    Hi,
    I got Wilson HyperCarbon 6.1 (95 head size) with 18x20. I need to buy x meters of string but I dont know exactly how much I need to string my main and how much to string cross (I will put hybrid)? 11 meters is enought for whole racquet without many string in garbage, I saw that with my eyes. So how much would I need for someone competant to string my racquet with ease and still dont throw to much left string in garbage (nothing is free, right). How much meters for main and crosses is enought?

    thank you,
    B

    I would recommend 6M for the mains and 5.5M for the crosses. It takes extra string to do a hybrid using two pieces of string. The USRSA digest says to use 19' for the mains and 17.5' for the crosses.
