hm... you need to study the Yonex pattern first. some of the holes you need to skip.
also you need to do the mains symmetrically. meaning you start from the center, do some left side, do some right side.
don't do one side completely and then do another side. this is to keep the forces on the left and right side balanced.
the pattern on the left NS7000/AT800 pattern should be the same as yours.

Ohh okay, I thought it'd be easier to do just one side first for some reason...Thanks again Kwun! Sorry for the troubles :s

Congratulation to both Tim and Kwun!
Tim, please study the Yonex pattern thoroughly first. Never start the main string from one end of the frame to the other. Stringing takes lots of practice. Hope you have fun .

Kwun, did you give Tim a run down of the basic when you pass the baton over?

Hey Kwun, I just received the fishscale tension calibrator but I have no idea how to use it. I tried putting string through the hook and tensioning it but it only read a .24 lbs when I was trying to string 22 lbs...Any advice?

Since the ASE doesn't have fixed clamps, the loop from the calibrator should go over the 12 o'clock support. Then make sure to lock up the turntable by tying it down with a thick cord. Next proceed with calibration as show in the video.

Is it just me or does the left side look more squished?

Ohh I was following the "other" one and it said to skip over at b9. Why do I use the at800 one when my racket isn't an at800 or ns7000?

Timothy, you should be commended for your enthusiasm in stringing. One can tell that you are going to be a dedicated stringer and that your technique will improve quickly.
But at this point in your stringing career, please take a little more care to 'look before you leap'. It should be a matter of course that you know the pattern of a racket before you mount it. You should practice your knots on scrap string before trying for the first time on a laboriously strung racket. And you should use the cheapest, most despicable racket you have to practice on --- just in case.
I have no doubt that you will be great at stringing and at whatever you do for a career... but, with your current 'leap first' learning style, if you turn out to be a heart surgeon then I don't want to be your first patient.
Keep plugging away!

there are 3 different stringing pattern for Yonex. only 3.
one is the regular (or "other" pattern in the diagram). they are the older rackets or some of the low end rackets. they have 72 grommet holes in total. the difference is that at the top right/left, the strings goes through their own hole.
one is the non-shared pattern (76 holes). most new yonex rackets are this way. the difference is that strings goes through their own holes on the top right/left.
the last one is only for ARC-Z and Voltric ZF. they have 78 holes, there are one extra pair of non-shared holes.
as a stringer, you need to identify which pattern you need to do, and with a little bit of looking at the top, you will be able to do that in seconds.

Luckily, I noticed the extra grommets at the bottom of my MX80 before I mounted it (because it's quite obvious :P) and researched it before I started stringing :P
