Default Confusing stringing instructions for Head prestige MP

The instructions say to tighten all crosses in the direction of the throat. What does that mean? Here are the instructions for reference. The confusing part is in the "2. Cross strings" section.

They just mean string the cross strings starting at the head and work towards the throat. Probably a women wrote the directions.

You must not string much, because most stringers know that all Head Tennis racquets are Two Piece only, and are Top (head) to Bottom (throat) crosses.

If the Manufacturer allows One Piece stringing, almost anything goes; i.e. Top Bottom, Throat to Head, and ATW.

Default I think we are saying the same thing, top to bottom.

There is nothing confusing about the instructions, most experienced stringers already know what the instructions are describing. I highly recommend the OP read the USRSA Racquet Stringing Techniques manual.
