Agassi had a similar problem when he used Kevlar that only came in 20' lengths and he was experimenting with a 20 main racket. He (his stringer) would string the center 18 mains with Kevlar and use the cross string for his outside mains.
Nice tip, Irvin. I'd go crazy with that long side, but it's a pretty simple solution to maximizing length if you have to split a pack of string for two frames' mains.
