    Default Hard weave/ soft weave

    Just out of curiosity, is this a new term for most stringers? That is what I was told.

    I only learned it from Kwun but I haven't talked to the local stringers about it before.

    Same here. I think Kwun might have coined a new stringing term.

    Nope, I have seen 6 year old videos regarding the hard weave.

    Heard it all over the place... My 76 year old grandfather uses the phrase! He always used to weave one ahead.

    Yep, we use the two terms 'hard-weave' and 'soft-weave' in tennis and they're both definitely terms that are well known in that community.
