    Pfffttt… retooling my *ss. Those are CNC controlled drills that just need the right coordinates and angles in the drilling program to make them staggered. Not sure if some manufacturers are afraid that the asymmetrical holes will have a negative effect on the frame stability. Else I just cannot understand why non-staggered holes are still so common, even on highend rackets.

    Nice video, thanks for sharing! I'm jealous of your T20: it allows you to tension the first 2 mains without interaction between the stem and the gripper, it's not the case on my S70 :/
    I'm a lot more careful when I put the string in the gripper and move the "jaws" for fear of marking the string (especially the thin ones). Haven't you got any problem with that? (I may be too precautious and lose some time then!).
    Which knot do you use?

    PS : I'm using a flying clamp too to pull my knots.

    I use the Parnell knot and with an extra loop as starting knot.

    My gripper (on the tensioning arm), is not sharp, I can use it pretty fast without worries.

    The clamps can nick the string when releasing, but that's why I try to release the base before the clamp, so it doesn't scrape the string on the way down. I don't always remember, but I try.

    I'm afraid that will be too sharp

    You just have to give this knot a try:


    As easy to do as a Parnell and just slightly bigger, but doesn't sink into the grommet. Like, at all. I use it for both tie-off and starter for a while now and literally never had a single issue with snapped anchor strings or stripped outer layers. Afaik it's called "bulky knot", but if you look at the size of it, that name could hardly be any more misleading.

    Since I use this so simple not so bulky knot, for every knot, my 'brain" is so happy (in french we say "se faire des noeuds au cerveau", literally "to make yourself knots to the brain") and no issue and the knot looks good too.

    Like thyrif, I also have coasters underneath, they add around 15 cm of height (yes, they're pretty big, I used to have smaller ones because the bigger ones were not available), leaving the top (of the shelve) at 91.5 cm. Leaving the grommets between 118 and 119 cm. For me, that's pretty much the perfect height, at least close enough that (not) wearing slippers and even thick socks make more of a difference than trying to adjust it more precisely.

    And @thyrif, nice video! Thanks for sharing. Also, I use a flying clamp to pull knots as well, it doesn't seem to be that uncommon.

    How tall are you ? I'm planning to adjust my table at the right height.

    That's also up to personal preference. With slippers, the racket is exactly at the middle of the elbow, without, it's 1ish cm above. I'm 183 cm.

    So here at 2:50 they're also using the stringmover as I am on shared grommets, so I'm pretty sure it's fine and won't damage the racket. It's easy and fast, if you apply the right amount of force. I use my fingers for it.

    Incorporated this in my routine now, I think it's a nice improvement. Thanks for the tip!

    Perhaps I have found the good height for me and my back : 112 cm, height of the racket, I am 170 cm.
