View Full Version : Life of strings when open

I recently got my rackets strung and I had 2 half sets left. (It was a hybrid)
But he ripped open the case so the strings are still exposed to the enviroment in my house. How long before they go bad or will they be fine?

What kind of string are you talking about? Syn or gut?

If it is a synthetic type string, no problem. I have some reels af string thats 40 years old and still playable, and was kept in the cardboad box that they were sent in was all, and not sealed. Just keep in moderate temp. environment.

Stick em in ziplock bags for your mental health.

Your strings are fine. I have reels of Statite and Vantage. Rarely use them, but sometimes I'll string up a wood racket with them.
