Will there be any issues if parts of the string is strung at a higher tension?
So I went to get my racket restrung with BG 85 today. This is the first time that I saw an electrically assisted stringing machine. I requested my racket to be strung 19lbs x 21lbs. I wasn't paying all that much attention to the stringing process because I had faith in him. While we're talking, I notice that the machine displayed 22lbs instead of 21lbs. When I brought it up, the guy goes oops and said don't worry that he didn't strung any part of the racket at the slightly higher tension. I wasn't paying all that much attention so I can't say for sure. Now I'm worried that part of the racket may be strung 1lb higher than the other half. Do you guys think there will be any potential issues? I used the racket today and things seemed fine, but I'm slightly annoyed by what had occurred.

that's why i never disturb my stringer when he's doing my racket...
and it's normal to string the last few crosses at a few lbs higher to compensate for the knot slip
but 1 lb is not much... it'll probably drop 1 lb after a few sessions of playing

I think you may have misunderstood me. It was suppose to be 21lbs for the cross and 19lbs for the main. For the cross, I suspect parts of it is strung at 22lbs and parts of it at 21lbs after I notice the wrong tension on the machine's LCD. Like I said, the performance seemed to be fine. In fact, I think I may be smashing harder, but that's probably due to it being freshly restrung.
I was also told that when a racket isn't electrically assisted, there will be variance in the tension throughout the racket. So having that in mind, do you think the racket is going to be ok? I suppose it might not be a huge problem given that it's only 1lbs, but I'm just curious.

The tension is so low that there wont be any problems

agreed with the rest of the people here, tension too low, won't make a difference.

You have to go up to something like 29-30 lbs, before it will begin to get crittical
