I've been stringing for several months now and have been getting better (faster and more consistent) and have gained some confidence now.... Enough so that I can't leave well enough alone. The racquet I string most often is the Weed X-One25 as it is quite popular at my club and several people I string for play with it. This is a bit of an unusual racquet. It is huge and require that the tensions be dropped off at the outside 3 mains and crosses although (for warranty) though no one's noticed any problems or difference at constant tension (in fact the pros at the club recommend that it be strung at constant tension). That aside, the string pattern is: skip 8T 10T 8B 10B 11B shared: 11T, 12B tie off: mains - 4T or 7T; crosses - 4T or 7T, 6B With either a 1 piece or 2 piece string job, there's a lot going on at the top from 11T (last main) to 4T, 7T (tie off) and 8T (cross start).... String bunches up in triples with tough grommets to thread through. I've been staring at my most recent 1 piece string job and have noticed that if instead of tying off the shortside main (exit through 11T and tie off at 7T), I continued it for the first cross (exit through 11T, 1st cross through 8T and tie off at 4T on the "long" side), I can clean this up quite a bit and it would be easier to string. I would have to start the crosses from the long side on the 2nd cross. I can think of nothing wrong with this pattern but then again... I'm a newcomer to stringing. I realize this is tough to visualize but basically it's weaving the first cross with what's left over on the shortside main. Any issues with this patern?
