View Full Version : For those of you stringers, when do you string your racket?

For those who string your own rackets, when do you restring them. Couple hours before tournament or practice or the day before?

does this question apply to home stringers? I prefer to string the day before I have a hitting session, if I can help it. this would have my string's tension settle in for the 24 hours of tension loss.

I string my racquet a day before I will play with it.

Since I hit relatively flat, old school hitter, and use all nat. gut, I usually restring when the string breaks, and it lasts me a long time, as I am not much of a string breaker.

I like to string the day before as well, tried a few hours before and it is very tight.

Whenever my cross string breaks. Usually every two weeks per racket. If I have a tourney though, I like tostring ALL of my rackets the night before.

Whenever I break my strings..
I'm far too lazy to get my strings restrung before matches. ><

I've strung my racquet 10min. before a match since I was very busy that day.

whenever i feel the need to use a fresh set...usually every 10 hours of hitting

i like to have a fresh set of string for a match, so i'll string one up the day before. otherwise, i string up a fresh one when i notice the tension loss

i only string when it breaks....

i do it when i feel like with what i feel like, i tend to let it break but i have no issue cutting it out since all it cost me is string cost

i restring my racquet when the strings break, or if i see fraying before a tournament i restring.
