    I just received my first Wilson Prostaff 95 6.0 16x18 to string. The manual shows one piece stringing and I want to use a hybrid. I am confused. I assume the position of the mains never change just because you go from a 1 piece to a two piece. The manual shows me skipping 7,9T-8B and start the C at 7t but it does not work. Need help!

    You're skipping 7 + 9 at the Top of the hoop and 8 at the throat, yes? Tie off the top cross @ 5 and start 1st cross @ 7...weave away and Bob's your uncle! :)

    The original PS 6.0 95 tie off the mains at 6 top. Start cross at 7 top (tie offs at 5 top and 11 bottom.) There is a successor also called PS 6.0 95 which skips 7,9 top and 7,9 bottom; ties off mains at 8 bottom; first cross is 7 top (tie off crosses at 5 top and 12 bottom.)

    Hello Fred:
    Two models of that racquet. Here are both:

    Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 95 (DTB Teal)
    Tension 53-63
    Pattern 16×18
    Start M's T
    Main Skips 7T,9T & 7H,9H
    Len. 1pc 36'
    Short Side 9'8"
    Len. 2pc 19'4"x16'8"
    Tie Off M's 8T
    Start 1pc X 7T
    Last 1pc X 7H
    Tie 1pc X 5H
    Start 2pc X 7H
    Last 2pc X 7T
    Tie 2pc X 5H,12T

    Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 Original MP (95)
    Tension 55-65
    Pattern 16×18
    Start M's T
    Main Skips 8T & 7H,9H
    Len. 1pc 34'
    Short Side 9'
    Len. 2pc 18'x16'
    Tie Off M's 6T
    Start 1pc X 8T
    Last 1pc X 7H
    Tie 1pc X 5H
    Start 2pc X 7H
    Last 2pc X 8T
    Tie 2pc X 5H,11T

    Note: T =throat , H = head of racquet

    Coach Rick is correct that you tie knot at 5H and start X at 7H and thats with either model listed no matter if Bobs your uncle or not.
    Hope this helps. Jim

    That racket is not a fan pattern racket so all the strings should be parallel. If you end up with a main that is not parallel to the other string you either skipped a hole that you should not have skipped or you didn't skip a hole you should have skipped. Also the mains can not get closer together as you go out from the center. When filling in the crosses use all the empty holes there are no shared holes in that racket. The tie off holes are always the larger grommet holes and easy to spot.

    EDIT: Most of the time you can look at the bend in the grommet to see which way the string went when it was strung.

    Rough translation: "There ya go!"

    What Irvin it saying is give your racquet to your fathers brother Robert.
    He will in turn string your racquet and there you have it, Bob's your uncle!
