    Unhappy Problem with my first string job

    Hi guys, I have finally got my Eagnas EAG-860 machine this week. Everything looks pretty good and it took me about 3 hours to assemble and configure the machine. And it is all thank for the BFer advices that have helped me all the way, yet until now.

    So I processed with my first string job today, that I am using the 4 knots 2 piece technique. I have got the main finished in a little bit over an hour, and now I have tied my knot at A7(right) ready for the cross. Problem is that I couldnít get my string through the grommet at the left A7 where my main is sharing the same hole. I have tried countless of times, with bare hands or and combination of my tools I got. still no luck. Is there any trick or special technique to get that through? Given I only has a Tennis awl. Please help

    A7, you mean the bottom 7? If so, there 2 things I concern:

    1. The main should be tied @ bottom 8.

    2. The cross should be stoped by bottom 9, and tied @ bottom 6.

    What racket is this one?

    If ur racket has a pattern of even # of mains, then, u should consider tie the main knots @ A4, or A5 instead of A7, assume ur 1st cross go through A7.

    I am using the Yonex stringing pattern and my racket is the iso 85 VF. I tied my knot at A6 and through A7 right and got stuck at A7 left.

    Hip Hip Hurray to silentheart! No more awl . It's a crime to use an awl for shared grommets.
