    I was in the middle of a lesson when my strings popped on me. Then I took out the strings almost 2 hours later. Will my racket have been deformed? If so, by how much?

    DO you think I would need another racket?

    as long as only one or two strings snapped it should be fine. if all the crosses simultainiously snapped there would be a problem.

    i think the better answer is, it depends on the stick you have
    ive seen babolats with broken main strings after a month, the crosses where still on, of course i cut them out or rather told the owners to do so right then and there,
    softer frame racquets seem to be the most impacted by this, but to be safe cutting strings asap is the way to go, cause once the dent or crack stats to show on the frame, ti just gets worse and worse from that point on
    OP as per you 2 hour issue, should be fine, infact most people are not able to cut strings at the courts, so doign it when they get home is ok i think
    i do carry a nail clipper (wire cutter too big to carry), on my bag for exactly that reason tough, so i can cut a string when this happens,
