Dropped Top String Advice

At the beginning of the month, a LaxAllStars Community member asked for advice to string a dropped top string. He has a Tribe 7 head, which seems to be popular with some face off guys like Greg Gurenlian, and is unsure about which type of dropped top string to use.

I got a new head recently and I needed some advice on how to string it well. I have a tribe 7 sceptre 7 head that I am going to string but need advice on how to do it. I know I most likely will have to have a dropped top string like an Iroquois or Huron but I am unsure as what I would have to do for the pocket. Do you start the pocket as if it were the top of the head even though it is a few inches down or is there some trick to it? I am trying to get a mid pocket that is fairly shifty and has a smooth release but I’m not sure how to approach this as I have never strung a pocket with a dropped topstring.

Thanks for your help
