    Depend. If the tension is not too high (imo <22lb) it is ok to pull first 2 strings when you tide the starting knot. You can also use the starting pin method and strat from from the middle of the racquet and you will get a better and even tension at the end. Try both methods after you get your machine.

    I never tried to string the cross from the center but it does seem like I can use start pin
    this way. I will try this. Thanks again!

    Good point. I usually starts at the middle (for balance purpose), and it works fine.

    I think it is better to use a starting knot and pull the first two crosses in one go than to finish at the top with a normal tie-off knot.
