- Q: How often should I restring my rackuet?
A: The common rule of thumb is to restring as often per year as you play per week, but at least twice per year--once before the indoor season, and once before the outdoor season. This is just a rough guideline. Some types of string lose tension faster than others, heavy spin hitters wear strings out much faster than flat hitters, and some players seem quite happy to let the strings decide when to be replaced -- by breaking.
- Q: What gauge of tennis string is best?
A: Thinner gauges offer more playability (often equated with "feel"). Thicker strings offer more durability. Most serious players who don't like to restring too often use 16 gauge. 17 and 18 gauge are for those who can afford string luxury. Each gauge has a light (L) variation that's a little thinner.
- Q: What's the best string tension to protect my arm?
A: Lower string tensions prolong the contact between ball and strings, spreading the impact shock over a longer period of time and thus reducing stress on your arm.
