    Doing two pieces (4 knots) should get what you want.

    Cheers. :)

    yep if you told your stringer to use "one colour for mains and one colour for crosses" then he would be able to do what you want. the reccommended pattern is 2 piece for the nanospeed 9000 (4 knots if you look at the strings.)

    You may have to pay for two sets of strings. Unless you provide your own two sets of strings.

    Just buy two sets of strings, but save the second 'halves' (it's not exactly half but close enough) for the next time you restring. You'll just have to reverse the colors next time to make sure the lengths are right.

    Any stringer, as mentioned a dozen times already, who uses the 4knots method shouldn't mind... it doesn't add any difficulty as long as you're willing to spring for the extra pack of strings. In fact, I find it's actually easier to string in two colors--- easier on the eyes when working late at night because the contrast makes it easier to see (assuming you're not using white on amber or something :p)

    I have 2 nano9kX. Maybe it'll be perfect to string two colour at the same sitting. Never tried before, hehehe.. have always used one colour.

    May try yellow and blue.
