    What's up? It's 1 piece rather than yonex standard 2 piece but I don't see any issue.

    I saw this photo of the string pattern of the 88s PRO i thin from yonex itself and thats not the way mine looks like so worried it was strung wrong.

    Could you explain 1 pierce rather then two please ?

    Definitely not strung properly. Also look at the nots. They're in the wrong place and there's only 2 on yours. Who strung it?

    Looks like a lot of space from missing top cross, but I strung mine the same due to lack of space around for the 12 o clock support.

    I do not believe that knot placement matters within reason. Happy to be educated if I'm wrong.

    I would definitely be interested to hear if Yonex would refuse warranty for 1 piece stringing.

    Yes, they will. Yonex refuses warranty for a broken wood handle if there's a tiny paint chip somewhere.

    I live in india in a city that doesn't have many stringers , I actually asked a few national players and they said this guy was the best. I went to his shop and he does it old school with an outdated machine I figured he won't do it rite but I said to myself I 'll give him a try because a few people rec him .
    My next question is
    1) will this be fine strung this way ? Or will this hurt my racket or change my game ?
    2) can this be UNstrung and I can use the same string and go to another shop to get it strung ?


    Thanks in advance

    have you actually read the previous answers and why would you hijack the other thread too? Calm down, mate.

    It will not immediately destroy your racket, but you will clearly have issues in case of a warranty issue. Best would be to cut the strings (no, you cannot "unstring" and re-use the strings...) and get it re-done by somebody else. To be on the safe side, maybe bring the stringing instructions with you (see https://www.yonex.com/media/wysiwyg/YNEX0007_AX88SP.jpg).

    Sorry! I tried to delete it but wasn't able to. I didn't mean to hijack it in a bad way. Thank you for the reply
    Just gets Stress when you bought a really nice racket and can't find a stringer who.knows. how to string in your city.
    I gave him a video nd photo and he still did it wrong. He was.old.so I didn't yell at.him might start crying or something worst.

    Nice of you to hand him the instructions. Even more frustrating to see that he obviously didn't even look at them. Let's see...

    1) Number of horizontal strings towards the top is correct now
    2) he added an extra string at the bottom. Doesn't have any negative impact, but as others said, you will run into trouble in case you'll have a warranty issue with Yonex.
    3) it's still a 2-knot pattern instead of the officially recommended 4-knot one. Again, this will not immediately harm the racket but Yonex will refuse a warranty claim if it was strung that way.

    Apart from that, I just hate pretty much everything about this job. Curvy strings all over the place and super ugly knots there. And that ultra-ugly-super-bulky one at the bottom suggests that he started the vertical strings from the side. And that clearly endagers the racket.

    Seriously, look for a different stringer for next time!

    This was the 2nd different stringer in town i used LOL.

    The company i bought the racket from is the official company of yonex in india and strung it rite but they dont so restrings.

    This is what i get for buying a premium racket , and live in a of a town.

    Try sportsuncle when you buy next time, choose the stringing service when you place your order.

    There should most definitely be shops you can find where you can send your racket to for a restring. It's a pain in the ass, I know, but that seems like the only option for you. Or buy a stringer and make money off of it by being the ONLY stringer in town who can string rackets properly. There's no reason why you don't get all the business.
