Hi everyone, I'm new here, and new to stringing. Started stringing my own rackets and some of my friends' as well. I've been trying both the 1 piece and 2 piece stringing methods, but I've found that more often than not, my racket head seems a little fatter with the 1 piece method. I'm wondering if I need to increase the cross tension for 1 piece method, similar to 2 piece? Most information I've seen online says that for 1 piece stringing, cross should equal mains. The rackets I've tried on are: Nanoray light 11i Voltric Z-Force II Arcsaber 2i Silver Grey training racket Aerotek FZ Saber Ti Guangyu Findings: So far, the yonex rackets have the least deviations, ranging between 1-3mm. (No issue with 2 piece method with +2lb on crosses for yonex) I've done a few Aerotek ones and had around 6-8mm variation. (This applies to both 1 piece and 2 piece methods) Did an old *I think* was ashaway or apacs racket and that one really rounded out even with 2 piece method and +2lbs on crosses with BG65 at 23lbs for mains and 25lbs for crosses. Strings used were mainly Yonex BG80 Power or BG65 String pattern used: Yonex 2pc stringing method, Haribito basic. Tension ranged from 24-26lbs Machine I'm using is a Gamma progression II ELs (6pt mounting) Any tips or suggestions greatly appreciated!
