    I would always string the cross at 10% (2lbs) higher then the mains.

    They don't as they recommend 10% more tension on the cross. Just to make it simplier, use 2 pound differential as in 2lb more on the cross.

    String it the way you prefer the tension to be to be honest, it's not like what we list is what you follow.

    I just want to verify that information. 2lbs or 10% more is not my question.

    It sees to be that way because the question is interpreted to some of us is what you're asking is what is Yonex's strininging recommendation.

    I am doing the 2 lbs difference way right now. I am quite interested to know the consequence of same tension for both main and cross, specially if it is recommanded by YY in their catalogue.

    A few stringers are doing main tension > cross tension and their frames are holding up.

    I had my racket strung on a 2 pt neos @ 27lbs same tension all the way around. Racket was a chaopai nano 728 power and it held just fine. Too bad the tension was too high for my liking had to give it a try, i think 25 lbs is just fine

    There is no consequence for having the mains and cross at the same tension, the racket will be fine. I personally use to have my racket like this before for a long time before I started doing 2lb differential.

    Now if you want to turn your racket into a ball [ball racket] (don't do this), string the mains higher than the cross!!

    Depends how you do it. With external shoulder supports pressing tighter, the frame actually comes out fine.

    Now if you want a ball racket (don't do this!!), main more than cross!

    Yep that's true. Ball is like doing it to the extreme as in the mains significantly higher.

    Just wondering if there is any difference in performance between racket stringing with the same tension both mains and cross vs the 10% diff between mains and cross?

    My stringer didnt sound too impressed when I asked him about stringing the main and cross at 10% tension difference; his comment was "why do iy when international players string it at the same tension both ways?"....dont know how true that statement is though....

    Not true, some of the world players do it with tension differences.

    sorry I don't understand this it may be totally unrelated but I am about to get all racquets resting and was flicking through the catalogue and saw that it says quote ' to optimize the benefits of the isometric head shape yonex recomend a 2 piece stringing pattern' what those this mean + I am about to string the racquets at 24lbs what should I string the cross section with?

    Hmm.... does "2 piece stringing pattern" = 2 different tensions? or does the new catalogue recommend same tension for both mains and cross?

    As long as the frame remains the same shape before and after stringing, than 2Lb more for the crosses or not is not the issue.

    Does the sweet spot change with either method of stringing?
