*You rated this job two out of ten..............I agree..........,I rate my job in general,seven out of ten.
*If I'm not sure what stringing pattern to do and what tension to go with,I usually study the grommets
and think what the engineer try to tell me by the looks of it.You'll know what I'm talking about after fifty
stringing jobs or so.
*I think some cheap strings is essential to start with.I buy some cheap strings directly from
manufacturer,like twenty dollars a reel.A minimum order is five reels,I remember.They make tennis
strings and fishing lines as well.You can dig them out if you could just google a bit.I don't buy good
and freshly made strings because they wouldn't give discount to anyone.They usually ship the strings
to big company once they're finished.If you're lucky you can buy some new strings even before you
see them on the market.

Does this look normal for a finishing knot? Seems to do the job ok!

I'll write to Victor and tell them to stop putting unnecessary extra holes in their frames

Freshly strung vs no strings. Maybe 2mm shorter. And very flat at the top. I use a rough interpretation of Haribito.

I started from about 4/5th cross down, I thought this would count as top down. I'll do a traditional 2PTD on the next Carlton.

I have been stringing for a while now (3+ Years). I thought I would share some of the rackets I recently did.
I used to work at a Sportchek, where the tech taught me how to string. After, I started to develop my own ways of stringing. The fastest I ever strung a badminton racket was roughly 28 minutes (Average about 35 mins).
Lucky for me, the Sportchek where I worked moved and got a new machine. In turn, I was able to take their old one and just string at home.
I use a Prince Neos 1000 with MBS flying clamps to do all my stringing jobs.
Heres a few images of the rackets I did recently:

Neat! And for sharing.
The tails in your last picture, pointing every which way. Is it just me that doesn't like that?

My other peeve is cross overs outside the frame, at shared grommets. If possible if a cross string goes under or over the main at one shared grommet, then i like it to do the same at the next.

Is the AK Knot with a half hitch not really bulky even though the tail sits against the frame?
I currently just use a starting clamp and then tie off after using a finishing knot
