    Why do you specifically need one that uses an Official Yonex String pattern?

    When do you ever tell yourself during a match, wow my strings look nice? Doesn't the stringing quality count? If there is a better pattern than the Official Yonex one then why not just go with that? It's about performance, not looks.

    There are just too many people here just care about the looks. Not only strings but rackets. ;)

    I forgot to mention, isn't ASBY at the bay area? I have heard their string job is pretty good. :)

    Well, Yeah, but I prefer 23 cross strings as for the larger sweet spot. :)
    I don't do 22 anymore.

    However, I know there are still tons of stringers out there do the 22, but it's just not my style :) (but if someone ask me to do it that way, I have no problem with that ;) )

    I actually didn't like Asby that much when I stopped by to ask them a few questions about string tension. They were hard to get answers from ... kinda like pulling teeth. :(

    They strung one of my racquets in the summer. There was a guy around 18 that strung mine, and he did 23 cross strings... I told him to string it at 25/23 lbs, but i think he strung it at 22/20 lbs...:crying:

    Never seen a cute lady there... only see a mid-age dude with glasses...

    Did they string your racquet with 22 cross strings?

    Ok so here's the story. The guy ^^^^ you mentioned quoted me 4pm pickup time the same day. So I chilled at my buddy's place till 3pm in Mtn View. I drove over there but it was still early so I decided to take a nap. I woke up at 450 and walked in. There she was ... working on my second racket. She was working so fast I couldn't see her hands. It was so interesting to watch the racket being strung, but she was so cute I couldn't decide which one to stare at. :rolleyes:

    She did 21 cross strings at 22 lbs (I asked for 22 lbs, but didn't specify how many cross strings--I didn't care).

    21 cross strings is the official Yonex's recommendations (as seen in the AT800 string pattern)
