    Four knots = two-piece stringing, it's better for performance.
    Two knots = one-piece stringing, it's just for cosmetic purposes and also to save some time for the stringer.

    Basically, 2 knots = cheap, 4 knots = pro!

    Brand new string will always move. Once string breaks in it will reduce string movement.

    depends on which string you use. Some will break in faster than others but it shouldn't take too long. A few hours should do.

    If you smash a lot then it will be much faster.

    You will notice the string moves because you will see it, very apparent. When I get my fresh NBG95, one of the main moved after about the tenth smash during a game.

    jhirata already answered it already. Not like it needs to be explained. 2 knot is cheap since it is cutting corners to get the same job done and sacraficing performance by doing this without spending time to get the extra two knots.

    One piece for cosmetics... Mickey Mouse.

    Also the shape of the racket would be slightly is different on the one piece compared to two piece if I recall correctly.

    2 knots tends to lose tension faster.....
    where 4 knots hold tension better than 2 knots

    Lol!!! 6 knots is "FAIL", as in it is a "patched" string job, as the stringer broke the string during stringing and instead of getting a new pack of strings to start over, he patches it. Therefore it's another cheap, which is essentially fail!

    Lol!! Yeah, I have literally seen some of these 6 knots too.

    When people asked what's wrong with it, I told them this racket isn't even stringed properly and your stringer doesn't know how to string.

    In cases where they have the same racket as mine and show them mine so they can see what the proper string job should look like.
