    Default Min. string length

    Can someone tell me what is minimum lenght of string needed to string a recket (2 pieces 4 knot)?

    I bought a yonex 500m reel of string and i try to calculate how can I string as many recket as possible. My calculation tell me that for main 440cm and for cross 415cm should be enough to string a recket. Is that rihgt? If thats enough i could string 58 recket with 500m reel.

    I use eagnas crank st-200 machine.

    Hi if you make high tension you got more string left,usualy you need 8.5 to 9 m for one raquet!

    Your question depends a little bit on the string tension, how high you go. The safest way is to measure out 33 feet. If you use higher tension, you can go 32 feet.

    I normally do a one-piece, two-knot at 26/29lbs. and I only need 29-30 feet.

    I second Sir DinkALot. If you want to save string, do 1 piece method. Since YY is ok with starting cross from bottom now.

    Papak didn't mention the racket type. Starting the cross from the bottom makes sense regardless of Yonex's "approval". The T-joint area is the strongest part of the racket frame, while the top of the from is the weakest. It should make sense to start at the bottom, at least to me.

    I guess with Yonex's "approval", more people are "OK" with it.

    What I do is to measure about 8 rackets length for each piece of string, thus 16 rackets for a 2 piece string job. I usually found about 1 racket length of string left after a 25lbs job, so DinkAlot is right for measuring about 32 feets for each racket, and 31 feets should do too but at your own risk.

    For 2 piece stringing I always measure 7.5 racket lengths for the mains & 6.5 racket lengths for the crosses. When you get used to certain rackets you can reduce these amounts a little bit more, but be careful not to reduce too much or you will have insufficient to tie off at the end.

    Thanx for answering my question ppl.
    I strung mostly YY reckets 80% and some Victor reckets. Tenison is max @25lb becouse I strung reckets on club level.
    I could string a recket in 1 piece but i read many topics on this forum that says, that 2 piece stringing is better and faster.

    Better, probably to most likely. Faster, it is definitely not. You have to tie 4 knots instead of 2.

    Personally, my own minimal length (w/o taking too much risk) will be at least 9m. You need a few inches extra here and there to tension the last pieces (main or cross). To further squeeze the extra 0.3m or so, will give me only headaches rather than savings.

    We must not also forget that Yonex specify that 2 piece stringing should be used with all their rackets.
    I believe this can affect the warranty on the racket if rackets are returned due to a problem and are seen to have been strung incorrectly. This is what seems to happen in the UK. Best to cut out the strings first before returning if you do have a problem with the frame etc.

    In US, if you return a racket for warranty w/o string attached, Yonex can avoid your warranty.

    Fair point
    Not sure if that is the case in the UK, but it may well now be !
    I was told this a couple of years ago particularly when the string was tensioned slightly higher than that recommended.

    I suppose you cannot blame them really.

    Please be more specific. Are you asking
    a) min main and cross string length to string a racquet
    b) string length of main and cross string after stringing
    The answer depend on racquet type and model. Also depend on the machine you use. Are you using starting clamp or string extension. Also depend on the tension (not to much).

    Last Year I mostly strung a Yonex (MP, Armortec, NS) racquets and came to this:
    For main I needed 490cm and for crosses 400cm. Stringing tension between 10-13kg.
    So I strung 56 racquets with 500m reel
