    I've got a mate dropping his razor over in a bit, anyone strung one before? Any tips?

    Not really - from memory, there's no "this side up" issue with that one.

    Just make sure your side supports don't get in the way of the outside-y bits.

    You really do need a straight pull with those outside-y strings.

    Other than that, nothing to write home about.

    Ive strung this racket two times before strung it right.
    I make a notice for me for this racket:
    - standard yonex pattern
    - place the racket on your string table that Carlton logo on the buttcap is upside down (15 normal grommetd on the left side)
    - start cross knot on the right side
    - first wave under the main string
    - don't place the strange "grommets" on the side arms!

    Yeah it would be nice of them to say that if your very first cross weave is wrong, you have to start again.

    Second - a gimmick, nothing more.

    Something a stringer should try once, though, like a Wilson 2000.

    I just hate to string that racket!!
    It is not a simetrical one so it matters the position you put it on the machine and the sides you start to do the crosses.
    Pulling the center crosses makes me kind a nervous as many times the string comes out its path.
    I ve already restrung 4 and all the time i promised not to make it more :)
