    The SS series should have a tournament for these. Keep the fans occupied. Just like the nba with the lakers girls. Maybe a lucky draw to let a fan play with Hwang or Reiko. Or string for them.

    I do not know if this is the normal speed by stringers here in bc. But this speed is incredible! IF i can thread this fast on the crosses, i wouldnt want to preweave I think the stringer in the video did a loop to prevent tension lost on last string.

    Just strung a Powerplay9990 at 28lbs using the above method. Clocked, 57mins. Its either i go back to what i usually do, preweave, or just keep trying this method. Usually, including preweaving, i string the racket in average, 40mins.

    that's incredible speed. she feed through a shared hole like they are nothing. i like the technique with the string puller. so fast.

    also like the way she pulls the rest of the string. V down/across the string bed. very little damage to the surface of the string.

    When i was doing it, i experienced some trouble when feeding it through a grommet with my side support blocking it. Any idea how i can avoid that?

    buy a ES5Pro. notice how the side support never protrude into the inner frame area?

    dang. 8min 30sec to string the cross. 6min 20 for the main. total time is less than 15mins and there are no short cut. even the main starting is done properly.

    *dream*

    To think Iv just "improved" to 50mns and I'm on my 30th racket. Not only the weaving takes skill but one needs to be confident enough to be sure that the weave is right on each so that u don't hv to go back checking each single weave all the time.

    I am still around the hour mark unfortunately. Prestringing is not much of an option on my machine since the gripper is a bit too far from the racquet. I would love to able to weave the crosses like in that video. That weaving technique is really fast. Heading into summer here and I just can't do that with sweaty finger tips!

    That cross weaving technique is amazing. I have seen it live once in SF. The stringer went through each cross like there were no friction!

    No kidding? Those rackets with plenty of shared grommets are short of a nightmare. I just got a 'contract' to do 40 rackets, doubling my numbers in one swoop. Wish me luck.

    hmm just timed mine for few several last stringing... fastest is 32 minutes with prestringing (not on machine). I used to do prestringing on the machine and slightly put tension to main so I can preweave the cross like that on the video.. but now I just preweave not on machine.

    to be honest, I like stringing around 45 minutes. slowly but I like to put safe and neatness over than speed. safe as in less stress to racket frame.. also make sure all the string is tidy (especially outside frame).

    That's the way to do it,
