    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...

    My stringer said that +2 should be on the main and not on the cross?? so he strung my racket at 26/24.. would this be bad for my racket?

    That's a first. I wonder what his theory behind that logic is.

    Default +2Lbs Cross or main?

    The extra 2lb is usually on the cross. Your previous reply on this thread stated that your stringer was stringing the mains with an extra 2lb tension? Either way unless your rackets are strung at extremely high tensions there is no danger of the frame breaking from such a small variance. Personally, when I string badminton rackets I tend to either string both mains and crosses at the same tension or add 2lbs to the crosses but I really do not know what the benefit of adding 2lbs to the crosses has.

    As a quick question, is +2lbs needed on a Victor C-7031? I couldn't find the information online.
    (And no, I do not own one of these things. The only stringer close to us has one.)

    the first pound.

    let imagine the situation in which we have a good 6-pt machine.

    we weave and tension mains string first, and then we weave and tension the cross string. when we tension the main string, the strings are a straight line when tensioned. without loss of generality, let say we first tension the mains to 20lbs.

    then we weave and tension the cross at 20lbs. notice now that after the tensioning, the mains are no longer straight as they are weaved with the cross. the result of the mains being displaced and since the frame isn't moving, the tension will have to go up. by how much is anybody's guess, but my guess would be say 1 lb?

    now, if the mains goes up by 1lb, then we have to increase the cross tension to 21lb to compensate for the difference.

    the second pound.

    i believe if we have good support, 1lb or so is all we need. many have said that if we have a machine with no support, we need 2 pounds to compensate the distorted frame. i think that is a legitimate argument.

    collorary:

    what else can we find from this?

    well, one observation i can see is that, if we tension, eg. 20/22, the resultant mains tension is actually higher than 20. and imho, more like 21 or so.

    does that make sense?
    I'm playing at 28lbs. (4knots)
    I'm string for myself all the time. (6PT MACHINE)

    Which I put 28lbs for main string, last string before knots (+1lbs) which is 29lbs.
    26lbs for cross string. did the same, (+1lbs) which is 27lbs for last string before knots.

    May I know is that the right way ? Or i should change 26lbs for main string n 28lbs for cross ?
    Thanks.
