    I'm planning on stringing a set of Pro Supex Premier Ace 1.25 on to a Dunlop Muscle Weave 200G 95 (18x20). The tension will be 52 lb. I would normally use the UKRSA ATW pattern on this racquet with a multi, but since this is such a control oriented string I'm wondering if a one piece, throat to head might be a better choice. I've never done throat to head stringing before, but it's Dunlop's recommended pattern for this racquet. Also, please make a recommendation for tension if you think I should go for the T to H pattern. My machine is an Alpha Pioneer DC+.

    Thank you

    I think a two piece is fine, and much simpler in my opinion. I don't think a two piece or one piece will change anything. It's probably best for you to string it a little below mid tension.

    You are looking too much into this!
    If it is strung 1 pc, T-H, or 1 pc atw, or 2 pc H-T, as long as the racquet is strung properly, is what is most important. You have a few ways to string it since Dunlop allows T-H stringing.
    If you are concerned of racquet deformation and tension variances because of that where the racquet flexes stringing top to bottom or the reverse, it is negligable on how the racquet will preform.You will not notice any difference. The amount is insignificant.What is significant is stringing consistantly each time.
    Look at proportional stringing where each different length string has a different tension because longer strings will deflect more. Just how many players do you think have proportional stringing? I'm sure not many. Maybe in theory it makes a difference, but when it comes down to it, its a waste of time and effort.Don't split hairs with this, just string a consistant job and string it 1 or 2 pc. and do not worry about if a 1 pc or 2 pc or top down or bottom up will play different.
    Since the string you are using the Premier Ace 1.25, a relatively stiff poly, I would go down about 10% lower than your multi. string that you are use to and go from there.

    The majority of my string jobs are 2 pc. top down, as I string a # of hybrids, and nat. gut, as I like to string gut as 2 pc for reasons , and Head requires 2 pc for most of their racquets as well,also many pro shops string as 2 pc, as that way different stringers there will be all stringing similar so some consistancy between different stringers that a shop may have.

    I went with the UKRSA ATW pattern. Clamp slippage was difficult at first, but I've never broken a string (started 1985), so I'm not worried about breakage. It took me a long time though. It's a racquet that I don't need to string very often. The string seems nice and low powered, even at 52 lbs. I hope we get some good tennis weather soon (New England).

    Clamp slippage was difficult? Not sure what that means but it does not sound good.

    What I meant was string slippage through the clamps during tensioning. Between the narrow gauge and the slippery surface of the string, I had to tighten my clamps quite a bit.
