    Default VIDEO: Adidas adizero pro + ZM65@22lbs stringing

    haven't done a proper stringing video for a while now. comparing to before, i think there have been some subtle changes in my flow.

    the racket is a pre-production prototype of the Adidas adizero pro racket. it has a unique 78 holes pattern which add an extra non-shared hole for the outer main.

    enjoy!

    Only 22 lbs? Afraid it can't handle more?

    afraid *I* cannot handle it anymore.

    haha. actually, for lighter rackets I tend to string lower than normal. this is a 80g one which will be tough to hit with higher tensions.

    Hmm - I was never keen on that pattern; could do with another cross at the top.

    Easy to string,but easy to break in play as well.

    what pattern? the extra non-shared at 4/8 oclock? or just the 76 holes type 3 pairs of non-shared holes?

    The 3+2 at the top; the "splitting" of T12 at the bottom I quite like, actually.

    i have not seen regular breakages at the 10/2 oclock position due to the non-shared holes. surely when there are more strings applying force on the same segment of material on a shared hole, it will make it more prone to breaking

    I was referring to breakages of the mains, not the frame (though I have seen a few Voltrics fold up in that area...).

    Kwun, do you prefer stringing using the floating clamps over the fixed clamps, and if so, why? Just curious to see if it contributes to the longevity of the string during play...

    Beautiful racquet btw...

    imho there are pros and cons to flying clamps.

    they are fast, very fast. clipping and unclipping is very easy to do.
    the spring loaded jaws do no require adjustment and from experience tend to do less damage to the string.

    cons is that they do move and lose tension when the tensioner is released and we know that the tension cannot be recovered fully after tension the next string due to friction in the grommet.


    as for why i am using flying clamps. well i was experimenting to get the feel of my string job back and one of the things that i did was to go back to using flying clamps. and it just stuck from there. i found the feeling again and i see no reason to go back to fixed clamps.

    Agreed, flying clamps are super fast and you won't have to always play around with its adjustment when using diff string gauges.

    Interesting read in the other thread you posted... if you and the customer like it, why change it! I will be getting a WISE next month so I'll try your technique then...
