    I was wonder should you used your racket right after stringing or wait for a few days? Or does it even matter?

    I normally leave the freshly strung racket rest for a couple of hours before play, but I don't think it really matters at all.

    I usually let my newly strung racquet to "rest" overnight before play.

    I tried playing using freshly strung racquets before, however for me, it often ended up as "freshly broken" strings. :(

    doesnt matter, you can directly use it.

    because strings grow stronger with time?

    If my racquets have strings in them, I use them, no matter how soon since they have been strung.
    If they don't feel right, I will put them back in my bag and grab a different one.

    No. I guess during the stringing process there were uneven tensions across different strings. Leaving the racquet overnight will help to let the strings "even out". Just my two cents:)

    My own stringing experiences tells me that rackets should be left for at least 30min - 60min to let the string tension kick in. There is a notable tension gained. And also personal experience tells me that using the racket on the very day you got strung has a higher chance of breakage.

    i usually let the racket "settle" for a couple hours, or even overnight before i start playing it. Ive had a couple string break on me in the evening when i strung it at lunch, so if possible give the racket time to settle and flex to the new tension.
