    I just bought a few sets of PSGO and they were older strings from late 80s and they are 37 feet long. My question is I need 20 feet for main and 18 feet for crosses on my Aerogel 200 so are they going to be too short?

    if those are the recommended values you should be ok with 6 inches less for both mains and crosses. also, stringing 1 piece uses less string.

    the synthetic gut will stretch during tensioning, so you should be okay.
