    I'm new to the string-your-own world, but enjoying it...

    I'm about to cut some string to do a 1-piece job on my Aerogel 200 (95 sq in., 18x20).

    is 38' 6" going to leave me short? or should i play it a little safer and cut 39ft or even 40ft? --also, I think I will use 10'6" for 1/2 the Main. will it work?

    I would go 39' if it were me. You need 20' for the mains and 18' for the crosses according to Klippermate's website so technically you'll be fine. It is the same pattern and string amount for my M-Fil 200's. When I strung one of my M-Fil 200's I like having the bit of extra for my Klippermate.

    It depends on the string type. If its a syn gut or multi, then you can get by with 38ft 6in for a 1 piece. For a poly, you should take 39 or more. If you've got a starting clamp, you can get by with taking 6 or so inches less because you can use it as a jumper.

    For a 1 piece it is listed to use 38' total, and 10' for short side in the USRSA Digest.
    This amount can vary depending on the type of string, as some stretch more than others, and the type of machine you have, as the amount to go to your tension head can vary. The instructions are very good usually, but you will not go wrong to give yourself a little extra your 1st time with the racquet, and keep tract of what you used and you will know what is best the next time around for this racquet, string, and machine combination..
