    Yonex themselves prefer 4-knot, as per their stringing instructions.

    for YY rackets it is best to stick to 4 knot stringing if you value your warrenty.

    Personally, I think sticking to the stringer that you like the work of is more important that 2 or 4 knots.

    welll, the recommended tension is 24lbs - 3u and 25lbs - 4u.

    stringing past that, you lose the yonex warrenty.

    and take a look at this.

    i don't understand how 2 knots save any time at all. having a long string to pull and manage seems to take more time than have to tie 2 more knots.

    Given that you are working on a string cut from a reel and it is about 9m (not 10m as the set), you will not cut the string till tie off on the long side. Then you will save about 45sec to 1 min on the 1 piece.
    Given you got the string from a set or cut 10m from reel, you will actually save time by cutting into long and short string and use 2 pieces.

    where does the time saving come from? by not having to tie two knots?

    how does that compare to having to pull another 4.5 m of string for 11 main string? as well as calculating the length of the long and short segment when starting mains.

    1) Yes.
    2) If you have only 9 m of string, depend on the machine, for example, you can not cut the 9m string into 5 m and tension the main 10 on most of stringing machine. For YY ST250 and Alpha shuttle express, you should be OK with 5 m for main and leave with barely enough for tie off but not for any of multi purpose machine.
    3) Reg calc length for the main, I have the string length marked off in my kitchen so I know exactly the length from my door knob to marker 1 for short and door knob to marker 2 for long. This way, I usually get 22.5 racquets out of 1 reel of 200 m bg65.
