    I wouldnt recommend using 1-piece stringing for these new rackets. First off, the warranty is voided. Secondly it is not as safe as the 2 piece stringing for the rackets. I would definitely change the stringer.

    In Malaysia 1-pc stringing is very popular and is often the standard used by tournament stringers including stringers from Yonex.
    Safe stringing is more dependent on the stringer, not on the racket, string, or pattern of stringing. For example, I can string 1-pc or 2-pcs whether top down or bottom up at 30+lbs with warranty.
    Warranty is another issue manufacturers tend to play safe. They do this solely by limiting stringing tension, which is usually ridiculously low to avoid a deluge of claims caused by poor stringers. At low tensions it is almost impossible to break any racket when stringing even by novices.

    Do you know what is the white powder found on the racquet after the stringer strings the racquet?
    that is not white powder, that's candle wax the stringer applied to the strings during the string job. its at cdans right?

Grommets last a lifetime and if your rackets show sign of bruising or even slight damage then the use of the awl is the only culprit.
    Could you kindly elaborate how grommets could last a lifetime ? thanks

    The first and only time I strung my Z it was a complete pain in the arse. Not withstanding the fiddly shared grommets up top, I got down to the cross tie-off at the bottom to find the hole too small, so out with the awl. Push push push SNAP. 40 mins and a set if BG66M in the toilet. Good riddance, IMO:P.

    can the grommets of the racket eats up the frame? What if the stringer doesn't notice a broken grommet or anything and continue string it? My fren was shocked to see his ti-10 racket frame broke when he opens his baddy bag. i asked him whether it's the problem with the tension but then he said it's not the tension, maybe it's the grommet.

    just strung a zslash last night and it took me almost an hour! this is the only racket from Yonex with a specific unique string pattern. If the correct pattern is followed there are no issues with finding space through shared holes. If your stringer improvised then no wonder he had difficulties.

    a broken gromment cannot eat up or brake the frame. a bad stringing, a ridiculous high tension, or a fake racket YES.
    broken grommets will damage the strings but not the frame.
