Tension getting loose too quickly?
Ok, I am a noob at stringing.
Yesterday, I Strung my NS9000X with BG80 @ 27/30lbs
It went smooth as it can get, everything is fine, tension is normal
but 5 hours later, when i took the racket out of my bag, the tension is GONE
It felt like a 22lb string job
I string with the stringing instructions beside me
and no loose clamping and faults occured during i string
Did anybody know or have any clue or experience of such events?
(P.S. My other rackets are fine)

did it start to rain outside?
I'm curious as to whether or not, humidity was a factor...
or temperature for that matter...
I think there were some discussions some time ago...

errr, do you have 2 ns9X's?
you sure you tied off correctly? Strung every string? (some beginner forget to tension the last main before they tie off) doe you have a crank ro dropweight?
just re-do and try again...chances are it's a freak occurence indeed

Maybe the knots were slipping??

If that is the case, we are talking about major slippage .

Wonder whether the racket remains in shape, or getting wider/narrower? If so, might be forgot to tension the last piece before knotting.

BTW, i was getting sick of that tension, so i decided to restring the racket AGAIN!
Pray that everything will be right

ensure the knots are tight. people recommend double half-hitch but i do triple half-hitch to be safe. i remember my first knot took 15 mins.

Make sure the stringer is not making any double pulls on the strings (i.e. strings 2 lines and then tension). It may feel good at first, but after a couple hits, you will begin to notice a major loss in tension.

it is possible to double pull on the vertical strings with no loss at all.

To be more accurate, provide us the sound pitch of what it is making - it will give us a better referece on how much tension actually dropped.
