Smile Tie-off inconsistencies on Federer's KSix-One 90 Tour

Hi all!

I've always wanted to know why fed's racket's tie-offs are different to the one recommended on wilson's website. Have a look at this pic of Federer's actual stick used in Wimbledon 2007;

Notice the tie offs;

Tie off M's at 8T.
Tie off X's at 9H and 9T

instead of these on wilsons;

Tie off M's at 6T.
Tie off X's at 5H and 11T

My guess is that is leaves less slack between the knots or its just such a different stick that necessitates a different tie-off? Does anybody know?

Either way I'm gonna try to string my PS 6.0 85 with the same tie-off principles. Whats the worst that could happen right?

Thanks ppl!
