A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words!
In this particular instance, a few words are required to make the picture make more sense.
Thanks to Australian stringer Ashley Nugent, for asking, is the picture in the post “Is Your Racquet Healthy” accurate in terms of failure?
It is highly unlikely that a main and cross string will break at the same time in the same location.
The image was taken a couple of years ago and had to do with “elongation” not the failure and, I grabbed it to show what I mean by “obvious” in the subject post.
I am pretty sure the cross string in the picture was “cut” to illustrate the difference in elongation not string failure.
Thank you, Ashley!
