    Hey so i just got a stringer and was doing fine untill i had to string my main stick...which specifies one piece strining...i wanted to to a hybrid but i did not know how and what holes to skip since its one piece...any help?
    heres the specs:

    String Pattern:
    16 Mains / 19 Crosses
    Mains skip: 8T,9T,8H
    One Piece
    No shared holes
    String Tension: 52-62 pounds

    You should still be skipping the same holes for two-piece as for one-piece since the ones you skip will be for your hybrid cross string.

    The only thing you'll need to watch out for is the length of the two pieces that you are going to be using, since that will be different from the designated "short side" for one-piece stringing.

    thanks! yeah i kinda figured it was like that...but wasnt sure because when i strung it the first time, the pattern was all wrong.

    turns out i didnt mount the racquet correctly and was off by a hole:oops: took me forever to figure out why but now its all fixed and well :)
    thanks again

    Most manufacturers have downloadable PDFs of string patterns. Here is the one for Head racquets: http://www.head.com/__/?7440.3ea8b7cf.DL

    I think your racquet is on page 12. For future reference.

    The big thing is to figure out where you will tie off. (One will be missing.) If the pattern suggests bottom to top stringing of the cross strings you'll be missing a tie off near the throat. If it's top to bottom, just the opposite.
