    Default VIDEO: weaving and tension cross w/ local pre-weave

    Here is the video on how to weave and tension cross strings with local pre-weave.

    A few things that i tried to cover in the video.

    - weaving the cross, over-and-under (basic but i think it should be talked about to be complete)
    - mentioned soft and hard weave
    - ok to weave perpendicular with soft
    - easier weave diagonally with hard weave
    - holding onto the string end
    - tensioning
    - straightening cross when tension
    - massage cross when tension to relieve friction

    it seems that i talked a bit too much as the length of the video has ballooned to 9 mins this time. which is not that convincing if that's what it takes to do 4 crosses.



    as usual, any comments are welcomed.

    I string my crosses 1 ahead to take advantage of the soft weave technique also. After I weave the cross, I usually just leave the approx 6 inches of string sticking out (keeps me from holding on to the string or looking for the string end on the floor) and not pull the rest of the string across. I pull the rest of the string before I do my next soft weave using the diagonal method of pulling the string across you showed in your video.

    Any particular reason for weaving four ahead? It's an extra hard weave, after all... I've seen Alan K do this as well, though, so you're in good company. I suppose it would get a couple of feet of string off the floor.

    O/T - have you tried stringing the SW35 with the extra cross at the bottom? I always did.

    I tend to preweave the last 6-8 if i do bottom up, as the deacreasing space at the top, especially with a load spreader makes it hard work. It's not so much of a problem top down though.

    i find the fewer tool and process change make it whole process smoother and faster.

    i mainly do local pre-weave now. i tried to change to weave one-ahead for a few dozen rackets but never able to adjust to it.

    from play testing, the resultant stringjobs feels the same.

    i do suggest everyone try both methods and experiment to see how they like the process as well as the results. and pick the one that you feel better with.

    for bottoms up, i go back to one-ahead to minimize twisting at the shared hole and for non-shared hole that has string rubbing.

    I do top-down and pre-weave the top five or six crosses before all the mains are in (to make the shared holes easier). This certainly causes twisting if I'm not careful, though.
