I got a new group of demos in yesterday and the strings in one of the racquets looks very close to breaking.

I started thinking and over the past 3 years I've probably had over 20 sets of demos (including playtest review racquets) from Tennis-Warehouse and have never had a string break in any of the racquets.

Just wondering if you have ever had a string break in a T-W demo racquet?

Yes i've had it happen a couple of times but the strings were fairly frayed and should have been replaced before the demo left the store IMHO.

whoops - I answered yes, more than once, before reading the 1st post that went along with the poll. When in fact, I've never demoed a racquet from TW - sorry.

never broken strings on a demo, and rarely break strings at all. i like to restring way to often to give myself a chance to break any.

I've demoed quite a few rackets and i have never had a string break on any of them. What happens if you break a string, would you have to pay for it?

Just got one yesterday with a Prince Speedport Black, and I might break string again if it has similar SW.

I demoed 4 racquets including PS 85, and the PS's strings broke on me right after I served with it. They sent me a replacement prostaff, and after the 4th day, it broke on me again. I guess its true that prostaff racquets are string breakers ;)

Don't guess me wrong, I likes the SW. It feels good to swing it.
It just the right combination of the flex, static weight, SW and my arm swing speed for breaking string.

Well, it took all of 4 games for me to snap the string in one of my demos. Funny thing was, it wasn't the demo that had the strings that looked so bad (Pure Storm '07), it was another one (LM Radical MP) and the strings didn't look too bad in it. They broke in four places all on one backhand down the line.

It has never happened, but I usually re-string them to my specification and then replace that with some cheap string before I return the demos.
