Strings come in many different shapes and styles these days! Different colors, different materials, different feels all affect the way that the ball reacts. Some strings are great for players who break strings frequently. Some are great for players looking for a little more feel with each shot. Strings can even help dampen the shock that can give players tennis elbow!

A few things to know about restringing your racquet:

You should re-string your racquet as many times a year as you play in a week, however, we recommend at a minimum that you restring at least once every six months.

Strings can lose their tension if they are sitting in hot areas like a garage in the summer. Try to keep your racquets in temperature controlled environments to keep them from losing tension quickly.

Make sure that the strings you use suit your game! If you break strings frequently, you may want to consider using some kind of polyester based string to help prolong the life of your strings. If you only break strings occasionally, you may want to try a hybrid of polyester strings in the mains and a synthetic gut in the crosses to help maintain some feel. There are even shaped strings out today that help produce extra topspin on the ball when you hit!

If you break strings and you can't drop off your racquet right away, it's a good idea to at least clip the strings so that there is no extra tension on the racquet head. Leaving a racquet with one string broken while others pull on the frame can lead to warping and eventually lead to cracking later on down the road.
