I took on the challenge of stringing my frankengrommet Edge yesterday. First and foremost, I got an old grommet piece stuck in the racket and fiddled with it for a couple hours while watching TV Saturday afternoon trying to get it out...no such luck. So, I am stuck with a rattling sound that is going to drive me nuts. Second..I wil NEVER ever attempt stringing this racquet again! Those shared holes are a major PITA! And, the site that says 17 mains and 21 crosses can kiss my.... sorry, let's just say, it didn't work out as I had hoped. I fought that racquet for three and a half hours yesterday. By the time I had undone the strings for the third time I was so frustrated I was ready to scream. On my last attempt, I totally gave up when I got to the second to last cross. There was no way in hell I was able to get two strings through the shared hole, so I skipped it, put in the last cross above it and tied it off. I shredded three of my four "extra" grommets from the strip I cut up, and realized I HATE the bumper guard that is on there. I should have trimmed it thin like the strips. Granted I'm still a bit mad at my attempt yesterday and will probably attempt this again one of these days...it certainly won't be any time soon. I may pay someone that knows what they are doing to teach me the right way to string these things. I just can't see myself going through that again.
