    Does it matter if you are going to string it?

    Take your time and untangle the string. Once it is unravelled just allow its coil memory to loosely coil the string. Tangles can happen it you aren't careful when release the string from the band that keeps it coiled.
    Here ishow I handle this. Snip the retainer on the stringset , hold the set in one hand while you carefully pull one end and either feed that end into the mounted frame, or secure it with a clamp so you don't allow it to tangle itself. Once you have all of the string feed out you will have only the tail end of the string in you hand. Now you are ready to install.
    Strings with strong coil memory, such as polys, will then to be more of a problem. It is one of the minor points that makes for a good stringjob. :cool:

    you could still string it...it would have a high chance of breaking where it got bent though

    It's not ruined... if it is bent at a hard, hard angle, it gets "kinked." The kink IS weaker, but for polys, it's generally not as big a deal as if it were a multi or gut. You should be fine.
