    Too bad.
    Not really an advantage but would still be cool imo.
    I must have mistaken it with xZhongCheng's version.:rolleyes:

    My Variation takes the around the world approach. I found the haribito pattern to actually break some rackets down on the 8 o'clock position. because the shape of the head isnt completely square. All Yonex, Victor, and Li Ning rackets I have strung have been fine with the original version. My around the world variation just adds that extra protection to the 8 o'clock position just in case ;)

    I recently tried your way as well. It's really neat and fun to string. I only did one piece on Yonex rackets and had no issues with the original harabito in terms of breakage. Since time is not a big factor for me I probably stick to your pattern for now even tho the 2nd variation of s_mair looks really cool too.

    Fell in love with this pattern) but I'm new to stringing, tried to put it 2 times. First time - miscalculated the length of long side and came short, second time did everything okay but forgot to scrap-string lower shared holes, used a awl pathfinder and had torn the string)

    bummer, will give it another try this week)

    So, here we go again. As announced, I've managed to shoot another clip showing the "Simon Mod" (I'm so modest...) of the Haribito Professional pattern. I've done it on about 15 rackets so far and I'm still really happy with it.

    Enjoy!



    As always, any comments are highly welcome.

    Side notes:
    I've commented on the differences to the original pattern and still kept some basic advice from the original clip in.

    Also, I did move the lower side supports upwards one hole to make threading the final main on long side easier.

    The string lengths I took to shoot the clip were about 20 cm longer than what's said in the comments to get some safety margin.

    @kakinami - time to grab another drink, mate (but a small one...).

    Wow, looks supercool.

    So, to reiterate (for 76-holes racket):

    - Pull 10 mains both sides
    - Clamp short side
    - Weave 14 crosses starting from the upper first shared hole.
    - Finish mains long side, clamp
    - Finish main short side
    - Weave 2 bottom crosses short side, tie-off.
    - Finish with 6 upper crosses long side, tie-off.

    The advantage here (as I understood) is single thread for sweetspot.

    Will try that pattern this evening)

    Looks super-neat) But this is prev version (5+10+6 crosses). Was able to finish it within 2.5h (still super-rusty doing last weaves)

    Is that a ZF2? It could be that the number of crosses on the long side will be 16 before going to the sort side again. At least that's the case in a JS10 which has the same hole pattern.

    Just checked some pictures of the ZF2. It's also 14 crosses, but it seems as if only one cross will remain to do for the short side. Still, the pattern should work workout any issues imo.

    Yep, it's ZF2. Did it with 12 kg Ashaway 0.62, just to get those couple of shots before the string is broken)

    With 2 crosses (latest pattern) is the difference, that after last main short goes 2 holes down, instead of 2 up as in the first variant.

    The neat view is preserved)

    nice video, again.

    Can you please explain how you do your knots?
    I can only find the bulky knot as a starting knot.
    It looks quiet similar to the pc knot but its hard to see in the video.

    btw: 12,5 kg is 26,4 lbs, the video states 28,4.;)

    Here's the knot tutorial:


    Actually, it's done identical to the bulky starting knot so you only end up with one single knot to remember.

    And regarding the kg/lbs. (mis)calculation - it's in fact 12,5 kg = 27.5 lbs.
    No idea why I messed up that one, but I'm fairly pleased that you did too!
    I was in a bit of a hurry to finish the comments and I've noticed some other typos too (not telling you where though...). Note to myself (and others): A grumpy baby is not the best company if you want to do things like video editing.

    Your right. It's 27,5
    Stupid smartphone not handling the "," correctly:confused:

    Gonna try that knot. Been using the pc knot but felt it could be more bulky.

    The thing I love most about that knot is that it's not that big and bulky - but it still just doesn't sink into the grommet at all. And it's a lot easier to do than the Toshi/Gudgeon knot I was using previously.

    I learned the Haribito Pro / Around the world pattern from this video made a while ago dedicated by/to this site



    the only mod / variation to this pattern is I leave out the last bottom cross so I have
    - 1 less cross on my stringbed (feels more repulsive, stringbed reacts somehow a bit faster)
    - knots are located left-bottom and right-upper, should be a bit more balanced when comes to strains on the frame.

    One less cross string will not change the repulsion in any meaningful way. It does less than dropping your tension by ~2,5%.

    I did not left the last cross out on purpose but it happened by accident. i have 3 zf2 at that point in time. 1 strung according to the video i posted, and the other 2 strung with 1 less cross as mentioned. somehow the feeling on the stroke is different and reacts a bit faster. i have strung the 3 rackets between 10 to 15 times since and the outcome is still consistent. I dont know how to explain the cause but this is the result. Just try it I would say. The ZF2 frame definitely can handle the stress with 1 less cross even at 13/14kg

    Try dropping your tension then. Compare. There is no explanation beyond placebo why one less cross, outside the sweetspot to boot, would have a significant effect
