    In my experience, 4 knots will hold the string tension better than 2 knots. There are stringing patterns provided by the manufacturer (e.g. Yonex) on their recommended stringing pattern. You may refer to this as an example from Yonex: http://www.yonex.com/products/badminton-stringing-instructions/

    Hmmm .... Interesting, coz one of my stringer says 4-knots losses tension easily, but provides a more even tension. I personally prefer the feel of the 2-knots bcoz I don't like any of the 4-knots I tried locally.

    However, the 4-knots on my Legend 2 (by racquetforce.com from Hong Kong), and Cab50 (from rakuten jp) feels superb! Both at 24lbs.

    Maybe I haven't encounter a good 4-knot stringer here in Singapore .... Lol
