For a two piece job how does the around the world technique apply? or do you just finish the mains and you tie off both knots? in addition Yulitle shows a video where the crosses should also be started off from the middle of the racket? just like the mains? Any other differences between one piece and two piece stringing jobs?

And also what are your reccomandations? poly on mains and synthetic gut on crosses? and how much lower should tension be for poly/synthetic gut? thanks.

It doesn't. you just tie off, and the start your crosses at the top.

probably a 50/50 pattern. Two piece.

entirely up to you.

50/50 is a type of stringing with 2 pieces of string.

I believe 50/50 is doing the crosses like the mains where you start from the middle of the racket and work your way outwards.

An around the world pattern is a 1 piece string job and is used for rackets that would have you start the cross string at the bottom. An around the world pattern allows the cross string to start at the top while still keeping it a one piece string job. Some Top pros have poly in the mains and some TOP pros have poly in the cross. Youll have to experiment.

The ATW pattern is a one piece pattern used as Lambsscroll discribed, to start the crosses at the top of the frame where the mains finish at the bottom.

The two piece pattern has four knots as both mains are tied off and the crosses are started at the top to bottom and tied off. Several manufacturers suggest this pattern to guaranty top to bottom cross stringing and to limit stress on key points in a frame.

The 50/50 pattern is an old pattern that was used to limit frame distortion on the older 2 point mounting machines. The pattern kind of dissappeared for awhile until Prince came out with the O port racquets. The 50/50 pattern solves the wobbling problem when trying to string these racquets, so no machine break or boomerang is needed while stringing.

Cheers, TennezSport :cool:

The 50/50 pattern came out about 25 years ago. With the 50/50 pattern you strung you mains with half set on each side. Where ever the ends ended up you ran the string up to the center of the racket and strung the crosses from the center of the racket to the top and bottom.

The two piece 50/50 is different. With this method you tie off the ends of the mains then ststart stringing your crosses as YULitle shows. When you use the 2 piece 50/50 on a O port racket it eliminates the need for any tools and special considerations.
