View Full Version : Serving Question?????

March 12th, 2005, 07:53 PM
I have always had a proshop serve in my peep and/or replace my center serving. I want to learn how to do this myself. Are there any good sites on the net with how to instructions? The main thing I haven't grasped yet is how to finish up at the end without the seving raveling back out? how do you secure the dead end when finished? :confused: any help is appreciated

Give this link a try.... this is how I do it... at the end (its kinda hard to explain in words) is you make a "loop" then serve a "false" serving going the opposite way of you "real serve".... then lay the end down and hand serve the last 1 1/2 or so.... as you do this you will unwind your false serve... pull tight then I burn the end down....

the pix in the link will be more clear than I ever will typing this out.

Hope this helps....

hey northforker, when you do your center seving start from the top and work towards the bottom cam.

Remember to serve your string in the same direction that the string twists or else your peep may not come back correctly.
