When should I restring my Tennis Racquet?
According to the United States Racquet Stringers Association (USRSA) the frequency which a tennis racquet should be restrung (obviously for string breakage), is dependent on how many times per week one plays. In other words, if you play tennis once a week you should try to restring your racquet once a year, twice a week, two times annually and so on.
How do I choose the right Tennis String?
The Strings on a tennis racquet are the life of the racquet. However, for most people, racquet strings are just an afterthought. Here are a few guidelines to make your selection a bit easier.
Durable Polyesters and Kevlar’s – the most popular and best for string breakers, consisting of a single polyester fiber with a thin coating. This type of construction is termed “monofilament”.
Multifilament Strings – to bring synthetic strings playability more into line with natural gut, many microfibers are twisted together to a string. Advantage: higher elasticity and better playability. Disadvantage: these strings tend to break once the outer wrap is damaged and are costly.
Synthetic Gut / Nylon – are mostly high-tech products bringing their playability in line with natural gut strings but keeping the advantage of the synthetic materials higher durability, and priced much less then natural gut.
Natural Gut - made from cow intestines. The original and most playable, featuring superb playability and “liveliness” yet very expensive and sensitive to weather.
