tip number 3 in racket stringing consistency

My 10 tips to racket stringing consistency

1. Always mount the racket the same way each time-"buttcap logo facing Up."

2. Install short side mains on the same side of the racket each time. Lets say for example, always install the short side on the right side of the racket. (right side would be looking at the racket straight on, right side.

3. When clamping your strings, always keep the clamps clean, (clean daily with alcohol) and always clamp as close to the frame as possible on all strings, work on doing this consistently. I have seen stringers clamp about 1/2 inch or more and this makes a difference over 20 or 30 pulls, believe me!... simple but useful.

till tomorrow.
