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.

Ahaha, now I feel stupid posting this. :L
I guess I'm just really disappointed cause I spent $20 and and a hour of my life stringing for
the frame to break the same night.

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.

What the tension you had there? How many stringing before it breaks? Just for statistics purpose.

I done few rackets this way.
You can recycle string from 2 nodes pattern and use it on a 4 nodes pattern.
