You only put them on the sweetspot (8 mains/10 crosses).

For my 16x20 racquet, I put 10 down (crosses) and 8 across (mains) around the sweetspot area only.
It means I put SS beggining from the 6th cross (from the bottom cross) and from the 5th main for 8 mains.

Hope this helps.

This setup enables the mains to snap back and remain straight after every shot. In addition, the slippery quality lasts until the strings break.
