    I think 2 piece or 1 piece can be used in almost any racquet. I just bought 2 biomimetic racquets from TW with the "free" Wilson SG strings. One came strung 2 piece and the other in 1 piece. TW specs indicate 2 piece stringing.

    Yes the Wilson Juice 100 can be strung one piece or two piece.

    Yes any racket can be stung 2 piece as Andy stated because he showed you how to stretch the grommets with an awl. There are some cheaper rackets that were not intended to be strung one piece though. I would not string them as two piece unless the customer knew the consequences.

    Is one piece stringing safer for the frame?

    I think two piece is safer but Wilson allows one piece and I doubt the frame will break because of either method. Also I guess it makes a difference as to what 1 piece pattern you are talking about as there are many.

    I thought the purpose of two-piece stringing is to evenly distribute the tension, i.e., to start from the middle, not just to save you some rope tugging.

    I can't see how it would evenly distribute tension (more so than 1 piece) or save any rope (string) tugging.

    By starting from the middle in steps by two, I was quite explicite in the first post.

    I know how the two piece 50/50 works. How does it evenly distribute tension?

    Obviously, by small steps in both directions.

    Zapvor how many Wilson's have you strung using a 2 piece 50/50 pattern? I would like to see Imago string with a 2 piece 50/50 pattern with his two clamps in the center method.

    You can say that again.

    I would probably use two starting clamps. As for the method it is a little bit ex-centric, rather than just centric. Still, there remain two ends to tie off instead of only one.

    And when I say "evenly distributed tension" I mean the tension exerted on the frame rather than the string tension.

    This came from post 39 of Imado's drawback thread.
