How to string/start the horizontale strings ?
Hi, I need help guys!
I started the horizontale strings, i made a cross on the b6 ( yonex ) and then I started to strings at b9.( instruction of yonex site ) But everytime I put the tension on the first string, the strings breaks!Do I have to skip one string, before putting the tension...? I have no idea how to do it....
Can anyone help me ?
Thank you very much

Some clarification needed: does your starting knot break (or fall into the hole), or does the main on which it is tied break?
If the former, you need a new starting knot. I've got to post my variation of YULite's bulky knot (can be found on Youtube) some time...
If the latter, you can get around it by weaving the first two crosses and pulling the second one only (not the first); many of the top stringers have to do this because certain machines (the Yonex one, in particular) are so powerful. Alan K uses this technique in part 2 of the Stringfest video (also on Youtube).

can also use a starting clamp if knot breakage is a problem.
