I asked Wilson for the PDF of the official stringing instructions. I two pieced mine. 7 and nine on both the head and throat end are the skip holes. I tied the mains off one main back up the head. If you cut the string at an angle it was pretty easy to push thru. I tied off mains at 8 top. Bottom cross I tied off at 8 bottom. Top cross I tied off at 6 top. I looked on Wilson website and the clash 98 picture there is 1 piece stringing but it shows the main knot at 8 top and cross knot at 8 bottom. So the only one you really have to decide on is the top tie off for the crosses when two piece stringing. I chose 6 top.
