    I am looking to hybrid the racket, generally a packet of string has 40 feet give or take, I have 2 k6.1 tours that I would like to hybrid, I have 1 packet of Blackcode, I would assume I could split it into 2 and hybrid, but I just read that one user had his stringer halve a packet of strings and when stringing he came up short on the mains on a Prince.....(different racket altogether lol) better be safe than sorry, any info would be appreciated, thanks!

    You'll only need 17-18 feet to string a k6.1 tour, so 20 feet should be plenty.

    18 Main patterns tend to use 21 feet or more. 16 Main pattern use less than 20 feet.
