Default One piece stringing set-up?

Hi guys,

I am 1 for 1 on winners on this website. I am hoping for 2 for 2...hahaha. I have questions regarding 1 piece stringing:

1) How can I determine the length required for the short side?

2) Do we want to begin the crosses from bottom to top after stringing the mains?

3) If yes, please confirm that I may be required to begin the mains from either the top or the bottom of the racquet to ensure that I begin the crosses from bottom to top of the racquet.

I plan on practicing my first 1 piece string job soon. Of course, after I play tennis today. Wish me luck.

Thank you.

Default Possible answers


After some additional research, I found the source on this website that explains the required length of the short side as well as comments that crosses should begin from top to bottom. I did discover a follow-on question, I find it odd that people are informing me that during a 1-piece string job racquet mains are completed on one side prior to stringing the mains of the opposite side...I was taught to pull tension evenly on both the right and left side on the main strings to ensure that we do not harm the integrity of the frame. Yet, during a 1-piece string job, we are instructed to pull tension on one side of the mains prior to pulling tension on the opposite side. Am I misinterpreting how a 1-piece string job is accomplished?

Thank you.

I found a very informative video online at:


that explains around the world (ATW) 1-piece stringing. I took notes and I will attempt to string my spare racquet this week using practice string. I think that I will measure the pattern of the short side to determine the exact length I will need to portion for both the short side and the long side. I did notice that tension is pulled equally on the short and long side main strings to ensure that the stringer does not harm the frame. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Also any advice on wooden racquets would be great. Thank you.
