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??

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

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.

"I wrap the tail onto a short wooden stick and pull in & out (sideway) three times."
This is what I don't understand. Thanks anyway.

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.
