    Any thoughts on whether a new stringer should string two-piece? Just to make the entire process less of a handful.

    Since just about all my string jobs are hybrids now, I'm forced to string two piece. However, I don't string a lot, maybe once a month, but I've been doing it since August 2005 and I've still never done a one piece job. YMMV.

    And instead of alerting the customer to the problem, went half way around the hoop to tie it off many holes away...

    Since I am that customer, that hole became unblocked. Welcome to CAP grommets

    I think 2 piece is the way to start out. If you mess up the job, you only need to redo half of it when you start over.

    Get twice the practice on knots. A blessing that initially can cause cursing.

    Another valid point.

    Oh that's different. When I did horrible things stringing for myself I just looked at it philosophically as an experiment. But when you commit unspeakable things stringing a friend's racquet, the guilt just wears you down later over time. It's all about morals and ethics.
