    Default After your string snaps, where do you cut.. the mains or crosses or ??

    Hi guys,
    Just curious, when your string snaps normally we'll get a scissors to cut....but where to start first - which part of the string bed ?

    If a main snaps, cut the middle cross first, and vice versa. Never do all the mains then all the crosses, or vice versa.

    Start from the middle and work your way out.

    I broke my first string in training friday, I knew you had to cut the remaining ones so I cut them all. Is that bad?

    No, you did the right thing That is what you must DO ASAP !! Alternate between mains and crosses when cutting to release tension as evenly as possible, starting from centre and work your way outwards ... just like what Mark A said below ...

    I wouldn't - it puts all the stress on one corner of the racket at the start. We don't string rackets that way.
