Guide To Squash Racket Restringing
Every racket comes with a recommended string tension which is sometimes listed on the racket throat.
There is a common misconception when choosing squash racket strings that a higher string tension gives greater power. In fact the reverse is true. A higher or tighter string tension provides less power but increases control. This is because the string works like a trampoline. When the ball hits the racket it ‘catches’ then shoots the ball back out again with greater power (also known as ‘rebound’)
A racket strung at a lower tension will provide more power than one at high tension. Generally better for players still developing their game.
Provides greater control and more applicable for advanced players who are aiming for precise length and width; and of course nicks.
The recommended tension when restringing squash rackets is 20-35lbs. In general larger racket heads will require higher tension than smaller ones in order to achieve comparable playability levels.
Racket strings will lose tension over time, even if they are not in constant use.
Thin strings are more powerful but do tend to be less durable so can work out more costly to use as more frequent restrings may be required. Thicker strings are more resistant but as they are generally less powerful there is a trade off.
Squash strings range from 1.06mm – 1.30mm thickness. Thicker strings are available but these are really designed for Tennis or Racquetball rackets with larger head.
There are different types of string:
Natural gut strings have great resilience and offer good control and touch. They do tend to be more commonly used in tennis rackets and can be very costly.
Most squash players come pre-strung by the manufacturers with synthetic strings and there are several types available i.e. monofilament (one solid piece), multifilament (many pieces intertwined) or nylon.
