    I have questions about the 1 piece Around the World string pattern I been using.
    Here it is -
    Head Prestige Classic 600 Mid (93)
    1 piece, Around The World, 33 Feet (9.2 short side) - 52 pounds

    Short side –
    second to last main (going up)
    then weave the top cross (start under main)
    Pull and hold with starting a clamp (since long side clamp is in use for long side mains)

    Around the world part
    Long side –
    down last main (pull & clamp)
    weave bottom cross (start under main) (pull & clamp)
    up last main (pull & clamp)
    Go back to short side string at top (the one with the starting clamp) to pull, clamp & tie off.

    Back to long side for the rest of the crosses -
    weave second cross (start under second main) (pull & clamp)
    weave, pull & clamp the rest of the crosses (from this point all crosses start over the mains until the last bottom tie off cross)

    I know that Head says they won’t honor warranty for 1 piece stringing due to the stress it causes at 90 degree. I got the rackets used and don’t have receipts so I’m not sending it back to Head if it breaks anyway.

    My question:
    Does it really put a lot of stress on the frame where it goes from main to cross at the top of the hoop? I’ve been stringing like this for a couple of years now with other Head Mid rackets and haven’t cracked a frame yet. I’m just not sure with the Prestige Classic because they are a bit softer frame and they are old. 52 pounds doesn’t seem that high but I want to hear from the experienced stringers out there.
