    Does anyone have a technique to string a racket without it mounted on a stringer, and then mount it to pull tension?

    Never heard of doing this, but you could pre-lace at least the mains off the machine. I think it would be much more difficult to weave the crosses with the frame off the machine.

    I have seen rackets prelaced using one piece

    The reason I ask is that I have seen rackets prelaced with one piece and it went as far as half of the crosses. Just wanted to
    know if there was a technique for this. There were hoops with
    the extra string at certain points so that you can place the string
    in the gripper when mounted.

    You can do it but why? How much time are you going to save? If it were that much more efficient, you'd see the pros doing it.

    I think you'll find that the experienced stringers here are fairly conventional and do most racquets in 15 to 20 minutes without being rushed.

    Also, it would be so easy to misweave if you didn't have any tension on the mains.

    That's something I hadn't thought about. Good point!
