    I wonder how Yonex even addresses warranty issues. What kind of proof do they want if a racket snaps during stringing below max tension? (Assuming fairly new racket of course).

    As for me, I've been doing doing 2-piece stringing but recently 1-piece. I can cut down from 30ft to 29ft of string. I also feel more confident that the tension is holding better.

    As for crosses, I tend to do +2lbs. because I have a 2-point mount. I feel that +2-3lbs. on crosses will help with maintaining the shape, which is for aesthetic purposes. At 25lbs.+ for mains, I do about 2.5-3lbs. for crosses, so the 10% increase. So if I wanted 26lbs. I would string it at ~25x27.5. I should technically drop the mains cross a little bit to 24.75x27.25 but it really depends if I want to bother.

    hard to say for during stringing. for racket that has been strung, Yonex USA have been requesting shops not to cut the string so they can examine the string job to determine if the warranty would be granted. Yonex has been tightening up the process a lot lately. i have a feeling that they might be losing a lot of money from giving out too many warranty replacement.

    Well around here they request that you don't cut the string - cutting it is apparently enough to void the guarantee, as they'll just assume you strung it tighter than warrantied. Compared to ANY other racket company I've had experience with, their replacement service is absolutely the worst - I haven't gotten a single one and neither has anyone I know (I train in 4 clubs, so....that's quite a few ppl).

    All I can say is that they certainly don't lose money from replacing rackets in Germany

    so some shops i know, keep some cheapass strings around, when customer request a replacement without string, they will string it up with really low tension and then pass it to Yonex...
