Restringing - Squash

Stringing is a stressful experience for squash rackets. They are supporting high string loads in relation to their mass and consequently it takes time and care to make sure that the racket is not being over-stressed during the process; rushing through the work and/or bad technique will shorten the life of the racket.

Stringing Options

Squash rackets come in many different configurations and the differences can have an impact on the type of strings that you choose. A racket with 12 main [vertical] strings will wear the string quicker than a racket with the more traditional 16 or 18 patterns; consequently a more durable string might be appropriate.

Generally strings perform at their best when the crosses are set at one or two lbs less than the main strings. In terms of tension on the strings, the owner should consider what he/she most wants to improve in their game:

Less Tension

A racket strung at a lower tension will provide more power than one at high tension. Generally better for players still developing their game.

More Tension

Provides greater control and more applicable for advanced players who are aiming for precise length and width; and of course nicks.
