    Avoiding Crossovers on shared hole raquets

    This was strung 1p ATW. But the same exact thing happened in the same spot on the one I strung 2p before this one.

    Avoiding Crossovers on shared hole raquets

    Thanks @am1899 & @esgee48. That was easier than I expected. I thought Irvin might weigh in with something unexpected. It's still early! (No insult intended).

    Avoiding Crossovers on shared hole raquets

    Are there any tips or tricks for avoiding crossovers on the outside of frames where there are shared holes between mains and crosses? As an example, here is a photo of a Head Speed Pro (18x20) that has shared holes. I try to align the string into the bottom channels of the shared pairs, but I...

    Does this string job look correct?

    That knot at the head (an ugly starting knot) with the tail running parallel to the main string is horrific!

    What is/was your Most Favorite String Ever?

    Babolat Defiance 16g white. It was a really inexpensive and slick synthetic gut and I loved it. Wish I could find something comparable to it today!

    Wilson Baiardo first thoughts

    I think you could probably get it far South of that price... probably $2400-$2500.

    100% for me except 50% for polys.

    Just for the heck of it, I clicked on the links in the original post. None of them are working. FYI.

    Lendl- Clear

    Note the central mains and crosses appear to be grommetless.

    Wilson Baiardo first thoughts

    Darn it! I’d have made you an offer on that Ghost a couple years ago... if I hadn’t bought a Baiardo!!!!

    Help me find my next reel of poly

    I agree with an earlier sentiment. Those strokes don’t warrant poly. You want a stiff string bed in that 18x20? Try a 16g synthetic gut at 65 pounds. Or a hybrid with with 16g syngut mains and 17g poly in the crosses.

    More talented: Sampras or Mcenroe?

    Sampras was the better athlete, but McEnroe had better hands and talent. I also think McEnroe had the better tennis I.Q., but Sampras was able to compensate due to his size and athletic ability. Serve: Sampras Return: McEnroe due to his success in doubles Volley: McEnroe Overhead: Sampras...

    synthetic gut=total package

    So does stencil ink, but it’s not illegal at any level of the game.

    Natural Gut Breaking at Parnell Knot

    The racquet was a Technifibre TFight 295. I strung the natural gut as a 2-piece, to reduce wear during the install. The grommets appear to be in good shape, with no rough edges, my Baiardo clamps were cleaned just prior to installing the natural gut strings.

    Natural Gut Breaking at Parnell Knot

    I recently had a customer who broke a main of freshly strung bed of VS Touch 16g broke at a Parnell knot tie-off. I've uploaded some pictures. I don't string a lot of natural gut--probably less than 10% of what I do. I was careful not to tighten the knots as much as I do with synthetic gut...

    Do all crosses cut into the mains?

    I hardly think so.

    New Stringer Coming/ What Reel to Buy

    Those knots look perfect, and the tails are the right length, too. Well done!

    Customer gaffes

    Do you string a full bed of natural gut as 1 piece? Seems like a lot of opportunity to unnecessarily damage the string pulling the majority of the string through half the mains and then the crosses.

    String tension versus power potential of string

    Knot help!

    Without a closeup view, it's difficult to be certain; however, it appears that tie-off grommet 6B on the left side is split or torn and has sharp edges. I wouldn't be surprised if this cut through the body of the knot and caused breakage. The remaining knots all appear to have the proper...

    Knot help!

    From what I see, it looks like a good Parnell knot. I'd be surprised if you have trouble with this one. Do you have a photo of the one that broke or came untied?

    Knot help!

    I've been using the Parnell knot for years and have never had one come untied. Consider posting a photo of one of your Parnell knots, both before and after the untie event, so we can see if it's a proper Parnell.
