    Default If someone breaks your string, what should you do?

    I didn't know that my racquet string was going to break anytime soon. I let my friend use it for awhile and pop, the string snapped.

    So? Who's responsibility do you think it is?

    i would say that he/she should just buy you a new package of string and then well you would pay for the stringing or do it yourself because i mean its not his/her fault that the string broke. unless you knew it was going to break then i would say that he/she shouldent have to pay anything at all. but if your a really nice guy and dont mind then i guess you could just tell them that its ok and the dont have to do anything...

    If it's been threatening to pop anyway, might as well just send it to the shop for restringing and let it be. If its quite new and unused, it depends on the person who broke it, whether they have the conscience to pay for you. Else, just restring. Strings are rather small matters, hardly a point of contention.

    lately, i borrowed my friends' racket for a game and broke the strings. i thought that it was my responsibility to replace the strings and I did. i don't think there is any other way unless you check the strings beforehand and tell your friend 'hey, your strings are in bad shape'... not practical though.

    mmm. I'd be glad if someone could break my strings. I always need to cut them to replace them. But then it could be a good time to try new strings when it happens.
