    Default VIDEO: Pre-Stringing (Again)

    Pre-stringing video link:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7U6S1uLcXw


    I did another pre-string video. I did it from the stringer's perspective for easier understanding. It was quite difficult to string effectively as I had to extend my arms away from the camera to keep my noggin out of the camera's way (even though it showed a few occasions).

    I hope it helps.

    Yes it does :-).

    I'm going to try this ASAP.

    Anyway, I think it's easier to weave with tensioned mains...

    Thanks a lot Dinkalot

    Absolutely, always. If you check out my latest stringing video I show how I do it.

    Any chance we can get a diagram of the starting knot that you're using? And do you own any shirts with sleeves?

    Panda's don't wear sleeves.

    Starting knot...tie-off...I posted somewhere already...

    ...since the image, I modified my starting knot a little at the recommendation of Taneepak. I didn't see a difference in performance but it was easier to do, faster. I'll post updated images later.

    I've seen these images, but it's hard to tell how they're made when they've already been tensioned.

    That's because I was straining to keep my arms extended and trying not to show up in the video. I'm going to try another angle next time, it'll save 2 minutes on the string job.

    because he want to be cooler?

    Hey, can you time your total weave and stringing time? It is not a speed contest but rather just to compare the average time. I'll try to record the times of my next few stringing jobs

    Pre-Weave:
    Fast: 7 minutes
    Normal: 10 minutes
    Slow: 12 minutes

    Stringing with ECP (not including mounting racket):
    Fast: 11-12 minutes
    Normal: 13-16 minutes
    Slow: 17-20 minutes

    Stringing with Crank (not including mounting racket):
    Fast: 7-8 minutes
    Normal: 9-10 minutes
    Slow: 12-15 minutes

    Something like that.

    No need, those are just estimates. I think if combined you can do it in about 30-35 minutes, that's just fine.

    How much string do you use to start weaving the short side of the mains? Looks like you've got it down to just the right amount to finish it up without need for any adjustment.

    For me, it's one and one-third arm lengths. It works out just about right.
