    Default 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.

    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.

    Patch works in old days, as the tension was lower than now days. With 23+lb or so, it's dangerous to leave string un-cut.

    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.

    I am not sure if we should support the idea or not. Yes, if a person is dedicated to learn the skill, and get enough practice under belt, getting own string machine should be a saving in a long run.

    However, I don't want to create an impression that, "everyone can do it in 2 min". It requires some skill, time and practice to get a decent job done. 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.

    Dontn't know if this is the best way, but i do it.

    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.

    Yeah, it cuts mains and cross in one quick 'snip snip' hehe lol

    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

    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.
