I have two packs of head rip control 16, 1 in black, 1 in white. I also have two racquets.

Is it possible, if I take the string to my pro shop, to have them string black for the mains on both, and white for the crosses? Would there be enough for that?

or...

would I need to have black for the mains on one, then white as the mains on the other?

thanks

Yeah generally you should be able to unless it's like Superoversize racquets lol. Most racquets you can easily do half and half with. Should be no problem at all.

You should have enough but what racquet do you have?

Well, if you use a Weed racket, you're probably going to come up short. What kind of frame do you use?

I use Prince Tour Diablos MP

I guess what I'm asking is, will I have enough to have black for BOTH mains, or would I have to have white mains on one, and black mains on the other?

More than enough. The mains on your racquet only require 18' of string. Crosses need 17'

thank you for the help

which would look better, black mains and white crosses, or vis versa?

[EDIT] Also, which is thinner, 16 gauge string or 16L gauge string?

Black mains FTW. But hey, you could try both

16L is thinner than 16 but thicker than 17

16L is thinner, the L stands for "light" which is like half a gauge. 16L is thinner than 16 but thicker than 17.
