    Default Tie off tension loss problem....

    I just wondering a few things when it comes down too tieing of the knot at the end of stringing there always seems too be a loss of tension...

    Is there a special way or technique of tieing where i wont lose any tension? What i have done on the last pull is too increase the tension, would that be the best way????

    Also does anybody know the pro's and con's of stringing with 1 peice and 2 peice stringing??

    Thanks

    There's always loss of tension, regardless what you do. The only way we can improve is to lose less, but no way we can totally prevent it. Here're a few things you can do to improve:

    1. Increase the tension on the last pull
    2. Use more than 1 clamps on the last piece, during tie-off
    3. Minimize the spacing between the last "pass through" gromment and the tie-off gromment
    , etc

    I generally pull 1 pound more on last cross and then insert a wooden peg into the hole to stop tension loss...works quite well...

    Besides adding 10% more tension on the last tie off string, I wrap the tail onto a short wooden stick and pull in & out (sideway) three times.

    He meant, he applied extra tension when tie off, this way can minimize some tension loss.

    If you're using any sort of hitch knot, which most likely you are, make sure to use a 'rocking' or 'arcing' motion. Pull the string HARD and away from the racket to pull up slack, then arc it back to bring the knot back towards the frame. Repeat until its tight. I follow up with one more half hitch. This combined with +10% on the last string should make everything consistent.

    I use an one inch diameter wooden stick (6-8 inches long). Drill a transverse hole through it. What I usually do is to insert the end of the string through the hole and wrap it around the stick. Hold the stick and use it as a handle to pull the string couple of times for tie-off.
