How do you know if your racquet has become dead? What does it feel like?

Imagine playing baseball with a fence pailing rather than an actual baseball bat (or cricket bat if, like me, you're from a Commonwealth country). Instead of feeling the ball 'spring' off the bat it only offers a dull kind of response (soft and more spongey than springy). Still playable but requires more effort to generate power. My Prestige Pro has had so many restrings over the years that the material has become fatigued. Instead of stringing it at 55lbs I string it at 45lbs because its the only way to get the same level of power as I used to achieve.
