    sorry for the confusion.

    the first sentence is a bit dated. supposed to be from 6 months ago.

    the second sentence is as of today.

    and now sitting on the machine to be strung. with the proper Victor pattern. let's see how that goes...

    Can you please post a pic of the freshly strung racket with the proper Victor pattern.

    I'm getting conflicting opinions on how it should be strung

    Thanks

    i am going to attempt a video. let's see how this goes with a brand new racket, brand new machine, brand new string, and brand new pattern. a recipe for disaster don't you think?

    and probably means it should be on video...

    OMG. that was a lot of work. esp with trying to coordinate the video.

    video will have to be put together and then later on uploaded. i will try to skip through the boring parts.

    i don't understand though.

    the pattern is pretty explicitly spelled out in the diagram. what's the confusion?

    I bought a used one and I'll bet it's been strung wrongly.

    wrongly meaning the guy attempted Victor pattern and failed?

    or didn't even do the Victor pattern at all?

    I noticed they missed out the grommets at the bottom where the mains and crosses are supposed to be. Instead they shared a grommet at the top to do the cross/mains. Make sense?

    What's the benefit of a full woven racquet?

    ^^ More stiffness and stability. But requires good technique to get the most out of it. Btw MX series is not fully woven frame, only the top most layer.

    not sure. that's a common place to break for any racket.

    get another one!

    i bought a replacement for mine already. now thinking maybe i should get one more.
