Stringing with more than two lengths of string, quadruple hybrid?
 
Hi there, I was wondering if any of you had any experience with stringing a racquet with more than two lengths of string, not just a standard hybrid but, meaning three or four different types of string are used on the racquet, a quadruple hybrid? Perhaps skip the crosses with one string and then put another string in the skipped holes getting an alternating pattern, i imagine there would be some bulky crossovers on the outside of the frame.

I was thinking of this idea for more an aesthetic reason, i think if would look interesting to have four different colored strings on one frame, but maybe would have some interesting characteristics when done with a mix of strings, one could theoretically do natural gut, kevlar, syn gut, and poly all on one frame, to take the example to the extreme. But more I think this would interesting on an aesthetic level, i think you could make some cool color combos and patterns.

Seems you would just need to make more tie off holes? Is this idea actually feasible, any one tried, before I try and dick around?

I saw this thread about Ivan Lendl with his peculiar stringing pattern,

How is this done? This is not quite what I was thinking of but in the same vein, seems an 8 knot pattern would open up so many possibilities of stringing, at the visual and performance level...

Well there is more than one way to string the racket like Ivan did but if he had 8 knots there were four strings. You should be able to do it with two strings also. One for the black strings using a 50/50 pattern and one for the outer strings using a box pattern.

Thanks Irvine, Could you elaborate more? I've seen the two vids by Yulitle on both the box and 50/50 but not sure how to combine...

The racket you use makes all the different in the world. What racket are you talking about? Also keep in mind this is going to be a non-standard pattern and may not be good for your racket. Could be bad for your racket. And may requires special tools like a starting clamp.
