Victor 72/76/80 holes stringing pattern
from the Victor 2011 Catalog
the Victor pattern is similar to the Haribito pattern.
a one string/two knots pattern with bottom 4 cross split up from the rest.
the instruction says, the top 5 cross and the 4 bottom cross should have the same tension as the mains, while the remaining middle cross should be 2 lbs tighter.
the short end of the cross should be 90-100cm.

Is that normal to do Double Backs on the ends before the tie offs?

it is for the Yonex pattern for the mains, but this is the first time i see it applied to the top of the cross. i have yet to understand why even do it at all. what is the benefit compared to doing it the simple way.

Victor Meteor X80 Stringing job
I play witht the MX80 at the moment, and I'm a bit unsure about the stringing I do string my rackets myself and so far I used the 4 knot method.
But now I can't use the method as I'm used to be. Hodo you string the MX80?
4 knots or 2 knots? and if 4 knots where do you tie it ?!

Anyone have the string pattern for this racket ? I'm looking for it aswell

Here's an image of the mx80 string pattern that I took from the catalog. Hope it helps.

=>> New Technic to String rackets with 72 holes
Do you agree with this technic to string rackets with 72 holes?
This is a two knots stringing. Almost everyone says that its better with 4 knots.
And what about the 5 bottom strings and the top last 4 strings with the same tension of the verticals? This will avoid that the racket stretch, but this tension will not distribute to all the horizontals?

I think there has been numerous discussions on this forum, on two knot vs four knot. While your friends prefer two knots, one famed stringer, AK, prefers four knots over two knots.
I am not worrying too much about the "uneven tension on crosses" with extra pounds on the middle crosses. Even with a 6-point machine you will see frame deformation at higher tensions when stringing, and I guess the extra pounds on the crosses might be used for this purpose. So long the racquet frame shape stays the same after the string job, I'm a happy man.

this is the Victor 72 holes pattern. zombie0517 already have a nice summary and thoughts on it.

Kwun, the question is that this pattern is being purposed by Victor for some technical reason. As you know the Yonex pattern is also applied by many other brands. So, to me doesn't seams that this pattern is a specific pattern for Victor rackets, I suppose.
As you know using 2 lbs more on the crosses the racket stretches. This stringing method from Victor seams to pretend to resolve this problem. The ideal racket shape is the one that it has without strings. Perhaps this method could do the trick.
I did several questions about this to verify if someone has experience with this kind of method and tell us which are the results. And because has you know, there are several favorable opinions about the 4 knots stringing and the one that is being indicated by Victor is with 2 knots. We are always learning, so it seams that this should be reviewed.

to me, these are the differences the Victor 72 holes pattern bring to the table when compared to Yonex:
- slightly progress tension on the cross. 2 lbs high in the middle crosses attempts to correct racket tension deviation from the main tension. while keeping the same tension at the ends to reduce stress and lower effective tension.
- one piece vs 2 piece. i believe the Victor pattern is rooted on the Gosen school so they prefer 1 piece
- center string first. leaning towards getting the center strings done first (default on main, slightly so on the cross) to add tension symmetry.
i have tried the 80 holes pattern on my MX80 and the result is favorable. a more responsive and powerful string bed compared to the plain pattern. however, i only done this once and more longer term experiment as well as A/B comparison will give a more definite answer.

perhaps if you do more fancy flow like 50/50 cross, then it is more symmetric. but i don't see many people doing that regularly. most people do top down or bottom up.
and with one string segment and fewer knots, the tension loss should be smaller.
