    Hi,
    Anyone strung this beauty before?
    Should it start from throat or head?

    @jasonfoong , never strung or even seen that racket before. But mains would start at the throat.

    Correct the center loop is at the throat and every odd numbered main is pulled towards the head.

    Because of the throat bridge design, the mains will be staggered (not residing in the same plane) - particularly at the throat end of the mains.
    Therefore, be sure to give some careful thought/planning to how you weave the crosses.
    Assuming you're stringing the crosses top down, you'll want to start your top cross with the correct weave to ensure that the bottom cross ends up being correct (which should be a hard weave).
