Restringing mains only: doable?
I know this is terrible practice and I would never do this for a customer but I recently bought a racket with rpm/vs hybrid in it. The strings are almost literally brand new and I can't bring myself to cut them out. Is there anyway that I could restring only the mains so that I can reuse the gut? I know the crosses are anchored to the mains so it's an issue.
The only thought that came to mind is to cut the mains out and to skip the very last cross..
