Many recreational players wait until they break a string and for many that’s too long. For best performance, the rule of thumb is, restring as often per year as you play per week, but at least three times a year. Racquet strings lose tension over time and you will not get the same performance out of your racquet after hitting with it for three months as you did when you first had it strung.
Tension and Gauge: Go with the recommended tension for your brand of racquet for best performance. . There are many variables in racquet string, among them gauge (19 being the thinnest and 15 the thickest), and fabrication (synthetic blend to gut)
