Does anyone know where I can find the new Yonex RQS 11 stringing pattern? Does it require 2 piece or is 1 piece OK?

Most recent Yonex frames are 2 piece from what I've seen. I've not yet seen the RQS 11 so I don't know for sure. You can always do one piece if you use an ATW pattern, but you do need to string the crosses top down.

Taken from the TW Yonex racquet section:

RQS-11
String Pattern:
16 Mains / 18 Crosses
Mains skip: 8T, 8H
Two Piece
No shared holes

If I may ask, what does "ATW" mean with respect to a one-piece stringing pattern? I always string my own racquets, but I don't know that acronym in particular...help! Thanks!

ATW is "Around the World Pattern". I've never used the ATW, but there are several people that post on this board that are far more knowledgable than I am, and can explain it better than I can.

Ah, okay! Thanks! I didn't know it was called "around the world", but I think I've been stringing Yonex racquets one-piece like this for a while. If I'm not mistaken, this is the stringing pattern where you don't string the last mains until the end?

The last 3 strings are last main, 2nd cross (from the top), and last main on the other side. Is this what "around the world" refers to? If not, someone please explain. :D

Yep that's pretty much the gist of it.
