    One Piece Stringing: Can it be done on a drop weight stringer? Ex- Gamma X-2 Stringer

    Hey there! I'm new to stringing my own racquets and have been loving the process. I've gotten two piece stringing down really well but I don't use a hybrid set up and I use Wilson racquets to which they recommend one piece. I was looking into videos on how to string one piece (most of the...

    Upgrade to Auto Clamps Loosening

    Hi All, I'd appreciate any help with this issue. I changed my clamp bases from the standard Spinfire to Spinfire Automatic base clamps. Every 3-4 racquets I need to tighten the base clamps as they begin to rotate back a little, likely resulting in tension loss. Is this normal procedure? Do...

    Anyone able to contact MI Stringer, getting no responses

    Hi, As per the title I am not getting any replies from MI Stringer, the contact form says they will respond within 1 business day but nothing. The stringer looks perfect in the £300 range, assuming the company has gone under can anyone recommend a stringer for personal use for around £300? Thanks

    Babolat Junior 26 (Blue) stringing for comfy play

    Hi, Anybody can recommend good string setup for this racquet, my 11 yo player complained about some arm/wrist pain after playing with it. I didn't see any recommended tension posted, it was restrung from factory with Hyper G @50 which I assume in the middle of recommended range. I heard that...

    Stringing 2 piece instead of 1 piece because of reel end?

    I'm not a professional stringer - just string for family and friends. I normally get 1 racket at a time and string 1-piece or 2-piece based on the specific racquet's recommendation if available. Just the other evening, I had 2 racquets from the same player to restring. The specific racquet was...

    Hybrid String Suggestion for More Durability (Six One 95s)

    I play with a Wilson Six One 95s. I recently moved away from a full bed of Hyper G Poly (17 gauge) to Lux Alu Power in the mains @ 54# and Wilson NXT Syn Gut @ 56# in the crosses. I love the feel on volleys and touch shots and am also able to take full cuts at the ball and have consistent...

    RF97 10.0(2014) Customization Reccomendations

    Hi! So I have the RF97(the red and black one) that came out in 2014. I used to use the 11.0 RF with an overgrip, balanced at about 362g. with lead tape under the grip too. After trying something else, I'm looking for a similar playstyle with a lighter weight. I tried the Wilson Ultra 2.0 Tour...

    Alpha Axis Pro or Tourna 300cs

    Don't know which one to go with. Seems I can't go wrong with either, but just to be sure. I would prefer the one with the best clamps, however if one is much better than the other I would obviously go with that one.

    Bonny T-618 Stringing Nightmare

    I saw a couple threads on Bonny tennis racquets, and how many of their racquets pushed the envelope on weird designs and experimental concepts. Well, a customer visiting from Taiwan brought a Bonny racquet to be restrung: the Bonny T-618 (purple and green-ish). I looked in the 2020 stringers...

    Stringing Pure Aero French Open

    I was stringing this for someone but it seems to be different from a regular Pure Aero. I couldn't find the right grommets to tie off crosses unless this is only meant for one piece stringing? Do I still skip 7 and 9 on mains?

    Syn gut strings slipping out of clamps

    Hi all. I have a Klippermate. I have tried to string a racquet with two different syn gut strings now and they both slipped out of my clamps during stringing. I have been able to string syn gut fine before. Do I need new clamps? I can string poly fine.

    Yonex Duel G 310 stringing pattern?

    I brought my Yonex Duel G 310 to the stringer yesterday and picked it up today. The guy told me that his colleague who was stringing it got confused by the pattern at the top of the frame. The guy tried to figure it out with her but he also wasn't sure. They ended up with this: It's a 16x20. I...

    [Request] Can anyone post a video of stringing synthetic gut/multifilament with a drop weight and floating clamps?

    I have a the basic 2 point mount Gamma X-2 drop weight stringer and stringing synthetic gut/multifilaments have been unpredictable for me and that's because the string stretches and so the drop weight keeps dropping after leveling the drop weight. In the end it's caused me to sometimes have a...

    Stringing example #2: Head Speed Pro Graphene Youtek 18*20

    Another example for a racquet I just had on my machine. I think it is a great way to use a 1-piece stringing pattern for this racquet. Because of the shared grommets, not all ATW patterns will work. In this case, I used the "ATW short side" pattern. My solution for ATW: Summary: SS M8 clamp...

    TiS6 coating coming off from outer clamps?

    Hey everybody, I’ve been stringing a few TiS6s lately and noticed a reoccurring issue where some of the soft coating will come off where the mounts are (at 2,5,7, and 10) after I’m done stringing them. Just wanted to know if you guys have been experiencing the same since it seems to scratch so...

    Ektelon H - Glide Bars

    I just recently found a steal of a deal on an Ektelon H machine, although I didn't get any full glide bars with it, only the short/half glide bars. Am I SOL? The previous owner claims his son strung rackets using only the short glide bars, but I can't figure out how that's possible/find any...

    What’s wrong with the string job!!?

    Hi, I’ve been with arm problems due to a bad string job that I can’t figure why. My stringer strings like 200/300 Rackets a mounth, for national athletes mainly, but in the past few months I feel that it makes a lot of pressure in my arm, the strings feel dead and like a thick rock wall.

    Stringing and head deformation

    What I noticed lately from my often stringing jobs is that mains and crosses pull the head sides and deformation occurs depending on the tension you put on each type of strings, mains and crosses. The head can get elongated into a slight oval shape if the tension in the crosses is higher or it...

    Wilson Blade v7 18x20 cross stringing question

    I'm pretty sure I did this wrong... I'm so used to Yonex 2-pieces which end up so clean. I bought a new 18x20 v7 Blade and as per their site, it mentions to tie the x-string at 6T, 12B. Problem being the mains have already travelled back to tie off at 7B which leaves a bundle of strings like in...

    Hi, recently I have restrung my racquet with the Volkl Cyclone Tour. It is the first time I try this string and I always heard people complaining about its tension maintenance. I am wondering whether the tension loss could be fixed by the pre-stretching process for this string. Here is...

    Strings and Different Levels of Players

    Starting a stringing business. Some of the people I will be stringing for know what kind of string they want, others don’t. I would assume majority of people just use synthetic guy up to the 4.0 level. Thought on good types of synthetic gut or any other thought on strings altogether. Also, at...

    Hello everyone. I am pretty new to tennis and am not stringing my own racquets yet (but hope to in the future). After having a handful of racquets restrung, I have noticed that different professional stringers are stringing my same racquets differently, with respect to tie off locations and...
