    hey

    this might be an elementary question, but i'm getting a wilson ksix-one team soon and i want to string it with luxilon power rough strings... would one pack suffice to string the entire racquet?

    would it be a good idea if there's lots leftover to use different strings for the mains and crosses?

    1 Pack = 40 feet.
    Mains usually take 20 ft, crosses usually 18. So with 1 pack, you could string just the mains and use a different string in the crosses, or do a full job. I would advise doing a hybrid if you have never used this type of string before (poly).

    Of course, one pack can string almost every racquet...

    Thats alright, the only stupid question is one that is not asked.
