    Hi TW,

    Do you know if one packet of string (like Prince original synthetic gut) will be enough to do a 125sq racquet. Or will it need 1.5 packs, etc ?

    What's the frame? I can do 118-125 in^2 using SG easily if it is one piece (ATW if needed.) And I have over 2' of string left. It will depend on the pattern. Only time I required more than 40' was the Outer Limits or Edge 135 in^2.

    Graphite 125 H=Hoop, T=Throat
    Range 53-63
    Pattern 14x18
    Start Mains at T
    Mains Skips 7T & 7H
    MTO 5H
    Length Needed 32'
    Short Side 8' 6"
    1st X 7H
    Last X 7T
    XTO 10T
    2 Piece
    M x C 17' x 16'
    1st X 7H
    Last X 7T
    XTO 4H, 10T

    This is what I can find about the Prince Graphite 125. It only requires 32-33'. A 40' pack is plenty. Its a 14x18. Mains tie off at 5H, so this is a natural crosses top down. BTW next time pose the question in the Stringing Machines Forum.

    Thanks very much, although the Graphite 125 is a 16x19, not a 14x18 (that's the midsize).

    I wanted to buy string from TW not string it myself, that's why I posted the question here. Don't think the string machine forum would be the right place.

    SamSung,

    I am pretty sure one set should be fine. I am double checking and will update this thread tomorrow with a confirmation.

    Thanks,
    Brittany, TW

    Samsung,

    Yes, it should fit (might be a little tight compared to other racquets). We however have not tested it ourselves.

    Thanks,
    Brittany, TW
