    No, is there a need? Have you strung a racquet before? If not, do not start with AT900-t.

    I've strung a racquet before, just thought that a video might help even more. I'm not a pro though, takes me quite a while to correctly string a racquet.

    Yes, just increase 2 lb tension on the cross and insert the long string from B10 into B9 and weave through and tension the first cross.

    Thanks a lot silentheart. Just to clarify, so one side is tied off at B8 and the other side will be going from B10 to B9 ?

    Will there be any differences to string like that as compared to the 2-strings method ? Is the 2-strings method a more 'proper' stringing method ?

    2 piece method is Yonex official string pattern. Depend on your region, if you use different string pattern or max tension, Yonex can easily avoid your warranty.

    everyone has to start some where :D

    my extreme passion for badminton lead to me obtaining a stringing machine. it didn't come with any manual and i had to experiment it myself and rely on googled instructions. i started off with a fishing line :p

    thanks for the courage. I still haven't had an answer yet ... Is there a difference between 2-strings and 1-string ? Which one is better ?

    help ~!!! This is just the first time I string the racket (the racket bought last month) and one of the grommets have went into the frame.

    Now what do I do ? Can I still use the string or should I cut it off to save the racket ... man I can't believe this, the racket costs RM600.

    looks more like the grommet fell out before stringing and you strung it without the grommet.

    Don't worry, it won't hurt the racquet, and you can restring it fairly soon because without the grommet the string will snap fairly soon anyway (if you play with it)

    It depends on what tension is. For low tension, it might be fine for now. Just tell the stringer to insert a gromment before next re-string. However, if the tension is high, u should cut it right away, and proceed the step as the previous one.

    Nop ... The grommet is there, it went INTO the frame. I can confirm that because on the other end you could see the black grommet longer than the others... Yeah it's quite high tension ... like 26lbs, can I still play with it ? Even for a little while ?
