    What kind of knot do you use when stretching a string?

    Simple answer. Quit playing with ZX, it's a silly string. The method works supremely for NG. I don't bother hand pre-stretching any other string. Again, let your fancy ass machine handle it.

    Can dumb people learn stringing?

    you did. Please keep giving advice. It is much "appreciated" here on the boards.

    No knot for pre-stretching. Otherwise, let that fancy-ass machine you've got do a pre-stretch. WTF are you going on about now? Knots for stretching? I'm lost.

    At worst, you'd only need to return the tension head versus the entire machine.

    Frugal drop weight'ers: Electronic machine is a REVELATION.

    I think the easiest solution is for everyone to use the ignore button.

    Stringing one cross ahead, benefits and the proper way to do it.

    Never had any notching issues as you speak of (if i'm understanding correctly). Never heard it mentioned before either (i don't think). Even if it did, after tensioning those notched would move......AND after that they will notch abit nonetheless, once tensioned. I've never really known...

    I have four locking wheels. I think they were sold individually (been awhile)

    Gamma Casters for X-ST/ Progression II ST, standard floorstand

    FWIW, the casters Gamma sells are quite nice. With a brake, they roll really smooth etc. Yes, they are spendy but I knew they'd fit and work well. They do. I initially was on the same $$ saving path but it seemed like a PITA as I wanted brakes too. YMMV.

    Has anyone ever heard...

    How many "other" events does he actually play? Yeah, I'm sure many of the guys do actually use the onsite service. Heck, most of them could do fine with me stringing their rackets.

    Just guessing.....Many folks you see on TV accepting awards likely hire their own stringers, so they are thanking them with a huge check. Not all, but many. Amiright?
