    Question Stringing Prince Rackets

    Hey, ive noticed the shape of the head of prince rackets (the y joint) recently and im curious if they can be restrung as easily as the normal headshape rackets? i havent got a clue how the stringing process works so forgive me if im just being silly

    Actually, it's easier if u have the string pattern, since it has less # of main and / or cross.

    The list of patterns I have for Prince racquets has quite a few that are 22 main.
    I'm not up on the Prince range, so I don't know if the 22main racquets are old or not. Or if any of the new models are 22mains

    e.g.
    Prince Response is 22main x 23cross
    that looks like a Y shape because it says it needs 19 foot for mains and 17foot for crosses
    same for:
    Prince Thunder Bolt
    Prince Thunder Storm
    Prince Thunder Strike

    All Prince Axis appear to be 18main x 22cross

    Default Prince vs. Other

    wow this thread is old..

    anyways, i just got a prince more+ xl
    comparing the stringing method of a normal oval/iso racket and the prince's v-bottom iso, it's definitely different.

    what threw me off the most was that the prince racket has 3 closely packed grommets in each of the 4* corners.

    also, normal rackets usually (starting from the bottom) have 3 non-interacting pairs of grommets on each side, but the prince racket has 3 on one side, and 2 on the other.

    you know how regular rackets usually have the 7 consecutive grommets that form a cool-looking line? prince has that on the top too. it starts at the 3rd of the 3 closely packed grommets on the side w/ 2 individual pairs on the bottom, but it only goes on for 5 grommets.
    [kinda confusing, huh? ]

    anyways, i'm going to try to devise a layout comparison sometimes within the next week or so.
    hehe, it might take a while..

    so essentially there are 2 extra grommets on each side
    [the middle of the 3 closely packed grommets i mentioned in the above post]
    contributing to a total of 38x2=76 grommets

    prince more+ xl
    38 grommets x 2 sides = 76 grommets

    other [yonex iso 900 long sx]
    36 grommets x 2 sides = 72 grommets

    the extra grommets are really screwing up my trying to figure this out

    also
    62 grommets w/o 2 strings through
    14 grommets w/ 2 strings through

    For the prince Y joint rackets, as long as you have the pattern with u, string it should not take too much time. Just give a few inches extra (if using 2 pieces / 4 knots method) than usual for the main, as it seems taking a bit more string than most other rackets.
