Racket - Maintenance?

Hi all,

I have a few questions here...I've been looking for an upgrade over my cheap wallmart racket. I found a few nice rackets but I noticed the strings not alligned/straight. Is this the norm for pro rackets...do they have to be adjusted/straightened by hand after each volley? Is there additional maintenance or stringing involved with these rackets? I'm a bit confused regarding this b/c the racket I have has been used many times and the strings have not moved at all.

Re: Racket - Maintenance?

in most factory strung rackets the strings are not straightened after stringing, as such it would be rather difficult for you to make them straight. the best thing to do when you buy a pre-strung racket is to have it restrung straight away by a decent stringer
