Can I re-use the string from a broken racket to another racket?
I recently restrung a racket of mine, after a short time the frame broke but the string is fine. Saving money, I was wondering if I could re use the string from the racquet and transfer it to another racquet? Is this possible?
Impossible, sadly. You/the stringer need enough to string for the racket and enough to reach the machine's tension head so you/they can actually pull it; the extra was cut off after the knots were tied.
If you went from 20 lb to 35, you might have a shout.
I actually think it could be done but I highly don't recommend it. It would probably involve 2 less mains and 2 less crosses and the pattern to do that would probably be really weird. A fresh pack of strings would definitely be the better alternative. I'm sorry that happened to you.
