Fresh Restring in Plastic

#1
Hi just wanted to know had a fresh restring done 2 weeks ago got it back in plastic, it is ok to put it back in plastic after each hit, does this help keep tension and keeping the string feeling the crisp and bitey:)

Short answer is NO. Strings will relax once they are tensioned and off the stringing machine. Ball impacts will continue the job of stretching the strings. Polyester strings are really susceptible to this. Other types of strings will stretch, but more slowly. A plastic bag is a nice touch, but most here do not do it because of 'What do you do with a plastic bag later' question.

Does SF require tennis shops to charge for plastic bags? Lol

All retail shops must charge for bags. Does not matter if plastic, paper or cloth. Only exception are bags to carry large amounts of hot food since the carrier could be burned. Purchased $100 of Dim Sum and was not charged for the bags. No charge for restaurant takeout either. SF is not that stupid.

Two things:

The bags can protect your racquets' paint jobs from each other in your racquet bag.

If you have natural gut in a frame, tossing a packet of silica gel in the bag will absorb excess moisture. But maybe too much.
