Why is this ATW at all? There is not a single string going around the world...
So two ships of one company go half the world west and half the world east... Do they complete a journey ATW?Look at about 16:00. The stringer takes the string used to string the right side mains and crosses 2 down and routes it back up on the outside right main. He will use that later for the top cross. Then he takes string used for the left side mains to finish the outer left main and the bottom crosses. It doesn’t matter which end he actually uses it is still a single string because he only uses 1 string.
That is not what is happening. When the stringer strung the left side he could have just as easily tied off in the top left and use the long side to complete the racket. Instead he tied off the the string from the right side and used the string on the left to go down.So two ships of one company go half the world west and half the world east...

Not to mention the short sections of the frame supporting the turn from cross to main and vice-a-versa. That would deter me from using this atw more than the omission of the outer mains. The three hard weaves is a bummer too especially if you stringing an 18x20 frame with poly.I do not like this ATW Pattern for tennis. Too much stress on the outside of the frame when leaving the outer mains out; and the harder weaves when stringing in those missing mains.
