I strung my third racquet with my new Gamma x-2. I am still learning and so I find myself making mistakes. This time I got 4 or 5 mains strung and then I mistakenly took off the wrong clamp and lost all tension. I simply started over again, which meant the strings (the cheapest gamma synthetic gut), at least those that had been tensioned to that point, got tensioned twice. Then when I was finishing the string job, I found that when I did the tie off knot, the piece of string on the outside of the racquet that goes to the tie off hole was fairly loose after I did the tie off. I can still easily move this piece of string with my thumb or finger. And I noticed that the cross string nearest to the head of the racquet is faily loose (not much tension). However, I played with the racquet last night and it seems to hit fine. So my conclusion is that the final stringing result is fairly tolerant of mistakes, such as I made on this one. Can any of you more experienced stringers confirm this? Funny thing is that if I had paid a stringer to string my racquet and they had given it back to me with these mistakes, I probably would have come down on him/her pretty hard.
