    Proposal for an experiemnt.Point of a string pattern? and do i need all the strings?

    So I wanted to skip some holes while stringing to create a more open stringbed, but the more i thought about it the more questions arose. let's start with the old argument for open vs closed string patterns. - usually the argument is that open pattern produces more spin and closed pattern...

    not sure if has been brought up before, but i have a Wilson Impact racquet with Power Bridge Technology lol.
