    Strung racket, wrong grommet hole..

    1. Why are you a muppet for stringing it 2 piece? It would seem that you have limited stringing experience, and therefore I'd recommend; and I teach people to learn to string 2 piece only. 2. If, as @Irvin has said, if the crosses are not sitting in the groove then you'd need to start them...

    Spin potential

    String X's lower than the M's, so that it will allow the M's to move more and help generate the spin

    Why would Dominic Thiem switch from the pure strike 1st gen to 3rd gen, skipped widely loved 2nd gen?

    Unless his new frame is now 27.25", the previous one was a standard 27"

    A confused and lost noob stringer aka OP

    The protocol I encourage is to tie the poly to the poly on a gut/poly hybrid. The other way around doesn't matter. So I dont have a mains to mains; crosses to crosses standard. However, If I come across a rqt thats been strung by P1, I follow their decision even if its a pol/gut hybrid as shown...
