    Hey guys i have two quick questions about stringing.

    1. Is two piece stringing the exact same as one piece except you have 20 feet of each string that you want and that both sides have to be even? (on one peice is 30 feet 10 feet)?

    2. Sometimes i am not able to place the string in between a hole that i skipped is this normal? and what am i supposed to do?

    for the second item make sure you cut the string into a pointed tip then use needle nose pliers to "push" the string through the hole.

    Yes 2 piece stringing is just like one piece stringing. except there will be 4 knots at the end.

    What the heck else are you going to do with a blocked hole. Of course you need to find someway to get the string in the hole. cut the end of your string sharp and get it through the hole.

    Next time look up videos and information about 2 piece stringing before you start and entire thread david

    Yes, it is normal to not be able to put string through a skipped hole.

    This is the best way to get string through blocked grommets.

    Not all rackets require 20 feet mains, 20 feet crosses. Some rackets (especially those with an 18x19 or 18x20 pattern) require at least 21 feet, so be careful or you will come up short. Another tip is when buying a packaged set of tennis string, be sure to measure out the amount you need instead of just cutting the set in half. Some companies only give you 39 feet. I would say 19 feet for crosses is sufficient for any string pattern with a head smaller than 107 sq inches.
