    Hi,
    I want to string two Blade Team raquets (104sq in, 18x20) with Babolat VS in the mains and Yonex Poly Tour Pro in the crosses.

    I have two sets of strings:
    -one set Babolat VS (12.2m)
    -one set YPTP

    The length of the YPTP will be enough since I use it for the crosses.
    But what about the 12.2 VS for the mains? I want to string two raquets, that means each raquet can get 6.1m.

    I wonder if that is enough for the mains as the Blade Teams have a big raquet head (104sq in) and have 18 mains.
    I do not want to waste this expensive string...

    Will the 6.1m be enough?
    Thanks!

    If you have a starting clamp and you know how to bridge for the last pull, it should work because gut elongates well under tension. If it isn't long enough, at least you will have two really nice cross strings in stock.
