Best Starting Knots
 
Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks in advance.

None, though the bulky the better. I don't like to use starting knots, because it's an old skool practice for wooden rackets and it sometimes pushes the grommet out.

Don't most current rackets have to be done by 2 piece?

if a starting knot is done correctly, you can get one of the loops to wrap around the grommet snug against the frame so it doesn't push the grommet out or deform/smush the grommet.

Only if the manufacturer specifies it. If they allow a one piece, and I'm not doing a hybrid, I'll string it one piece even if it's bottom up.

Starting clamp > starting knot

IMO

I don't understand?
If the manufacturer of a certain racket has instructions saying two-piece.
How do you know if they allow it?

Head rackets primarily is a Two Piece only on all of their tennis rackets. Babolat and Wilson, allow a one piece, even if it's bottom up crosses. More or less you have to look up the manufacturer's Stringing Instructions, not necessarily Klippermate's. If it says one piece, and the mains end up at the bottom it's allowed. Most of the time they will state if it's Two Piece only. Though an ATW is an option for the stringers that absolutely have to string crosses top down.

Thanks Laker4:)

It's nice to keep things simple when starting out.
There is no reason not to string Wilsons and Babolats bottom up, at first.
Prestrung Wilsons are factory strung that way.
