    Default Take a look at this stringing job please

    Hey all. My friend did this stringing job for me with what little experience he has so I'd appreciate any opinions.

    This was his first time stringing with two-stings/four-knots, using some AM-200 machine with a couple of clamps of some sort. These are BG80s on my MP30.

    Cheers.

    I hope that's a cheap muscle power racquet you gave him to practice on!

    Looks OK - must have taken some time(>1hr) because the strings are pretty neat down the side.

    It looks like your friend did a good job.

    How is the tension?

    It took about 75 minutes from start to finish I think.
    I'm a little concerned because I thought there were supposed to be 22 main strings and 22 cross strings and he's given me 23 cross strings.
    Also, the tie offs are on the 7 position of both sides and 5 position of one side. I thought it was supposed to be 8 position on both sides and a 6 position on one side.

    It feels like my requested 23x25lbs but I haven't played with it enough so that the tension has levelled out throughout the whole string yet. It's still getting somewhat displaced so I'll probably not get the best out of it until this Friday or Sunday.

    I think these are minor details and would only have a psychological effect on your play. Effect on the racquet should be pretty minor. The only problam I can see if with a longer stringing time, the racquet head is subjected to uneven forces during the stringing process for longer. That might put some internal stresses on the frame. Cooler could probably say more on this matter.

    The official yonex pattern is 22 cross. Since ur friend did 23 (as many others did), it will impact the tie off spot, as B8 is taken by the extra cross.

    Overall, as long as the racket main shape, it's not a bad job for the 1st few demo run.

    My MP99 also has an extra cross... Crazy stringers lol

    Here's what they say on mine.

    Other than that, I think the stringer did a good job. Judging from the parts near the tjoint where the stringers weren't overlapping. Unlike mine...

    I can see the shape is slightly distorted....spade like. Should check it with an unstrung racket.

    Actually, the overlapping might be a good thing? I mean, personally I think it will provide the same impact as the "muscule power frame".
