    Interesting that in the three video's (from Kwun, Alan and Walter) that have been posted in the last week each stringer has displayed quite different (yet efficient) techniques/work flow.

    you are giving me way too much credit comparing me to the other two.

    Thanks BSmith,
    But I can't take all the credit. During 06' (when if first started stringing) up to 09' I had always used the one piece method because I felt it was the easiest and fastest way of stringing a racket, until I met Alan and he took the time to teach me the two piece method and explained to me the benefits and quality of his string job. Alan is very meticulous when it comes to stringing and I always see him offer himself to teach the younger kids which is very encouraging to see in the community. Hats off to Alan and Kwun for providing all the content for the rest of us to see.

    Considering how many rackets you string compared to Walter and me, you do quite well!!

    I string the same way as Alan Kakinami but instead of putting the strings while its mounted on the machine I pre-string it to B9. I also use a flying camp for the first 2 strings to prevent any possible slippage and I invented my own knots similar to a slipknot which seems to good tension pretty well and I think it looks cool. Oh and I start the crosses at 8 instead of 9, but Alan told me the pros like it at 8 because theres more power so i'll probably switch to that soon

    I've learn't something off of each of you, so in that sense the comparison seems quite fair.

    ...even if the other two can string twice as fast as you

    Thanks! I'll be starting my crosses 9 starting tomorrow so hopefully with some time for muscle memory to adjust, I can get down to 10:30. Tonight, I did 2 Yonex NanoSpeed 6000's, the 1st one came out to 11:33 so i kicked it into gear and got the 2nd one to down to 11:03, till then its practice practice practice! Oh and btw these are all Rental Rackets at Royal not customer rackets

    There seems to have no drawbacks at all. Wondering if it is because of the clamps, clamp base or 7030 is simply freaking good.
