    I saw the pictures are also shorter at main and fatter at cross.
    maybe Kwun can take another picture from similar grommet-to-grommet.
    The picture on the cross is not using similar grommet.
    at picture #4, the left grommet is slightly low compare to the picture #5, therefor the result of measurement almost the same, but if move the ruler on the similar position, the picture #4 would be shorter.
    but, I think the shorter or fatter is around 2mm only, which is still OK with me.

    and as per Pete LSD said ... as long as the racket shape is still the same, it is no issue whether to put more 2lbs on Cross or keep it similar.

    but, from the Victor catalog 2011 , it said :
    - 5 first top cross = main tension
    - 4 last bottom cross = main tension
    - other cross = main tension + 2lbs
    So, Victor has revealed their stringing pattern, .....

    This is what I use when going over 30 lbs - makes a lot of sense.

    Anything to look out for when getting digital ernier coming from HK?
    Looooong shipping delays (unless you're in HK, ofc).

    Lately, I have been stringing the cross string very similar to Victor's instruction, but with a few twists:

    1st 2 crosses from top @ 30 lbs

    next 2 crosses @ 31 lbs

    next 2 crosses @ 32 lbs

    and then back to 33 lbs for the remaining crosses

    Kenzo might have a valid point before. However, the pictures could have been distorted because of camera work when he compare them with photoshop.

    Please note that I am not saying who is right and who is wrong. Here is a picture from Kenzo I am still saying it might be a issue with camera work cause the miss understanding.

    i think the stringer do a lot of effect. If the racket is a good one, a good stringer can get to 30Ibs ( good racket mean above 100 dollar USD). If you buy normal racket like alloy one, you would get a lot of trouble when you tension up 25Ibs. Best is get a computerize racket stringing machine and look for the famous stringer to do the job is you need to have a very high tension. Normally using manual, they just do not dare to string up to 25Ibs. So if you like high tension string on your badminton racket, I recommend the high end racket like armortec 900, arc 10 and etc. There are very reliable racket that you can even string up to 30Ibs with a well train stringer and computer stringing machine.
