    Default Bad stringing pattern

    Hi, I just received my strung racket and saw something weird i never saw before. Here is 2 photos of both sides of my racket. As you will see, both sides are differently strung and I think this could cause damage, what do you guys think?

    That's perfectly normal and is just an effect of the crosses weaving back and forth between the mains.

    That is normal LOL :-). There is no other way to string it. Think about it - crosses go like snake while mains are symmetrical.
    It's actually seems like a carefully done job - the double string is not crossing on the outside of the frame. Though not so important, it shows that stringer pays attention to details...

    That's right. It's actually perfectly done. If the stringer wasn't paying attention, the mains and crosses would cross over on the outside of the frame. The fact that both of them sit parallel means the stringer was paying close attention to your racquet while he was stringing. He did nothing wrong.

    +1.
    That's how I do my stringing too. Anyone can follow a string pattern and string a racket.
    It's the little details... and many of my clients notice and appreciate it.
