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

yep, just as easy.

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
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
Prince Thunder Bolt
Prince Thunder Storm
Prince Thunder Strike
All Prince Axis appear to be 18main x 22cross

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
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.
