I've seen some pics of roger federer's string savers and the look pretty neat. I was thinking about probably getting some but I have a few questions

1. Do they fall out easily

2. are you allowed to play matches with them on?

3. Does it affect the playability of my racquet/strings in anyway?

4. How great do they increase the life of my strings(Wilson Champion Choice)?

5. And finally, for a string breaker like me, are they worth it?

1. When I used them, they rarely fell out.
2. Yes, they are completely legal.
3. I found that if you put too many on, then they make the stringbed feel awful and it hurts your arm. Also, they prevent the strings from moving fairly well.
4. My strings lasted 2-3x longer than normal with them. I also used Champion's Choice.
5. Yes, just be careful of putting too many on.

Babolat Elastocross. Period.

There is no substitute.
