only string this racket with a one piece method?

    The USRSA Digest has the top cross tied to 5H. Are you looking at the "C Drive105" @Irvin ?

    Is it normal to smash your toes on hard stops?

    That depends on the manufacturer as some shoes run a slight difference. My tennis shoes size is same as all my other shoes and no issues.
