Optimum Tensioning of Cross StringsAlbert Murata
My curiosity inspired this video to find the proof behind why you should hold strings in a straight line when tensioning the crosses.
I strung one racquet six times on two machines, using three different methods. Although this experiment was time-consuming, it was fun finding out the results!

Albert, that’s pretty cool. Thanks for taking the time to do all of that for us.
It would be interesting, as well, to take a single-string tension with a Stringmeter and see what those procedures do to an individual string’s tension. Maybe if I can find the time…
