    I got 2 of my racquets strung at same time. Full Prince Beast.

    If I don't use my backup racquet untill my main racquet's strings go dead, will my backup racquet's strings have lost its playabililty if it was never used? I play 3 times a week and my poly stringbead usually last about 3-4 weeks.

    Unless your backup racquet doesn't get used for years, don't worry. But I recommend at least breaking in the strings of your backup racquet-- meaning, just hit with it for 15 minutes or so to let the tension drop a tad bit and reach a good playability level so if you're playing a match, you won't have to worry as much about adjusting.
