    hi its going to be my first time stringing my Head youtek ig instinct mp and it has shared holes like this (on the picture) it suggests two piece stringing which i will do. Do i string it the same way normally or do i need to do something different?

    String Pattern:
    16 Mains / 19 Crosses
    Mains skip: None
    Two Pieces
    Shared Holes: 7T, 8T, 7H, 8H

    String as usual.
    No fancy techniques are needed.
    Just watch for misweaves.

    One thing you do need To watch for especially on the string that goes from 7-8h and 8-7t. At the head if you come out of the hole with the string above the main make sure you go in the next hole with the string above the main. If not you will end up with a crossover on the outside of the racket. Won't really matter but it does not look professional.

    the instincts have pretty distinct shared holes-1 for up 1 for down. if you look at it from the side you can adjust accordingly

    And it tells you where you tie off your crosses and mains. Not as difficult as it seems. May be overwhelming for the 1st time, but you'll get the hang of it.
