    I would use the Yonex pattern for the main string as there will be a lot less tension loss during the knot tying process.

    Actually according to a respected stringer I talk to, he said that the Yonex pattern on the mains actually creates a lot more stress on the racquet. Not sure how accurate this claim is but that's what I've been told so there may be reason why Li Ning went against the conventional Yonex pattern there.

    The reason the Yonex pattern reduces stress on the mains at 10 and 2 o'clock is because of the way the main strings are weaved and tension around that area. With the last two main strings on the side according to the Yonex pattern, the strings are pulled in opposite directions towards each other at the top and thus creates more compression at that frame area and adds strength rather than pulling the two apart as with the usual alternating weave pattern such as this Li Ning pattern we're seeing here (kind of hard to explain without the use of a drawing so please make do).

    As for the Li Ning pattern it would definitely be easier to follow for the very average or sometimes plain ignorant stringer (lots of these in the Asian countries, to be honest), so it could be a marketing ploy to increase sales. Or for the die hard LN fans you could say that LN has somehow found a way to strengthen that part of the frame which is not very hard to imagine and thus will not need the Yonex pattern to protect it.

    That 12-8 loop is really long; 9-12-10-knot, IMO.

    Most LN rackets have this pattern, but a couple of the new ones have the Yonex "2+3" system (the N60 and N80 at least, I think).

    Looks exactly like the "OLD SCHOOL" Yonex basic generic pattern that can be used with all racquets.

    FYI, you will get a really shitty string job if you use this pattern with fly clamps. If you have fix clamps, you need to try it out yourself.

    Does anyone have the stringing pattern for N80 Braid Powertec 300B? This frame has the string grooves like the old wooden badminton/tennis racquets.

    Thanks,
