    Just measure out 10 m which is what is standard length for stringing 1 racket. Once you get more comfortable with the length needed, you can probably measure exactly what is needed (less than 10 m per racket) and squeeze an extra racket or two out of a reel.

    Have fun.

    Just to add, you can probably get a few more rackets out of it too. This is because the string reel is not perfectly cut at 200m, often it's over.

    do following about the length:

    - for the main, cut out string that's 7x the length of the racket + 1x the length of the handle.

    - for the cross, cut out string that's 6x the length of the racket + 1x the length of the racket.

    you should be able to get 22 rackets strung with one 200-m reel.

    Nowadays I use 5 m for the mains and 4.4 m (which is pretty generous) for the crosses, which gives me an extra racket per reel. All depends how tight you are stringing and how much you need for knotting.

    I just always play it safe now. I always use up 10m per racket. 5.5m for the mains and 4.5 for the crosses.

    yup .... that's very safe.

    I'm using 5.3m for main and 4.5m for the cross.

    Ya, I know I can do smaller but I'm just too afraid to come to the end just to realize I don't have enough string to put on the gripper.

    The savings for one racket length is minimal, comes down to cents. if you're pro and string a lot yea, try and save, but if youre an intermediate stringer just go with 10m so you dont run into problems getting to the gripper.

    There are many ways to do it. Personally. I cut 1 piece for mains. string all the mains. Then I start the crosses with my other piece of string. Some cut the string after they have finished the mains. it just goes down to how you learned to do it or how you are use to it.

    If you use 2 individual pieces and also a starting knot for the crosses you can save maximum string. Doing a 1 piece is the least efficient.

    Invest in a starting clamp. incase you come up a little short to pull, you can use starting clamp as an extention for your string. I come up a little short quite often, so I use the starting clamp a lot.
