Well, the snow will be a flyin' in a few weeks, and then tennis season for me is just about over her in Minnesota. I've gotten in some great tennis this year, and have really improved a lot he past few years since picking up the sport. Last winter, during the offseason, I practiced bsement wall, and I found it to be actually benifical. I plan to do the same this year. Obviously, doing this is not the same, or as vigorous as actual court play, so I was wondering if I needed to restring. I havent restrung since getting my racket in June. (It's a Wilson Hyperhammer 6.3) Furthermore, I've played many, many hours (Over 100) and have noticed a lack of spring. Should I restring now, or wait? Are old strings bad in a racket? Thanks! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

i just wait till they snap...u should too...but ofcourse if u wanted to get that extra spring/feel? u said that seems to be missing , u'll need a re -string...

if u like a "spring" & want EASY power just get a looser tension thanwhat it currently is at...

i use atp duralast and all the other high endurance strings cos mine dont last long at all sometimes , and some other times like my current re string never seem to break!..<br /> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Well i don't like that spring feel, I think I'll try to play thru winter this time, at least once a week..<br />I hate restringing, and I don't have to do it much, because I normally break my racquets before they have to be restrung, LOL.. Broke 6 this year. But now I am playing with a couple of S5s, which I bought manufacturer prestrung, so I don't even know what the original tension was.. ( well, not true, one of those two is already broken, but I got replacement by the same model)
