YMMV. Sometimes the manufacturers are generous with string lengths and you can do it with 20'. Other times, they are right on in order to have enough to tie off. You could also string the mains without applying tension to see how much slack you have left. Just keep in mind that 'stretchy' strings will elongate by 3-5% depending on tension and gauge. HTH.
