    i'm talking about crosses not the crosses+mains.

    6m is enough for my 100'' head crosses
    will 5m enough for the crosses of the wilson 95''?

    It could just be enough if you start from the knot. I would not bet on it though.

    5 meters should be fine. the firs poster is an idiot lol. string sets come in 12m, sets so why would you need more than half the set for crosses. you should have enough unless you have an oversize with 18x20

    You'll be cutting it very fine. That's what, around 15-16 feet? I usually use measure around 16-17 feet for my Ipex 7.0 MP which is a 16 by 18 in a 98 head. You'll be cutting it very close, and you mostly likely will not have enough to reach the tensioner at the end. Make sure you're prepared with a starting clamp. Also, keep the amount of string you use in that initial knot to an absolutel minimum. It may also be advisable to prestretch the string (it's as much for that extra inch as it is for straightening out the string)
