i absolutely absolutely hate it when this happens....
and i had the good intention of making a video of my whole stringing processe. timed and everything.
and it just had to die like that.
that's ZM62 for ya. it's the price to pay for such a sweet string.
the tension was 27lbs.

and as you can see my reaction, it was like "oh crap." "what do i do now?" "nothing, restart from scratch."

The feeling will be more horrible if that happened while you're stringing the cross (and you're done with the main) =.="

The moment of disbelief. Then the slapping of the thigh. Classic (sad but hilarious)
Good self-control not to be caught cursing on tape.

I like the music, it's got a beat and you can dance to it.
Murphy's Law strikes again.

Now imagine that happening two crosses from the end, which befell me while I was stringing a customer's Ultra 1 a while back. I recall very well that moment of utter bemusement before the inevitable realization - "back to the beginning... FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU!!!"
It was also Z62, by the way.

Hi Kwun and ppl
Take it easy!! It happened to me sometimes.
As we say here it only doesnt happen to those who do nothing (i am translating the proverb directely as we say it here).
Sometimes the work goes down the toilet in the last crosses because of the snapping or then because of serious accidental damage made by the hook applied to create the path in single grommet systems (I hate to restring yonex NS9000 because of the last top cross).
Damaged grommets many times have the fault for the situation you showed us.
It is time to a deep breath and get few minutes away from that room.

luckily i only wasted 10mins of work (at least according to the recording)
this is the first time this happens to me. in fact, first time ever a string snaps on stringing, Covina is right, Murphy's law!
i will try again tonight.

the 2nd attempt is much better. strung a AT700 beginning to end in 26mins. the video is huge. i will chop it and post it to youtube tomorrow.
comparing my video to AK's video. i feel i am so slow.

I spend that amount of time during any given stringing just on fiddling with the CD player, getting snacks, and being interrupted by children with burning questions about Star Wars and fairy princesses.
