Cutting Strings after Pop?
Hi i need a quick answer fast...my string broke and my friend is saying that if I dont cut all the strings out fast my racket may start breaking. Is this true? Im a begginer and dont know. When you restring do you restring the WHOLE racquet?

yes cut it asap if u break ur string during a game.
there is a possibility that the frame might be twisted/deformed or whatever
just cut it to be safe.

and yes u do restring the whole racquet.

you can also patch it, which means replacing just that 1 string but i think thats stupid

Hi, Your racket is not likely to break but it might deform the shape of your racket. i always carry a pair of cutters with me.

I second what LB said. 1 additional point. If a racquet is strung at recommended tension, it is not going to break if you don't cut it right away. You can wait till you get beck home or the next day to cut it. IMHO, if a racquet deform from just 1 string break, it is going to die very soon anyway.
If you think restringing cost too much, you should consider getting a cheap stringing machine to save you money in the long run and maybe make some money by stringing for your friends or other people.

If one does not have the chance to practice, or not patient enough during the progress, s/he will end up with a poor quality job or even break the racket.
So, think twice before purchase a string machine. It takes time and effort to make it a positive impact.

lol this may sound stupid but uh...how would i start cutting away my strings? do i just cut and hack away and pull out the string until the racket is stringless? where can i start?

I start a cut from one of the bottome corners with a large pair of 'good' scissors and cut diaganolly across to the top opposite diaganal corner.
The reason: going from top to bottom will cut all your cross strings and not the mains.......vice versa with cutting from left to right.
Cutting diagonal across the strings cuts them all in 1 or 2 quick cuts.
Am I doing this wrong? I never use tensions over 24lbs and never had a racket break or deform from cutting them like this.

I hope a restringer makes a post to say whether it is ok or not..........It hasn't cause any breakages of rackets for me in 15 years stringing from 20-24lbs so...........I just kept doing it that way.
Where's Taneepak when you need him, lol

Oh yeah don't run whilst holding scissors either.

Well if you cut them you should see the shape of your racket change from the total loss of tension back into its original shape, rackets are sold like this most places so it must be ok, but in the place i get mine restrung the majority of the rackets are still strung with the breakage in the string they do not cut the strings off until they come to restring it.
