Stringing Two Piece on a One Piece Recommended Racquet?
 
New at stringing and just a simple question. Can I string my racquet with a two piece string job even though that my racquet's stringing instructions recommends a one piece?

Yes and no. The reason some rackets state a One Piece only, is because there may not be an extra tie off hole. Though you may have to make one, by enlarging. Many older rackets were designed for One Piece and bottom up stringing.

Would there be a way to tell if a racquet is capable of two piece stringing?

6 tie off holes, of which 4 will be used. A typical One peice only has 4 tie off holes. With the exception of Prince O-Port rackets, where you can only string it one way by design.

How do to know what a tie off hole looks like? If you can essily put two pieces of string, with little or no effort, in a grommet that's probably a tie off hole. Though some Wilson rackets have very large grommet holes.

OPort rackets can actually be strung several ways, depending on how many crosses you want to do with the short side at the top. I've even strung Rebels with ATW patterns.

No problems stringing two piece, when one piece is recommended.

Most racquet mfg. realise that most players now a day play with hybrids.
