    Regarding my post to the Gamma x-2 thread, for my wife's old Head Pure Competition racquet I found this at

    Racquet Name Tension Length Pattern Skip M Holes Tie Off M Start C Tie Off C

    PURE COMPETITION & XL 50 - 62 20'M - 19'C 18M X 19C 9T - 8,10B 8T 9T 7T - 6B

    And this at the top of page:

    M = Main String
    C = Cross String
    T = Top of Frame
    B = Bottom of Frame
    S = Short Side Main
    String Measurement
    Used For One Piece Stringing

    Is this all I need to string the Head Pure Competition? Can anyone help decipher this? since there is no S listed for string length I assume I string this in two pieces. This will be the first racquet I have ever strung, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, if no S (short side) measurement is given, you can do two piece stringing.
    Add at least one foot to the string lengths given. If you come out short, you've wasted all your work and string. The "skip main holes" refers to holes you skip over when stringing the mains. These holes will be used for crosses later. 9T means the ninth hole counting from the middle of the top to either side. 8B refers to the eighth hole counting from the bottom of the racquet in either direction. The "mains" are the strings that run up and down, the "crosses" run back and forth. I hope this helps you a little.
