I love poly/synthetic guts hybrid and the next time I purchase a new racquet I want to be sure that I can put hybrid on it. Do I have to worry about not able to put hybrid on a certain kind of racquet because of the string pattern or what not? Thanks.

Not that I am aware of. Never seen a creature that couldn't be strung as a hybrid.

Some older racquets will only have two tie-off grommets, though. In such a case, one would need to enlarge two grommets to be able to fit the extra two knots two-piece jobs require.

Pure Controls are supposed to be one piece stringing. No tie off for a starting knot at the top of a frame, after you tie off the mains. I've strung it with infinity before, but was a pain in the rear.

Bryan brings up a good point. There are indeed many racquets that are not constructed to be strung with two pieces. You may need to stretch out the tie off grommets with an awl before stringing. An experienced stringer will know how and when this type of action is necessary.
