    I have a pure drive and my son has the aero pro. I usually always string in a two piece string. But I was going to try a one piece. Should I use the around the world because the mains end at the bottom . What does Babolat recommend? Should I just stay with the two piece?

    There have been some posts that Babolat allows bottom up one-piece. I still string them ATW when one-piece.

    I used to string my APDC Bottom up and never had any problem. But now I use ATW mostly for piece of mind...

    Babolat allows one piece but recommends two piece for all their rackets.

    This is really random but is it alright to string a 16x19 with a 17g or 16g? i want to try a 17 but since its a 16x19 wouldnt it be better to use 16g or it doesnt really matter?

    Dang, I'm seeing you ALL OVER the forums this past week! Haha. :p Doesn't matter what gauge of string you put on a racquet. Unless its way to thin to even take the amount of tension being pulled OR if its too thick to fit through the grommets.

    If you are using a multi, 17g will have a shorter lifespan in a open pattern.
    For poly or hybrid, 17g (or even thinner) will be just peachy-keen.:)
