STRINGING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE FOLLOWING RACQUETS - Radium, Tyranny.
INSTALLING AND TENSIONING MAINSTRINGS:
Mount to Stringing Machine with color coded hole numbers up. The "Short Side" will be to the right side of the frame.
String pattern is numbered, diagramed, and color-coded at head. Colored tubes in throat coincide with colored holes and diagram at head. Do not cut strings until the mains are tied off.
Step 1: Start main strings 1 H-L left. Feed 7'8" down through the green tube in the left of the handle and clamp near the head (this will be used as a starting clamp). Feed up through the bottom right hole in the handle (green tube). Feed up through 4H-R. Pull tension and clamp near end.
Step 2: Finish short side by feeding down through 5H-R to 1T-R. Pull tension and clamp near 1T-R. Feed up through 2T-R to 6H-R. Pull tension and clamp near head. Feed down through 8H-R (Skip 7H-R) to 3T-R. Pull tension and clamp near 3T-R. Tie off at 2T-R. CAUTION: If using 38" of string, be sure not to have more than 1' excess. If more than 1', pull excess string back thru to 1HL and re-tension per step 1.
Step 3: Continue mains by feeding the long end of the string down through 3H-R (Yellow Hole) to the yellow tube on right side of handle. Feed up through the left side of the handle (yellow tube) to 2H-L (Yellow Hole). Pull tension and clamp near head.
Step 4: Feed down through 2H-R (Orange Hole) to the orange tube on right side of handle. Then feed up left side of handle (Orange Tube) to 3H-L (Orange Hole). Pull tension and clamp near head.
Step 5: Feed down through 1H-R to the red tube on the right side of handle. Feed up through the left side of the handle (Red Tube) to 4H-L (Red Hole). Pull tension and clamp near head.
Step 6: Finish mains by feeding down through 5H-L to 1T-L. Pull tension and clamp near 1T-L. Feed up through 2T-L to 6H-L. Pull tension and clamp near head. Feed down through 8H-L (Skip 7H-L) to 3T-L. Pull tension and clamp near 3T-L tie off at 2T-L This finishes the mains. use remaining string for crosses.
INSTALLING AND TENSIONING CROSS-STRINGS:
Step 7: Start crosses at 4T-R. Weave (over first main) across to 4 T-L and pull approximately 6" of string to tie off. Then take long end of string (at 4T-R) and weave through 5T-R to 5T-L. use the short end (4T-L) and tie off at 5T-L before tensioning (the knot will be used as a starting clamp). Tension at 5T-L and clamp near 5T-L. This will tension the two bottom crosses.
Step 8: Continue weaving crosses normally. To tie down ends of bumper guard, from 8X-R up to 6X-R weave across to 6X-L and down to 7X-L and weave across to 7X-R. Then up to 5X-R and continue normally. Last cross at 6H-R to 6H-L. #6H, #8H are shared holes. Tie off at 4H-L
Strings are numbered per USRSA convention.
