    Or should I just stop playing altogether until I have a new one?

    I say play it till it breaks. Hopefully, you'll have enough money by then. If not, then you stop. Make sense?

    Tell you what, I'll lend you my Mizuno GP-8 for the tryout. It's strung at 24/25lbs., light stiff & head heavy.

    Thanks so much for the kinds gesture ixoye. You're right, play til it breaks. Last night my game felt pretty good even if i was dealing with the lower tension. I guess I'll have it restrung once i start feeling awkward with it. If it breaks, then I'll worry.

    My friend told me I've been worrying too much about the racket that it might affect my game already. And my life as well. I've been unusually anxious recently. Oh well.

    Don't restring it. Restringing it can cause it to break sooner. If it breaks u can bind it.

    Just an update, I was able to successfully get my AT900T strung at 24 x 26 with BG65 a while ago.

    Haven't tried playing but I'm really thankful it survived the stringing process. It was so fortunate that the clamp was exactly on my gash, so the cushioning absorbed the pressure. Had it been a 6-piece stringing machine it would've probably cracked
