    The candle wax is more applicable if the string is gut. It is not necessary for synthetic strings.

    Who knows. It could be a special power pattern. Play with the string first. If it gives you extra power, don't cut it.

    apart from the bizarro extra cross at #7, the candle wax. and the fact he used a ns8k stringing pattern for a ns9k...what is there to go wrong?


    will the racket collapse if you string a main-string through a cross-grommet. I mean, I admit the job is messed up, but hold your horses
    I'd definatly inform the stringer though, it's not exactly "a job well done"...

    Yes, it is normal to have 24 crosses. When you buy a racket, it becomes yours to do as you please. That means you can have 1 cross or 100 crosses and no one can tell you what to do - not yonex, not your dad, and not your badminton friends.

    I showed a link to the official Yonex stringing pattern for the NS-9000 and that is all. If you wish to increase the number of crosses to 24 strings, then it is your call.

    LMAO...

    It looks like the stringer, wanted to make sure every single grommet that could fit 2 strings through, had 2 strings through them... if the mains were on an angle I'm sure those would have 2 strings going through them too

    Thanks to all stringing guru who answer my question . No right or wrong on this stringing job... (coz my NS9K still in one piece after a few terrible mishit)

    Well, after my last session... I feel no difference between this and the standard method for both power and control~ but, I got a funny feeling that the tension at the sweet spot area is much higher than others (correct me if I am wrong or against by a law of physics??).

    I strongly suggest you to cut the string, ask for the refund, and re-string with a reputable stringer due to the following reasons:

    1. Warranty. With obviously wrong string pattern, Yonex can void your warranty if in case you do need one.

    2. Possible damage to gromment, as silentheart mentioned in his post.

    3. Possible damage to frame. It might not show the sign for a while, but I believe Yonex R&D invest their string pattern for a reason. A wrong pattern might result in greater pressure load on certain spot, which means higher chance for damage, especially with high tension.
