    How would you tension this racquetball racquet

    Lionel: Head IGS string pattern is a pain of neck to string against. I used to have a Head Liquid Metal 190 racquet as my backup one. I strung it once and hate it so I sold it in cheap price. Your questions are tough to answer and almost impossible to achieve if your customer wants a...

    String pattern of Wilson Blade Comp?

    Ok, I restrung it with Dire Desire ATW My total string is 37.5ft and the short side is 9.5ft. It had plenty of string left. It should be enough with 35ft total along with SS 9.5ft. The racquet is a little bit weird to skip 7/9T and 8B. Thanks...

    Lendl's eight knot hybrid string job

    Here is my modified version of Lendl's Hybrid Pattern for my Babolat Pure Storm Tour: It should work for other racquets starting mains from top as well. It is a 3 pieces hybrid. The center string in green is 27ft with 6 mains on each side to avoid bottom up crosses. It has 8ft short side...

    Econogut 101: How and What?

    It is much better not to string econogut with full stringbed. Otherwise, its cross strings might be damaged due to high friction. I had no problem to string hybrid with Mamba guts and ItS, but full stringbed of Mamba supra gut was snapped due to damage of cross strings caused by high friction...

    I have Gamma 6900 ELS String Machine with 2 Point SC Mount. The 2 point mounting system is very hard to install main strings of racquetball racquets. However, it is pretty easy to string most tennis racquets with some exceptions such as Volkl Power Bridge 5 which is impossible to be mounted...

    He mentioned that he did SSHS for his Wilson Hyper DLX racquetball racquet which is a 14M19C pattern. I don't see an easy way to do his SSHS without exceeding 20ft for each piece.

    Hybrid with ATW stringing?

    I laughed when someone posted something about hybrid and ATW stringing. But it looks like someone did it long time ago. He called his stringing method SSHS (Sweet Spot Hybrid Stringing) which uses ATW technique. I wonder how that could be done. Unfortunately, he seems retired from...
