    it is important to use a racket that has a better hole pattern. the particular one has traditional shared holes which makes the middle strings too sparse.

    I legit tried this as my old stringer did it for tennis. Couldn't figure out the pattern / how not to result in lopsided or broken bat.

    I used to do this to train my sweet spot hitting, but it always felt way too bouncy. Using tennis strings makes it much more "playable"

    Interesting! More like stringing adventures than horror!

    Although if you watch pros hit, the sweet spot they aim for is 1-2 inches higher than that.

    You might have seen it, but I saw this recently. Could be a good one to try with a cheap racket!

    I did see that (and tried it a while ago) but i found the vertical cross was too easy to hit. It is not nearly as scary for the racket while on the machine though !
