    Default Will my strings break if I continue to play with the string like this?

    Hello BC I was wondering if some stringing experts could tell me if this is normal. This is BG 80 on my arcsaber z slash. Basically it looks like the string is bent and is a little worn down/breaking when I received the racquet back from my stringer. Is this normal? Should I still play with it or should I show my stringer so I can ask him to restring it for free and well this time?

    Did I see well or the string is really damaged in the same grommet (T16) both sides of the racket?

    Can't make out what you're referring to as worn in the photo. Can you explain more what your concern is and perhaps provide a better photo?

    On the very last mains if you look inside the grommet the string looks kinda worn down and about to snap.

    My advice: go immediately show it to the stringer and talk to him.
    If more time passes then he might say it is worn because it was used.
    Regarding the 2nd photo, I seems that a awl might be used to open the path or by accident it was bitten by pliers when pulling the tip OR the grommet may be damaged inside.
    If the tension is high (dare say 27lbs or higher) then the racquet may be in risk, that is dangerous area to suffer a tension unbalance if string breaks.
