    1-piece around-the-world (ATW) top-to-bottom or just 1-piece bottom-to-top? If the latter, it's quite easy. Just look at a picture of the latest Yonex 2-piece bottom-to-top reco., but don't cut the string into 2. You do one side (i.e., the "short side") as pictured. For the other side (i.e., the "long side"), instead of tying off after you do the mains, you start the crosses. Assuming a normal 22-mains racquet with no funky single-pass grommets, with the Yonex pattern you should end at grommet T10 (i.e., throat 10). Bring that to T9 and weave it over to T9 on the other side. If you're one of those people who like an extra cross at the bottom, then bring it to T8 and weave it to T8 on the other side. Just make sure that your racquet allows it, though (i.e., don't try to pass 2 strings through a single-pass grommet) and tie off the short side at T7 or T6.

    ATW is a bit more complicated and there's no one standard way of doing it, I don't think. Some pro stringers I know invent their own patterns and use them as their personal signatures to quickly tell whether or not they've worked on a customer's racquet.

    FWIW. HTH.

    One piece throat-to-head stringing method is indeed easier. Sir Dink is using this method with great success. The trick is not to increase the cross tension by 10% until you finish (at least) the third cross strings.

    Why? Does this also apply to 2-piece?

    Thanks.

    (1) To lesser the chance of breakage I guess .

    (2) Just one piece string job.

    What is the difference..? When I took my racquet for re-stringing, I was asked for one piece or two-piece..? Is two-piece is like using two strings and strung together..?

    OK. I'd imagine, though, that since the throat is the strongest part of a racquet that we may want to lower the tension when we get to the head. What do you think?

    Just curious. Thanks for the info.

    2-piece: 1 for mains, 1 for crosses.
    1-piece: 1 for both mains and crosses.

    IMHO, neither is inherently better than the other. It depends on the stringer's competency and which you'd personally prefer as a player.

    HTH.

    I do that anyway (lower the tension at the head to minimize stress). I do that buy going easy on the tie-off, about 2lbs. less. Piece-of-cake.
