I have never restrung a racquet because I bought my first racquet a while ago. I bought a Prince O3 Hybrid Hornet MP, and I was wondering if I bought a pack (sorry if that is not the correct term) of string that had a string length of 40 feet, if it would be enough to string my racquet. I assume this is a newbie question, but I just don't want to go wrong

40 feet is more than enough for a MP

Yes . . . 40' is enough for 99% of the racquets.

Note . . . Don't think you're smarter than the racquet. Make sure you put the short side on the side marked for the short side and start crosses where it says start crosses.

ok, and them my follow up question would be that I am thinking of stringing the whole racquet with Topspin Concept Pure, any recommendations on the tension I should string it at?

Are you used to a poly ?

To be honest. Not at all. I have only used Prince Lightning XX at 58... But from what I have read Topspin Concept Pure seems like a good string, so I thought I might try it out

I start all poly newbies at the bottom. For the HH MP it's 53.

The tendancy is to string polys too tight and loose and power they might have.

40' is perfectly safe.

Good luck !

I am not trying to dispute your point at all, just learn more, but why string it at the very bottom of the tension range?

I assume you don't have a stringing machine, and will probably have someone string it for you. They will probably know what to do with your string set (pack).

It is a much stiffer string than what you have been using.

Then you don't have to ask questions like this . . .
