Thread: Where to start with crosses

No problem SH!
I am guessing the starting clamp is just for show - presentation for the camera audience.
Shuttle-house's method should work very well with a six-point suspension machine. There is no need to add 10% on the cross tension.

That's correct. However, I haven't seen tournament stringers using this method yet.

Rather than starting a new thread, I thought I'd my 2-cents here about stringing the crosses differently. Especially to maintaining higher tension levels. Although, I've been starting from the top and ending at the bottom (2-string method), how about using a 3-string process (1 for the main, and 2 for the crosses).
So let's say you start the cross(tie off knot) just below the sweet spot area (so roughly two-thirds down the raquet) and string towards the top and tie it off. Then cut the left over string and use it for the remaining third of the raquet.
Then you start a new cross (tie off knot) on the opposite site of the first tie off knot and finish off the bottom third of the raquet.
Using LB's method of starting in the middle, instead of clamping, why not start off with a tie off knot on the side?
Any thoughts? Good or bad?
Just a thought I had.

Seriously, that's too much trouble . But if you like to be creature and has lots of time then do it.

Where's LB when you need him?
It was his suggestion to start in the middle way back when this thread started
Haven't been much on here for awile.
Say hi to Cappy for me.

Starting from the middle means using the middle part (well, usually the bottom half should be a bit longer than the upper half) of the cross string and start from the middle section of the racket, not necessarily using 2 more pieces of string. Actually, using 2 pieces for cross, might result in different tension between 2 sections. Therefore, the performance might take a beat, and serious mistakes can result in racket damage as well.
