    No special patterns, just string like normal rackets...

    you should! I know these - none of these three patterns matches the one of
    AT700! If you don't believe - look here: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=220073&postcount=22
    But that description is also wrong (even the pic horizontal flipped ;-)
    Is there no official source from Yonex?

    Ciao, Andre

    Neil's instruction is official Yonex stringing instruction and pattern!

    I don't see the relevance of that post.
    Explain why you think the "Other racquets" pattern does not work for AT700

    I thought Yonex recommends 4Knot-method and mine is strung this way
    initially (as you can see from the pic). So how can Neil's instructions be
    officially when its strung 2Knot??

    Ciao, Andre

    1) What Neil post is official Yonex string pattern. It is 4 knots method. Please read it carefully.
    2) The AT700 cross tie off is at wrong grommet.

    I'm really glad I got the old version... Looks much better!

    Very good thread by the way...

    My AT700 is also strung with 4 knots...

    Hi Andre,
    According to Yonex stringing pattern, to start cross from the top the string tie off at B6. If start cross from throat, the starting tie off on B6. Your cross tie off at B11. Also, the stringer was a little lazy and the main tie off at B7. It is suppose to tie off at B8.

    I have two of the AT700. Same stringing pattern fresh from the store.
    I suppose its strung by Yonex. The pattern suggested here and in the
    official description above is different. So I'm confused 8-(
    This week I get my Challenger I and I'll try to string the official pattern
    to one of the AT700. So this will be my first string job and I hope I don't
    break anything ;-)
    Thank you for your patience, Andre

    If you've never strung a racket before, would suggest you use an older/cheaper racket using cheap strings for practice (a few times) first before you string your AT700. And I don't think Yonex prestrings their higher end rackets from the factory... the store you bought it from didn't string your racket to Yonex specifications.

    stringing old rackets first was my plan too :)
    But that AT700 is not strung from factory is new information for me :eek:
    This would also explain why its impossible for me to get an Yonex racket
    in whole town (Munich/Germany). I had to order it from online store (in fact
    from two different stores, with different strings (BG65 and BG68TI) but
    same string pattern :confused:

    Ciao, Andre

    I agree with SH completely. If you want to keep Yonex warranty, go with Neil's post. And yes, andre your AT700 is using the wrong gromment to tie off the cross.

    At both ends.
    Yonex moved the cross tie-off at the head to A5 for "Other racquets" also

    one last question: if the sringing pattern is wrong for both of my new AT700
    and the shop I buyed it from stringed the racket, how can there be the
    Yonex logo you see on the pic:confused:

    and they were not strung by Yonex, how can there be the Yonex logon on
    it as you see from the pic above :confused::confused:
