If I would string the mains every other hole, how likely is my racquet to crack?
Is the chance this is gonna happen realistic or is there nothing I have to worry about?

I have done it with a HPS 6.1, but I also only did every other hole on the crosses as well. I also only did it at 50lbs. I can say that it did not work as a setup. While there was massive spin produced it was almost impossible to control and a normal topspin shot often hit the fence.

djones, if you do this and install the crosses in the normal way, the racquet head is going to be distorted. The pressure will be much greater across the racquet face than it is from head to throat. It may very well crack at the shoulders at the top of the frame.
