    For those who string your own rackets, when do you restring them. Couple hours before tournament or practice or the day before?

    does this question apply to home stringers? I prefer to string the day before I have a hitting session, if I can help it. this would have my string's tension settle in for the 24 hours of tension loss.

    Since I hit relatively flat, old school hitter, and use all nat. gut, I usually restring when the string breaks, and it lasts me a long time, as I am not much of a string breaker.

    I like to string the day before as well, tried a few hours before and it is very tight.

    Whenever my cross string breaks. Usually every two weeks per racket. If I have a tourney though, I like tostring ALL of my rackets the night before.
