Stringing "weave" question for stringers
Just joined the group after being a lurker for the past year. So, hello everyone!
I have a stringing question, and I'm going to do my best to describe what I'm asking. I recently received a racket, and there is something different in the string job vs any of my other rackets.
The bottom two horizontal strings aren't weaved in opposing directions. Basically, the string goes over the verticals, and is just resting on the last two horizontal strings. Will this affect performance at all? The string is Zymax 70, which already moves a lot to start with.
Thanks for any help that can be provided.

Notice the bottom two horizontal strings. They're both on the same side of the verticals.

This means that you're stringer missed a weave, cause there isn't any friction holding the bottom cross string it will therefore move a lot more, you will be able to show this to your stringer and get them to re-string it again, not sure if it affects performance though!

I agree with Henry. Definitely a mistake by the stringer in the weaving process. I don't think there will be much of a performance difference though since this is at the bottom of the racket. This is an area where you shouldn't be hitting at in the first place. I also don't see a risk to the racket itself (unless you had it strung at high tension)
I don't know if you necessarily want to have it restrung right away. I'm sure you can still play with the racket. Just ask for a credit from the stringer so that he doesn't charge you for the next string job.

It wasn't my stringer that did the work. I bought the racket from a dealer, and it arrived like this.
Thanks for the answers, guys. I think I'm going to have it restrung in the near future, as the string movement really bothers me.

Out of curiosity, is that a Panda Power Revelation strung with red Ashaway Zymax ...65???

Close. Zymax 70.
