A stringing tip regarding straightening your strings while installing them in the racket

The quick tip today is about straightening tennis strings. As you start to install the cross strings be sure and straighten the strings as you string the crosses. This is importance to keep in mind because if the strings are not straight when they are clamped, you could be loosing some tension in each cross string you pull. Pull each string straight prior to clamping and during the pulling of the string (when using a constant pull machine). By following this tip you will not only have less tension loss but also will find less work for you after the racket is strung.

Cheers
Patrick
