I was shown this method - should I try differently?

    On other strings I tend to get the two sides pretty close in tension but BG80 and sometimes the Ti stuff tends to break.
    I use 3 knots on the tie off. There's no need to over tighten the knot because that will cause the knot to cut the string on a hard miss hit. 3 knots on BG65 produces sufficient bulk and frictional grip to prevent the the knot from disappearing into the grommet. For thinner strings, you can use maybe 4 knots on the tie off. My tie off has been used on large number of rackets and proven against hard hitters.

    In 2-pcs 4-knots stringing, if you choose the throat end to be your cross's starting knot, you will have to add at least 10% more tension for the tie-off knot at the tip end. Better still if you can ensure the tie-off process at the tip end doesn't lose any tension from string slack. If you have the cross's starting knot at the tip end and the tie-off at the throat end you need not be so demanding with the tie-off. The reason is that the stringbed at the top half and the bottom half (especially the area near the last few botttom strings) have different bounce characteristics.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for your help. I just did some BG80 with some of the suggestions here and the fellow who used it said it was very nice. Specifically, 2-peice 24*26 instead of all 26 like I used to. The head is about 2mm taller but you can see the slight difference in shape.

    Also my knots worked better, it didn't break for one!

    Thanks again, it probably seems basic to some people.
