View Full Version : having rackets repeatedly strung.

I read Rabbit's input on the Volkl C-10 and his feelings on having his rackets repeatedly strung to bring out the "true" feel for the frame. Then I read Pioline does the samething. Its something to think about.

it depends on what feel you are searching for..racquet fatigue from frequent stringing makes the frame alot more flexible and less powerful/more dead feeling <pick which one of those terms you like better>..if that's what you like, then that's what you should use. personally, after a bunch of restringings, i dont care for the flexy lifeless feel of a fatigued frame...

Thats what I thought, but when I hear a respected member here and a pro who does the samething it makes wonder a bit how do you kbnow a frame is truly fatigued or hitting its stride.

I doubt racket makers make rackets to hit their stride after a bunch of stringings. I doesn't surprise me that some pros like the flexy feeling since they want more control not pop. I think it's all up to personal preference. Try both.
