I guess you are talking about the mains? What I meant is stringing the crosses from bottom to top must be avoided, a mistake usually made by stringers doing one-piece. Always do the crosses from top to bottom, especially important for frames with a soft upper hoop like the classic Prestiges.
Saw the post on David Wheaton's Graphite Pro and would like to share something interesting although not quite a Prestige. I believe this is one of Wheaton's paintjobs. It is a Graphite Pro mold, the grandfather of Prestige with a Graphite Tour 600 paintjob. The snakeskin throat dampener of the...

Another one, I love the...
