Thread: Racquet's Durabillity
04-03-2013, 01:24 AM #1
May I be enlightened on the number of times can an original high-end racquet (e.g. YY VTZF) be restrung?
For example, if a racquet does not have any collisions with other racquets, does this mean, the racquet is safe to be restrung for the rest of its design life?
And if a racquet is always strung at about 30lbs, does it reduce the racquet's life span?
I hope this questions can be answered. Thank you so much.

YY does stipulate on their brochures as well as racket the reccomended string tension and these, I believe, could be useful during warranty claims. Personnaly, I've not done it on my YY VTZF or Arc Saber Z but have done so on Apacs Lethal9 and Hart Diamond series - both at 30lbs.
Lethal 9 did not servive a clash during play BUT the frame did not collapse instantly. It was after several stroke that when like "banana" kick in soccer, the shuttle, and a quick look at the frame confirm serious damage. That racket when to the dustbin immediately. For the Hart, so far no clash and still serviving.
Problem is the grommets are cut through pretty quick with high tension especially with thick guage string and also the frequency of changing them even if the strings have not snap.
In short, I would say if the manufacturer claim their product can take 30 lbs tension it usually does, the grommets, clashes, other factors would be your main issue rather than the longevity of the racket, if they were design for.
Hope it helps.
