I agree with JP. I string a lot of rackets with this combo, and it's universally loved.

Yes. Refer to the Jaycee Method (it's somewhere on this site). I've used it for 2-3 years now and wouldn't string any other way.

Use a starting, or "bulky," knot and be sure to tighten the know before you tension the string so that the knot is not pulled into the grommet.

I put the reel on the floor and pull out three arm spans (plus half way back down to the floor for the mains). I'm six feet tall and this method usually leaves only about 6-9" of wasted string. For...

I'm 6'1" and find that three lengths of string using my full arm span, plus about 2 ft more, that will cover the mains on almost any racket. Three arm spans will do the crosses.
