My first real school match in a week. Right now, my RDS002's NXT 16g feels mushy and is starting to fray. I only have a set of X-1 17g and NXT Tour 18g left. Should I restring tomorrow, risking the change in feel or should I keep it?

how long have you had the strings on?
is it completly frayed?
if not just break them naturally and get to the x1s.

sounds like you should restring now so you will be comfortable with it for your upcoming match.

I'd say yes, get it re-done and get used to it before the match. I love the feeling and playability of new strings.

If you have to ask, the answer is always YES!

If the strings are no longer comfortable to play with, physically or mentally, restring. Make sure you hit with the new strings for a little while before your match. You'll get used to them fast enough.

You risk a somewhat tighter feel than NXT, per se, with either of those--and a long break-in period with X-1. Should that bother you?

I would restring with nxt tour 18 at the same tension you did when you first strung your racquet with the nxt 17
