Hi guys, i just strung my new K95 with VS Team 17 and wonder how should i store my racquet since it's fall up here. Should I be storing it in cool or warm area? Also what's the shelf life for a unopened pack of gut?

Thanks

Store it in the dryer area of the two. New coated natural gut, if not exposed to heat/cold extremes, humidity, and or light should last two years if in a sealed package.

You MUST vacumn seal it in a Ziplock sandwitch bag and put it in a temp controlled room.

do not put it in a garage especially if it really hot where you live. Just try to keep it in a nice cool place.. like inside your house!

I feel that without a doubt the best place to store your natural gut would be at my house.

Indoors is correct, definitely not in the trunk of your car...

Also, avoid anywhere with lots of temperature changes.

Some people keep their racquets in plastic bags (like you see many pros use) to keep moisture out, but make sure you're not locking humidity in with them.
