View Full Version : Will HEAD racquets break on 1-piece?

Since the majority of HEAD microgel racquets claim 2-piece stringing, does this mean that 1-piece will break the racquet?

No offence but how many threads do you need to start

Some days I start multiple questions when I have time, and other days I lay off the questions.:-| I'm just trying to know as much as possible to make stringing an easier task; along with practice.

Yeah that is fine but 50 threads in a month is a bit much. Do you agree???

I see your point; well I'll try to lower the questions, although just to point out, it was within that month that I got my stringing machine.

No you won't.

I've seen them strung with one piece.

Just string ATW...it works well with the prestige rackets.

I see. So I guess I will do ATW patterns instead of their recommended 2-piece stringing then, as it seems to be less of a hassle.

Both about the same. 2 piece you handle less string...I would just do it that way. Also depends how much string you have.

I usually string as 2 piece, but atw will allow you to string top down as recommended.I used all the different ATW patterns, but I really prefer to string 2 piece.If you tie a good knot, cinched up nice, and slightly increase tension on last knot tie off string, there is no difference in the 2 techinques, as far as the string job goes.Now I usually string 1 piece when the pattern ends the mains at the top, and an ATW then is not necessary.Nick is correct as you handle less string with 2 piece as well.Just a matter of preference

Also, post as much as you like here! Thats what this forum is for.

I've strung 1 piece on a MG Radical Pro and a 2 piece on a MG Prestige MP. ATW works fine, except its not necessarily easier. You'll have alot of string to pull. I just started stringing as well, I think I prefer 2 piece, less string to pull. Plus if you have a reel, there is added time to cut 2 pieces instead of 1. Except it's kind of tricky without a starting clamp.

I would do two piece form a package, ATW from a reel 36'
