Some questions that I get asked often about racket stringing!
Q: Can I use my own string?
A: yes no problem, the cost if you supply the string is £10 per restring
Q: Will you replace just the broken string?
A: No this will not be done by any professional stringer, once a string breaks the whole string bed has relaxed and has to be replaced with a full restring at the correct tension or your racket frame integrity will suffer.
Q:What happens if I don't like the string?
A: I will work with you before I restring a racket to get the best combination possible within your price range, I will always try to match your style with the right string combination for you.
Q: How long should my strings last?
A: For tennis:It all depends on your style of play and the string type you select, but the question you should ask is " How long will the string stay in it's playing tension range?" and the answer to that is in Playing hours:
1. Polyester based string is really good for ten (10) hours. Add two (2) hours to this if you are using a non-polyester in a hybrid configuration.
2.. Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) , Zyex string is good for thirty (30) hours.
3. Nylon based strings are good for thirty (30) hours.
4. Natural gut strings are good for thirty-five (35) hours.
