    Default 10% cross in KL

    Anyone knows in KL any stringer willing to do 10% increase on cross? I've been to all so call "reputable" around stringer but none of them seems to know about it. Another thing, none of them willing to do 2 pieces stringing for obvious reason, time.

    How are you going to strung an ISO head shape racket? e.g. main > 25 and cross > 27 or main > 27 and cross > 25? I want to strung my racket @ 25 lbs..

    Is this right?

    Main = Vertical
    Cross = Horizontal

    First off,

    MAINS : 'Vertical' (parallel to the shaft)
    CROSS : 'Horizontal' (perpendicular to shaft)...

    If you want your mains tensioned to 25 lbs, you would wanna tension your crosses to 27 lbs (add 2 lbs) or 27.5 lbs (add 10%)...

    Bottom-line...
    Mains should be tensioned lower than crosses...
    - with notable exception of Kim Dong Moon's NS8K...

    When a customer asks for tension X, I use this as the cross tension and pitch the mains 1 to 3 pounds lower, depending on the tension they've asked for:

    <26 lbs - subtract 1lb for mains
    26 - 30lbs - subtract 2lbs for mains
    >30lbs - subtract 3lbs for mains

    For example, my own rackets are now usually done at 28/30. To date, nobody has asked me for anything higher than 26, but my own experiments continue...

    I strung one a few months back at 25 x 27 lbs (using BG66) without any problems. Racket was 3U...
    Hope this helps...

    recently i've tried different method on stringing.
    *one piece
    *same tension (main n cross) eg: 27.5 x 27.5 lbs
    *2 point spring machine
    *cross top-down

    the result: frame narrower than original shape and not friendly to arm due to feedback when hitting the shuttle.

    before it i used:
    * 1 piece
    * cross 10% higher than main eg: 25.5 x 28 lbs
    * 2 point spring machine
    * cross down to top
    the result: friendly to arm, friendly to smash, almost the same (99%) as it original frame shape

    The suggested 10% higher tension on the crosses is just a rough guide to stringing a racquet with minimal distortion. However, some stringers will still have some distortion with the 10% higher cross tension, more so at high tensions and with stringing the crosses from top down. Stringing the crosses from the throat up will reduce distortion more than from top down but with reduced playability because of its inability to have a starting knot for the top cross string.
    The best playabilty is two-piece stringing with a starting knot at the first top cross string. But this technique requires more stringing skill, especially at high tensions and with oval-shaped racquets.
    You can test your own stringing skill by stringing an oval racquet using 2-piece stringing, with a starting knot at the first top cross. and finishing with a cross tie-off knot at the throat end. Measure the length of your racquet from tip of the top of the frame to the end cap of the handle, before and then after stringing. You will be surprised at the results.

    10% higer has more crisp and easier to use IMO
