    Default stretching or adding string tension that is already strung on a racquet

    hello fellas. good day. I let my racquet (AT800DF) restrung with bg65 @ 23x24 but it seems like the actual tension is 21x22. my question is, can the string strung on my racquet be stretched to add more tension or i should change it and restrung with higher tension? i want 24x24 or 24x25 for my 4U racquet. if this question already asked by someone... kindly direct me to that link.

    thanks a lot...

    Concur with Distanc3! Just cut and restring. The amount of effort that goes into re-tensioning the used string is not worth it. Remember to pre-stretch the string by 10%.

    just did 30x33 on the mp100 with stretched frame, definitely need to go another lb or two higher next time but it seems decent for my own use

    Did you compare the strung MP 100 frame to an unstrung one?

    It does take some time to re tension a racket but it is not that hard to do if you have the stringing machine....
    Simply make yourself a (fish hook bought at the store) hook that
    is filed down to slip under the string on the outside of frame...
    Tie a piece of string to the other end that will attach to the tensioner and re tension your racket...
    At the end you will have enough string to re-tie the knot...
    To avoid damage to the racket you can use a toothpick to raise the string from the frame so that you can insert the hook...
