No you didn't weave it right. The purpose of the staggered grommets is to hold the outer strings in.Alright guys & gals -
I winged this. Check my work please. Did I weave it right? It didn't make sense to me to weave the high grommets going under the first main. Saw nothing on Klipper for it specifically, came to me unstrung from club member.
Actually hard weaves on all outer strings, but if you get the first weave wrong all the others will be wrong also. Be careful to keep your crosses straight as you go, if you wait until the end to straighten them out you'll have a big curve in the strings and loose a lot of tension straightening them out.Irvin is correct.
Staggered string patterns use hard weave on first X.
Since it is not your racquet best to restring it and have it done properly.
I hope it was an inexpensive string used.
That feels a bit like a condescending lecture, but I appreciate it.@chrisingrassia
The staggered grommet goes back to wood racquet days. So, yes, some of this is related to experience as to the purpose of the staggered system. As @Irvin remarked elsewhere (in a different thread perhaps) carefully examining the racquet before stringing (and even an empty frame) can mean no need to rely on stringing instructions
