    for pleasure. i am too slow and lazy to make a living out of it.

    for education. it is something that a badminton fanatic would love to learn to do.

    for consistency. i like to be able to get the same string job, every time.

    Kwun, do you notice any extra wear by zm62 on the grommits? I had a couple strings dig through the grommits and broke on the frame. I wasnt sure if it was the string, the old grommits or what.

    no. ZM62 while thin doesn't really cut the grommets. usually the texture of the string has more to do with it than the thickness.

    IME Z62 knots definitely cut into their grommets moreso than other strings - as a Z62 player I have a bag of 600 2.7s on standby for this reason.

    you sure?

    maybe you should try ZM67@31lbs. one of Panda's favorite tension (or is it Pete?)

    Definitely... I have to use a larger knot with 62 than any other string I use, the first time I didn't it held but sank halfway into the frame.

    I'm up to about 10 rackets strung with my wise head now. I really like it, much faster and I can feel a noticeably tighter string bed when strung at the same tension as my old crank. I've started to reduce the tension by 1.5 lbs for those that were used to a certain tension on my old machine. I.E. if usually string at 24x26 for them I dropped it to 22.5x25.5 on the wise.

    that's for sure. but i think we are talking about the string cutting into grommets in other locations.

    Ya... I think if the tension was high enough it's a problem with any string. The quality of the grommet also makes a difference. I strung a racket with BG70pro at 24x26 and the corner grommets all cracked (N55).
