Will my racket break if I continue to play with the string like this?

    Sloppy job. Depends on string tension. Mistakes like too short string can be happen if you learn to string. If you paid for the job, I would return it and look for another stringer. Most stringer who do something like this are not reliable. Their should also only be one tie off at A5 from finishing the cross. Stringers who string YY rackets for clients should use the YY string pattern to keep the warranty.

    This is a pic of the perfect string on Z force,

    My tension is 25lb. I popped the very first horizontal string, so I pull the 2 horizontal string om the right corner and tied a dead knot there, cause I dont have money to restring :(

    Now, my racket tension is lower than 25lb but still tight, u guys think its ok to continue?

    I heard/see pp cut their string right after they pop the string, if not the racket will break right?

    In that case,if it survives,you'll lose it's sweet spot pretty quick due to the uneven string tension.It would be wiser to have it restrung in no time.

    Biggest mistake man. Hurry and cut out the strings. With the strings broken at 1 corner, there will be an uneven tesion at different parts of the string bed. This will cause the frame to bend and the T-Joint to crack.

    IMO repairing stringing jobs is for high end rackets and tension above 24lbs a no go. It's really cheap and only an option if you need the racket immediately (tournaments).

    Good point Kwun. however, I fear this racquet won't last long anyway if the strings are not cut soon. One wouldn't be able to see any damage initially.
