    Is there anywhere to look this up for individual racquets? If not, can anyone tell me about what length to use for mains and crosses of an 18x20 98 sq in racquet?

    38-40 feet should be just fine.

    Yes, 21ft for mains and 18-19ft for crosses is usually standard for a 18x20. I have a 4D 300 Tour 18x20, and can get away with just over 20ft on the mains, with my Neos stringer, you may need more for a drop weight or an electric.
