Thread: Tension 27x30 or 27.5x30

My suggestion is to set up your own qc control. You do this by placing your unstrung racquet against a wall and use a thin pencil to trace a 6" outline of the top of your racquet on the wall (stick a piece of paper on the wall). You then ask your stringer to string your racquet at 27lbs for the mains and 29 3/4lbs on the crosses. After stringing you place the strung racquet against the same spot on the wall and try to match against your earlier trace. If it is in perfect alignment, that is you don't see double lines, then stick to this stringer the next time. If not, go to a new stringer until you find one that can do the job. BTW oval racquets will require different stringing practices to iso racquets for that perfect 100% distortionless stringing. What works for one will not work for the other.

looks like i have to try it my self to decide which is better.
btw eepak, your suggestion is good, after string i'll try to match w/ the frame.
find another stringer is no good in my place, every stringer that i ask always do same tension on both cross and main. So i must request myself to do 10% higher on cross.
btw i already asked him to do main at 27 and cross at 29.7, but he said he could only do increment 1/2 lbs. haeeee...... he asked me wheter 29.5 or 30??
sometime i do below 10% at 29.5 but sometime more than 10% at 30, never try to match w/ unstrung one.

pull first main from the one side to the other side, then cross bottom up.
1st cross same tension as main, second cross until last do approx. 10% higher
this way i usually get last cross weak tension due to tie off.
this way is the easiest way even i know yonex reccomendation was 2 piece.
btw, thanks for your advis Eepak
