I am not filthy rich and it's not a practice that I would ever do. If I can't afford to replace my stringbed, then I won't use those strings. Honestly, is that half set of gut worth the risk of damaging your frame? I'm not saying it will happen, I'm simply saying that it's far more likely than if you restring the entire racquet as it was meant to be.
