    do some searches, you will find out.

    2 knots = single pc string
    4 knots = 2 pc string
    3 knots = yet to create...........

    so far, 4 knots is the best

    I have been told that 4 knot method is used for non MP frames as the string needs to be able to move on Muscle Power style frames...???

    Correct me if I am wrong.
    Doesn't yonex stringing methods apply 3 knots? 2 tied off at the bottom and 1 at the top.

    2 or 4 knot depends on the stringer...I only know that the Muscle Power frames are said to use the 2 knots method so as to allow the string bed to move freely...Here in Vietnam we only use the 2 knots method unless we are repairing one section of string..

    Two on one side of the bottom. One on the other bottom side, and one on the top. That's four.

    Muscle power frames have nothing to do with the number of knots. It also does not allow the stringbed to move freely. Muscle power is a sexy word for a different type of grommets, more rounded archways similar to wrapping a string around a round pole instead of a square post. Its benefit is that the string is held more firmly and hence more power and less tension loss. Its disadvantage is its greater bulk and weight which produce more air resistance.
    Using one piece two knots stringing is a very ancient stringing parctice, necessary in the old days when stringing was done by hand with an awl pushed into the grommet/string instead of today's clamping. It (one pc, 2 knots) however produces 3rd rate stringing for today's modern racquet frames, including muscle power frames.

    they must be tennis players because 2 knot does hold tension better in tennis frames , unless u absolutely have to use 4 knots (hybrid tennis string setup) then tennis stringers will use 2 knot method usually, but in badminton it is always best to use 4 knot

    well i have 2 racket that is using 2 knot and one racket using 4 knot

    I like the 4 knot one better because it's new and it's the CAB30M !!!

    But the 2knot racket seem to be running strong after 1 whole year .... i don't get to play much badminton last year and it's stil seem have decent tention in them .

    Recommended string patterns for all Yonex racquets are all 4 knots method

    Yes, these is a 3 knots method. It is just take too much time to tide the end main and starting cross on the same knot and end result is same as the 4 knot method. Also, 2 string through 1 hole is enough, 3 string will be too tight. Don't ask me to show you.

    I have to disagree with you...MP allows the strings to move over a more rounded surface...not to hold the string in place better and you can check the factory for confirmation of this...I have not seen strung rackets in the yonex catalog using 4 knot stringing...but maybe they do...Muscle Power frame is not a type of grommet, it is the raised area between the grommets that make it MP frame...without this raised area the string has to move over a more square rim of the grommet and therefore it does not move as freely as it does over the rounded MP frame....As for 3rd rate 2 knot stringing....this I dont know about for certain...but having used both I see no difference...Stringing is easier using 2 knot method so maybe that is why we use it here??? On average we string 15 rackets a day so it makes a difference in how long it takes to string one racket...Has anyone done any testing to find the real difference (if any) between 2 and 4 knot???
