    Say, from one piece string job that breaks, you still get a long enough segment with little notches?

    Don't, I've tried to harvest strings however they feel dead when I restring them. You might be able to get away with a freshly strung racquet that you strung an hour before breaking it, but then you could only string the mains or the crosses with it.

    Natural gut is the only string I may recycle and it would have to be in pretty good condition. No / little notching and if coated, that must also be in good condition. Nothing else is worth it since the prior use has basically compromised the string's elasticity. And only in my own racquets or if customer requests this in their racquet. No guarantee though on the job.
