I have multiple poly and multifillament 40 feet strings.
Would there be a problem to hybrid them in a 93'' inch racquet KBladeTour, with 18x20 string pattern?
This is my first 18x20 racquet. So that is why I ask.

20 feet (half) is enough for mains and crosses aswell? If that is true then that is perfect.
Or do I have to use the string once as mains then the other part of the 40feet as crosses for the 2nd string job?

20' is long enough for either the mains or crosses.

A full job should be around 36,37 feet.

There is a page from racquet sports industry that lists the requirement for each racket, and 40ft was the average... in actual stringing I find that this listing leaves around 3ft for safety too.

yea, a 93" frame isn't much to worry about. if you had a 100+ frame then i would be more concerned.

i'm looking it up on the klipper usa site and got this
K BLADE TOUR 50 - 60 21'M - 19'C 18M X 20C

they got things wrong before for me, but on the short side. so it seems like 21 ft is needed for the mains, it'll be a close call. i would hope someone would respond if they actually have strung this racquet before.

Klipper's generally pretty generous with its measurements. I just got done stringing an Ozone Tour and a Metallix 6. The Ozone called for 21 ft for the mains- I just snipped a 40 in half. The Metallix 6 also called for 21- I ended up using 19 and a bit. If you string carefully, don't waste string, then you'll be fine.
