Beginning racket stringing tip Q & A for June 21st

Q:  As a beginning racket stringer should I be using a one-piece or a two-piece stringing technique?

A:  It all depends.  A one-piece or two-piece can be used.  If you are creating a hybrid than you will automatically be creating a two-piece string job by default.  Because some rackets when strung end the main strings at the throat, you would need to create a 'around-the-world' string technique in order to use a 'best practices' approach because you always string a racket top-down due to stress considerations.  If you are not comfortable stringing 'around-the-world' , than I would suggest a two-piece approach.  It should be noted that there are advantages and disadvantages to both.  More on this tomorrow...
