    If it were a 40 foot set, you could give a foot or two, but if you measured less, you may have a problem, at the end of the crosses. The Long side is the other half of the Mains and all of the Crosses.

    Usually those 8 lengths are long enough, because of stretch, you should have a foot or more cut off. On the short side tie off. Since you are doing a one piece, you could give an extra foot.

    You will have to do the first 2 crosses, pull, and then clamp them to eachother. Make sure to wiggle the crosses when you are pulling 2 at once (and this should be the only time you do) to get the tension as close as possible. Then pull 3rd cross and clamp it to the 2nd.

    He's using a starting knot in the video, hence a two piece job.

    This is good example of getting a Progression II 602 FC and X-6 FC, much easier with fixed clamps. (and we are back on topic) ;)

    Probably because he thought, he could. Worst case, he ties off and does a two piece. He's also a first time stringer.

    Oh right. I've never came around doing a 1 piece. The only time i did it was when a customer asked me to specifically do a 1 piece stringjob which got me scratching my head wondering why he would specifically ask that instead of having just any kind of stringing done on the racquet. Maybe tension maintenance? I don't know. Just never bothered with it.

    You're better off doing a two piece with the machine you have. If you ever upgrade to a Fixed Clamp machine, you will appriciate the Fixed Clamp machine much more.

    No you don't but it depends on what racket you are stringing.
