Thursday night, I was a little more on experiment mode. The idea is that new Yonex racqets has 21 cross vs older model has 22 cross. I was stringing a NS9k-s and I decided to cut a 9m string from a reel and see if I can string it with just 9m. I was able to string the NS9k-s with just 9m (22 main and 21 cross w/ 22X24lb). Just made it with 10cm to spare on drop weight machine. I string the mains first without cutting the 9m string. After I finished the mains, I cut it and start the cross. I did not pre-weave the racquet. I for the fellow stringers out there, can any one give a try and verify my result. I just want to make sure my measurement is not off. Thanks and have a nice weekend.
