    Default save time on restringing - multiple piece stringing for the mains, how?

    because i'm sick of having to restring the entire racquet each time i break a string, and because most breaks are in the middle 6 main string, this is what i want to do...

    string the middle 6 mains, tie off, then string the remaining mains. Therefore, next time i break another string, i'll just have to restring the middle 6 mains. However, because this will yield more knots than usual, I can't seem to figure out where tie off due to the limited amount of shared grommets that the tie off string need to pass through. Anyone have a stringing plan for this type of stringing? or know how to get around the limited shared grommets issue?

    I do not recommend it. Better to re-string the whole racket and not do patchwork.

    amen Dan,
    like that, you ahve two problems:
    -uneven tension in your frame (might cause deformation)
    -weaving your new mains through the tensioned racket is a bitch..

    I agree with the above posts.

    Patching was alright in the old days, as most of the string job was on lower tension. Now days, with the higher tension, it's risky to do so due to un-even tension. Never to metion, most stringers refuse to do patching regardless.

    boy... do i hate to string racquets... guess i'll stick to restringing entire racquet... unless someone can solve the limited grommet issue for knot tying... then i'll give it a try on a racquet i don't care as much about.

    Yes, it is possible. Give it a little more thought on this before you give it up. However, the biggest issue here is you might crack the frame because you put too much stress @ 12 o'clock position. So give it a thought to this puzzle and think over the pros and cons before you act it out.

    Better not.

    1. Most string machine mainly support the main rather than cross. Therefore, with only cross there, no enough support during the re-string, which result into racket damage.

    2. If you string a new racket, NEVER dismount a racket during the progress. Therefore, mounting your racket with only cross on is the same problem. With the shape change, there will be either no enough support or over stress on the frame, which result into (a) not accurate string tension and (b) out of shape (or even broke) frame.

    3. The cross string is already used. Therefore, no one can accurately tell you what the actual tension is. Therefore, hard to set the correct main tension to go with it.

    Good advises, Thanks lazybuddy. I wrote the reply without thinking it through .

    I only string my own rackets less then 20lbs. I left badminton for the last 6 years or so. I found the newer rackets (just bought NS9000S, AT150, AT300) are so well mak, they retain the shape and paint really really well.
