    The loops from P11 and D12 will be very long if the knots are tied in the usual places, P11 especially.

    That's true.
    I wonder if the knots go somewhere else?

    jshrmohanty - would you be able to confirm where the knots go?

    Not by the original author, but someone suggests the following tie positions

    this is an interesting one.

    while the Haribito/Victor pattern emphasize the middle string first, this pattern emphasize the outer strings first on the cross. kinda like a reverse Haribito/Victor.

    This pattern is for 72 holes. Just some slight modification needed for 76 holes where b9 can go into b8 and come back to b9 again; and d9 goes to d11 and d10 or vice versa.

    I have tried this pattern a few times and i love it. The tension holds absolutely well and the areas nearest to the tie offs at the sides are the least used sides instead of the top and bottom when sometimes you may use be it delibrate or mishit. The sweetspots are very well isolated from the tie offs too. Only complain is that there are too many independent weaves that doesnt hold well for stringers using flying clamps.

    @Kwun, you should try it to believe.

    if you have tightened crosses on the top and bottom, weaving the ones in the middle is very hard. Weaving that last main-string is also kind of a hassle if you ask me...

    the interesting part about this pattern is the outside in cross string, as well as the fact that it is done in one string.

    with 2 strings you cannot do this pattern if you stick with main 1 string, cross 1 string.

    in contrast, this pattern has a reverse pattern, the 50/50 patttern, which is center out main, center out cross, can be done with 2 strings and cannot be done with 1 string.

    I tried this out today. Being used to two-piece stringing, I found all the necessary 'hairpin turns' rather off-putting. It made me wonder if I was really maintaining tension with my pulls on a string going from main to cross.
    But what I really liked was finishing with the crosses in the middle zone of the racket. It seems like you are finishing the stringing job where it matters most.

    Can't wait to try out the feel of it on court tomorrow. :)

    Well, I took out Master Paizhuan for a test drive.
    I had strung the pattern with Z62 on an average racket that I hadn't touched in ages. It must have been a decent string job, because first game out I lent it to another player and immediately afterward he offered to buy the racket.:rolleyes:

    When I finally got to try it, it did feel very nice and reactive. I think I'll be using this pattern for my next few jobs and see if this pleasant feeling is reproducible. :)

    Do you guys Think i shoulder go with uniform tension or plus 10% on crosses or a third option?

    How do you measure the string? Is there a short side or you use 1 whole set?

    There is a short side, long side.

    I rarely use any one-string pattern, so my way of measuring is inelegant but here is what I do:
    I prestring one side for 8 mains, then estimate the remaining length required for short side (four crosses and three mains) . Then the rest goes to long side.

    Have only done the Master Paizhuan once this year but I have a Panda to string so will be using it soon. :)

    I tried this pattern, the short side was about 6 racket length :)

    P11 to A10 would be ideal - A10 is an "easy" hole on that pattern.

    I'd put D12 in B9, myself, as that's the easiest hole at the throat.
