So I have two 15ft sets of enduro pro, do you think I can some how do a two piece on the mains of a mfil 300? If so, how?

Will use syn gut in the crosses. 6 knot string job?

I wouldn't. The 300 can get messy at the shoulders with potential cross-overs...more tie-offs would complicate this further. Not to mention the stress on the frame from starting a second piece on the mains.

Save the string for something with a small headsize...you may be able to make it work with 15ft, depending on the stick.

Not worth the headache. You will need to enlarge a couple grommets half way down the frame. It is just not worth the hassle.

Use them in the Weed Whacker.

An MFil 300 will need at least 18' for the mains in a 2 piece ... and with 18' you will need to use a starting clamp as a jumper.

In these cases, my cutters come out immediately so that I won't see those 15' sets ever again ... no use thinking about it.

Not worth it. Save them for patches or tension tester.

Patches? Patches? You mean like in the ancient days when folks would replace a single string when it broke. I don't think you'll find many stringers here who recommend that.

You could save it to use as the cross string in an Multi / poly hy-bird, if you have someone who wants to try it.
The extra length of Multi< reel any one>handles all the mains plus three to four of the crosses. I have a player who likes this set up since he often mis-hits high in the racket face and wants the all the softness of a multi at the tip.
Of course if you are a string breaker, this won't work.
