I've also talked to some professional stringers and all have indicated that restringing natural gut that hasn't been hit with is a waste. The reason the pros do it is because they a) either make too much money and don't care or b) get it free and don't care.
I do appreciate your point though.
At this point, I wish Drakulie would chime in.
Oh no, I did not say that this is a rule of thumb or that most do this. I'm just saying that the comment about pros using strings for a year likely is not true when many restring the same day having not even used the racquet.
