    Was hoping to record a recent stringing video. Murphy's law strikes again, the moment the camera is rolling, messed up the same way, not once, but twice. Luckily it was caught. Will try to savage the rest of the flow.

    This is just GOLD! Love it!
    And what a relief to see that this happens to others as well. I vividly remember my very first stringing video - I had to start over three times due to various f*ck ups.

    Oh man, exactly the same way twice. The realisation was so recognisable, hand on thigh, deep sigh! Haha, thanks for sharing

    Same! Won't believe how many videos I have to abandon. It's like demo syndrome at work.

    The same thing twice. That's actually quite impressive! Luckily you noticed it early. I had it once when I noticed it too late. Could start all over :mad:

    Ouch.
    There are days the feeling just wasn’t right. And usually it doesnt end up well. Good thing you caught it early before ending with a knot!

    The sigh at the end was just perfect. I absolutely felt that.
    Funny how you can string hundred of rackets in a row without problem but if you dare to put a camera there everything goes wrong. Happens to me all the time.:rolleyes:
