    Default that's wonderful using string hook

    that's good idea to use string hook but it's hard to go cross through out. i try to pull up and down but it's really hard through out. would you mind tell me more detail skill.

    Actually, the dental floss is gentler than the string mover.

    increase by 1 to 2 pounds. then tension and clamp. ensure when you clamp that you are leaving out as little un-tensioned string as possible by clamping as close to the edge as possible. then tie the knot.

    i do triple half-hitch. the first one i pull as hard as i can to ensure not too much tension is lost. the other two would be done the same way but you don't have to pull so hard.

    I have done 2 rackets so far, tried "half hitch+pro knot" rather than "double half hitch" the second time, looks much better to be honest.

    Remember to use the stringer mover or tensioner to tighten the single half hitch knot first before proceeding to the pro knot .

    20-25 mins is considered pro level. 15 is nerd. Flying clamps sure helps.

    Normally took me about 1 hour too
    Fastest I can do I think I did it in around 30 minutes but I prefer 1 hour. I prefer keeping the quality of the job, neat, and preweaving so the racket spend minimum time on tensioning part.

    Its possible to be in 15mins if electronics being used. For those at 1 hour level, it's time for upgrade or a new version...

    I know this is an old thread. I just saw it and have time to see the video. A few comments
    1) Regarding stringing time, to string a racquet on any machine, 20 min is prob the limit for any one from a empty frame to finish.
    2) The video did bring back some of my childhood memory. I remember I help my mom making silk flower to make extra money (I didn't have to, it was interesting to kill time and to help my mom).
    3) The racquets are tension by hand and there is almost always low tension. That is why they can do it so fast.
