Thread: Is this stringing job normal?

I suggest that you take the racquet back to the stringer with the strings intact and show him a diagram of how it should be done. If the racquet breaks while it's in the stringer's possesion, it could be blamed on the original incorrect stringing.

To answer your original question, NO this stringing job is normal at all; It is not even close to what YONEX recommends; But, other people do it and will keep doing it; It is all a personal choice, I guess. It all depends on how much you care about your racket; I take of my rackets very well and hence if it were me, I would just cut the strings and take it somewhere else to get it strung.

Your stringing is wrong on the main. I'll try and tell you how to fix as best as I can.
Where you error is hole #6 from the middle at the top. The holes for the main strings are, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,11,13,15 and knot at hole #8.
So for the main string as you're going up from hole #6 from the bottom, slot it through hole #6 at the top and come back down hole #7 at the top to hole #7 at the bottom. As you go up on hole #8 at the bottom slot it through hole #9 at the top. Go down on hole #11 at the top to hole #9 at the bottom.
Here's a little chart of where the string should go too.
Main String: (I'm going to skip the first few one because it's easy.)
B <--hole # at the bottom T <--hole # at the top
B6 --> T6
T7 --> B7
B8 --> T9
T11 --> B9
B12 --> T15
T13 --> B10
Knot at hole #8
(you can also go up on hole #10 at the bottom to hole #13 at the top and them back down on hole #15 on top to hole #12 at the bottom. This way is a little easy but it's not how Yonex recommend it.)
Cross String: (This is if you use a 4 knot, 2 piece string. I've never done a 2 knot before so I don't know how to do it)
Begin by knoting at hole #5, then run the string through hole #8, from hole #8 go through hole #10, from hole #10, go through hole #12 and then it's every hole.
8 --> 10 --> 12 --> 13 -->14 (so after hole #12 it's every hole afterwards.)
You should finish cross string on hole #9 at the bottom and knot it on hole #6 at the bottom.
I hope that this helps.

Dodgy stringing job?
didnt fancy starting a new thread for what is essetially the same question. I just got my 2 of my rackets back today from them being strung. The stringing job in question is below:
I dont know anything about stringing a racket but it looks as if hes left of one of the mains on the far left...
compared to the other racket he strung for me:
The rackets were strung in quite a reputable sports shop, and the guys been stringing rackets for quite literally decades. Is it just a mistake on his behalf? Would really appreciate any help.

Top one is wrong and I will suggest you not to cut the string and take it back for refund or restrung. Good luck.

reason? 1. miscalculate, left n right not the same count. 2. opsss... not enough string... ehhehehehhe

Thanks a ton for the replies.
I gave the stringer a call saying that he had missed out one of the mains on the far left. He said he may have left it out by accident as he was rather busy today and would be more than willing to sort it out for me if I brought the racket back to the store.
He also assured me that the mains on the far left carry no tension and so wont affect the racket or the way the racket plays.
Ill probably drop the racket off some time during the weekend of i get the chance.
thanks again for the help guys.
