    just sounds like the joys of shared holes
    besides, youre not supposed to have shared holes if half of the crosses are done o.O

    as for Alan, I think him being busy is perfect, as you can just look at him do a stringjob and take notes

    1- what is your clamp doing there (down right)
    2-is that a knot at b9?
    3-did you learn how to mount the racquet at all? ur side supports dont even touch the frame

    there probably is a lot of other stuff too and ill let ppl like kwun or Alan answer you better than I ever could

    timothy, you should definitely read more about stringing before just going blindly into stringing a racquet. some people read about stringing for weeks while their machines are being shipped and still have a buttload of questions to ask when its time to string an actual racquet

    not bad!

    the only mistake is the 11th main. at the top. it should go into the shared hole (one below) instead of the single string hole.

    glad i gave you some practice string, eh?

    1. i think he is using the flying clamp as a starting clamp.
    2. i think he is copying me.

    not bad for the first attempt. i have made worse mistakes when i just started.

    in the photo: on the 11th main, the top of the string goes through A14 (14th hole from the top). it should go through A13, 13th hole from the top.

    there are 2 types of grommet holes, the thinner one can only have one string through it. the wider ones can hold 2 or 3 strings.

    for the mains or for the cross?

    for the cross it is a bit tight. but you can move the string a little.

    for the mains it should be the exact right size.

    I got confused here. I went up down skipping no grommets and this is the result. It looks really really squished on the side
