Why is my racket turning out slightly round after stringing?
Recently a friend bought a VICTOR MACHINE C-7031.
After stringing it looks like the racket has come out a bit round. Why is that? Is it because im not tightening the 4 head holders enough? or mounted incorrectly? north and south poles incorrect?
please let me know! ...also is it better do have a long shape racket?

and what stringing method did you use?
2 knot? 4 knot? cross top-down or bottom-up?
it is easier for us to answer your question if you give us more information.

Racket has come out a bit round
I suspect that your mains have pulled the frame with greater tension than the crosses, therefore your racket-head becomes rounded.
If you get a more elongated racket-head, then the reverse has happened; that is the crosses have pulled the frame with greater tension than the mains.

4 point or 6 point support?

i see...so should i put more tension in the mains and less in the cross?

oh! it is 4 point i think....and then also has the north and south pole. does that make it a 6 point support haha?

Only referring back to the stringer himself than can this puzzle be solved.

okay so ive tried to make the cross tension higher and all 6 point supports r firm. when weaving the supports did not move.
what is going on. unless my eyes r going off.
is there any other way to make it elongated? argh!

the next thing is you need to check your eyes. is it really rounded? or just your imagination...
maybe next time you can take a photos and do a trace of the racket head on paper.

thats a good idea. yeah i will take a photo and post it later, thanks for the comments guys. will check out how im mounting it and to see if the supports are firm. otherwise seriously if my eyes arent off i have no idea what im doing wrong =[.

Ok after checking your eyes
Here comes something that really need your good eye sight
When you set your racket on the platform,
make sure the frame is not loose especially at the north and south pole.
And you shouldn't try to elongate the frame either as it could cause serious crack.
Best would be adding 2 extra pounds for the crosses.
Btw some questions for you guys out there,
if you pre-stretched the main string, say 25 @ 10%, would you still use 27 for the cross?
Theoritically speaking the shape shouldn't be the same as a normal 25/27
Today's new machine has the 6 point, does it help in anyway?
Its a long time I haven't string a racket

Theoretically speaking the shape should be same
The shape should be same.
When the mains are set at 25 lbs and the crosses at 27, we would get at 27/27 as the finished product. This is provided we do the mains first.
Why? Because the later weaving of the crosses through the mains, on tightening, would exert additional tension to the mains.
