    The StringWeaver is an elegant little tool which makes stringing racquets easier and less damaging to the strings. The StringWeaver attaches to the main strings in a few seconds and with a flip of a lever it pushes half of the main strings down while pulling the other half up. This creates a gap which allows the cross string to easily pass through the mains. By separating the mains in this manner there is almost no friction as the crosses are pulled through, greatly reducing damage to the coating of the strings while also decreasing the chances of misweaving. To string the next cross in the opposite direction one simply flips the lever and the mains reverse positions.

    Beginners learning how to string benefit from the increased string separation and can weave the crosses much faster. Experienced stringers appreciate how the reduction in friction makes it much easier on their fingertips, particularly when stringing with stiff poly or textured strings.

    Independent tests by several professional racquet technicians have shown that the StringWeaver does not affect the tension or the string bed stiffness. The tool does greatly reduce friction and “sticktion” so there is far less chance of notching or burning the strings when pulling the crosses. This is very important, as noted by John Gugel in his post on String Spreaders. Many pros like to use the StringWeaver with expensive natural gut because there is less chance of damage and premature breakage.

    There are three sizes of StringWeavers for high, low, and very low density string patterns. There is also a version made specifically for badminton racquets.

    StringWeavers are available through the website: http://www.StringWeavers.com. There are also videos and links to reviews of this ingenious tool. The StringWeaver is good for your strings and for your fingers.

    Dennis, “stiction” (no k) is a factor most often overlooked both duriing stringing and testing for COF.

    Reducing or eliminating stiction can result in a much more consisent and uniform string bed.
