    If you use 1-pc stringing or 2-pcs stringing but stringing the cross string upwards from throat to top, then both are equally poor. Better would be 2-pcs stringing, stringing the cross from top down and using any knot other than a starting knot. The best would be 2-pcs stringing, stringing the cross top down but using a 4 to 5 loop starting knot.

    The new Yonex pamphlets say to string bottom to top using 2 pc string. At the 2005 WC I saw a guy break 2 rackets going top to bottom then on his 3rd going bottom to top he had no problem. I notice the bottom of the frame mis shaping when I strung top to bottom.

    I heard about this too, from three different people. I've strung rackets both ways, up to 34lbs. tension (32x35lbs.) and I have to say that if done correctly, top down or bottom up will yield the same, correct shape.

    I believe the stringer was unlucky. I know there were a few (stringers at the WC2005) who never used the ES5Pro prior and it's very possible they over or undertightened the side supports.

    Without knowing all the details, it's hard to say what caused the rackets to break.

    For me, I normally do a one-piece bottom up for speed and convenience. But if I'm looking for the best string job, best feeling, best performing, I'll do two-piece top down.

    Alan, I'd like to hear your additional thoughts/comments, thanks.

    I would like to second what Sir DinALot say. If done correct, top to throat or throat to top will give you almost the same shape as the unstrung racquet. However, I do find, depend on the machine, some are easier from top to throat when flying clamp is used. The most important thing is to know your machine first. When in doubt, calibrate the machine first. Make sure the holding arm is correct. Better be safe than sorry.

    But frankly speaking, i do not really see a difference between 1pc and 2pc stringing. I guess 1pc stringing will be sufficient? Pro shops in Singapore mostly do one pc.

    Also, I believe the Yonex official string pattern is 2 pc. Therefore, if using 1pc, Yonex can simply avoid your warranty, if they choose to do so.

    But will they be able to see if you strung 2pc and 1 pc if you remove the string and claim warrenty?

    Not sure about your region, regarding Yonex replacement policy. In US, Yonex US stated the returned broke racket need have string attached. Remove string or strung with wrong pattern can avoid your warranty if they choose to. I know Yonex US and Yonex CAN has been nice for years, and many ppl got lucky to receive a free replacement. However, they can tighten their policy anytime.
