How do I tell if I need a restring?
If you find that you are hitting the ball long, or making more unforced errors than usual, it is probably time for a restring. This can have a dramatic impact on your game and how many errors you make.
The tension of the strings in your racquet naturally drop over time. So the more you use your racquet the more tension is lost. A general rule to follow is – If you play 4 times a week then you should re-string a minimum of 4 times per year. Of course this varies depending on the player, surface and string but it’s a good start for most players when considering re-stringing their racquets.
Key Indicators of tension loss
- Loss of control
- Fraying of strings
- Strings moving in frame
- Dead feel/sound in strings
Notching of strings – When you make contact with the ball, your strings rub together and produce friction, which then causes the strings to notch. If you use your fingers to pull the cross string down from where it normally sits, you will see a notch in the string. If this notch is deep then your strings are ready to break.
Strings Moving in Racquet – If you are finding you need to straighten your strings out after every point then this a key indicator of tension loss and your racquet could use a fresh re-string!
Fraying – Natural gut and multifilament strings are composed of lots of tiny interwoven fibres, which have a protective coating applied to them. Once this coating wears off, the fibres will start to fray. This is a completely normal part of the wear and tear process. If the core of the fraying string starts to get visually thinner then you are due for a re-string.
If your strings are showing any of the above signs or if you wish to just get some great advice then please come in and speak to our friendly staff. We have a wide range available to suit every type of player and playing style. We look forward to helping you advance your game.
