STRINGING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE HEATSEEKER RACQUET ONLY

17ga. string recommended for E-Force racquets. Finished Tension recommended is 28-32lbs (most stringing machines may require a higher reference tension, e.g. 35lbs, to have a finished tension of 28-32lbs). Pattern 14M x16X. Shared holes: 6H, 7H. Start crosses at 6H-L. Tie off M's at 3H-L. Tie off X's at 2T-L.

INSTALLING AND TENSIONING MAINSTRINGS:
Mount to stringing maching with racquet name facing up. 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.

MAIN STRING - SHORT SIDE INSTALLATION:
Step 1: Start main strings at 2H-R (orange hole). Feed 9' of string down through the orange tube in the right side of the handle. Feed up through the orange tube in the left side of the handle. Then feed up through 3 H-L (orange hole). Clamp string at 2H-R (orange hole), pull tension at 3 H-L (orange hole) and clamp.

Step 2: Feed short side of string to 1H-R (red hole), down through right side of handle (red tube), then up left side of handle (red tube) to 4H-L (red hole). Tension string at 4H-L then remove clamp from 3H-L and clamp at 4H-L. Now tie off short side at 3H-L.

MAIN-STRING INSTALLATION:
Step 3: Take the long end of the string from 2H-R (orange hole) and feed through hole 2H-L (yellow hole) down to the yellow tube in the left side of the handle, then feed up yellow tube in right side of handle to hole 3H-R (yellow hole). Pull tension at 3H-R and clamp.

Step 4: Feed strings through 1H-L (green hole) down to the green tube in left side of handle, to green tube in right side of handle and up to 4H-R (green hole). Pull tension and clamp near head.

Step 5: Feed string through 6H-R (blue hole) to the blue tube on right side of handle, to blue tube on left side of handle. Feed up to 6H-L (blue hole). Pull tension and clamp near head.

Step 6: Feed strings through 7H-L (magenta hole) down to magenta tube in left side of handle, to magenta tube in right side of handle. Feed up to 5H-R (magenta hole). Pull tension and clamp near 5H-R.

Step 7: Feed strings through 7H-R (white hole) down to clear tube in right side of handle, to clear tube in left side of handle. Feed up tp 5H-L (white hole). Pull tension and clamp near 5H-L. You are now finished installing the Mains string.

CROSS-STRING INSTALLATION:
Step 8: Start crosses at 6H-L, weaving accross to hole 6H-R, then down to 7H-R and accross to 7H-L.

Step 9: Continue installing cross string conventionally. Finish tie off at throat 2T-L.

APPENDIX:
Strings are numbered per USRSA convention.
H- Head/Hole
T- Throat
L- Left
R- Right
M's- Mainstrings
X's- Cross Strings
Example: 5H-R = 5th Head Right
