    hehe, one stringer in the west could string my amortech 600 in under 45 minutes but took 1hr to string the arcsaber z slash as mine was the first he stringed. He said the grommet holes will extremely slow and the string was sitting on it and not going through D: He took one torchlight, a screwdriver and shifted the string aside and started pushing the string in, it took many tries to succeed.

    Is the grommet holes in arc saber z slash TAT small?!

    he did it wrong. the z-slash has its own stringing pattern and he is trying to force a different pattern into it.

    find a different stringer.

    There is nothing wrong with the stringing other than 1-pc stringing was used.
    However, for a stringer to be seen using a screwdriver instead of a string mover is not encouraging.
    The stringer probably had some problem inserting the fifth cross string from the top as these shared grommet (2) have a smaller hole than the ones across cross string #7.

    at first he used a string mover, but then he gave up and started using a screwdriver as got more thin tip
    so it is safe to play with it?

    Screwdrivers do not have a pointed tip; only awls have. Stringers who use an awl are responsible for more racket micro cracks and grommet damage than any other causes. If you see any stringer with a pointed awl in the stringer's store it is best avoided. Anyway have a look at all your grommets and see if any has been bruised. Grommets last a lifetime and if your rackets show sign of bruising or even slight damage then the use of the awl is the only culprit.

    ah so it is not as bad as i thought. he did have the right pattern but probably need more practice threading shared holes.

    the grommet holes are fine.

    Do you know what is the white powder found on the racquet after the stringer strings the racquet?

    White powder on your racket? I have never heard of any powder being used. You sure it is not some sort of drugs?

    I wouldnt recommend using 1-piece stringing for these new rackets. First off, the warranty is voided. Secondly it is not as safe as the 2 piece stringing for the rackets. I would definitely change the stringer.

    In Malaysia 1-pc stringing is very popular and is often the standard used by tournament stringers including stringers from Yonex.
    Safe stringing is more dependent on the stringer, not on the racket, string, or pattern of stringing. For example, I can string 1-pc or 2-pcs whether top down or bottom up at 30+lbs with warranty.
    Warranty is another issue manufacturers tend to play safe. They do this solely by limiting stringing tension, which is usually ridiculously low to avoid a deluge of claims caused by poor stringers. At low tensions it is almost impossible to break any racket when stringing even by novices.
