Prince Bandit 105 stringing pattern?

Asked to string a Prince Bandit 105 but cannot find stringing instructions online. I don't have racket in hand yet so it may have instructions on the racket. Online I can only find instructions for Bandit 95 or 110. Thanks in advance.

Interesting, the USRSA lists 4 Prince Bandit frames but not a 105--But they list a "Thunder Bandit" (which seems to be a 105 based on other searches). For what it is worth, all of those 4 frames have the same basic pattern--16x18 (mains skip 7T,9T, 7H, 9H) - no shared holes but different tie off holes--you may have to make your best judgement. FWIW, The Thunder Bandit's tie off holes are Mains at 8T and Crosses at 5H and 9T--looks like you should do 2-piece. Also, here's a link to a picture of what may be that frame and it appears to be strung as I described: https://www.google.com/search?q=prince+bandit+105&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj2ooWDnLnhAhVxUd8KHcK8AmsQ_AUIECgD&biw=1745&bih=881#imgrc=C2lL03GHgQWxOM Good luck.

I just got the racket in hand and it is strung exactly according to the pattern you suggested. It is 16 x 19 is the only difference. Two piece. Any suggestions on length of string to use on mains v. crosses? I never trust my judgment without stringing instructions.

I would string it as an ATW pattern string 36’ with 8.75’ ss. Tie off the short side on the short side.

I would string it 2 pc. 19 x 17 should be plenty even with poly.

Edit: Actually, what I should have said is that I have strung 3 of them and I did them 2 pc.

Good plan if you use a starting knot for the top cross and have a starting clamp for the bottom cross just in case. If I was stringing with poly I would still use 36’ with a 9’ 6” short side (don’t start with 2 pieces.) What you cut off the long side will be around 18’ and more than enough for the crosses.

EDIT: Of course if you’re using a 40’ set all this is a moot point.
