Ok to use old tennis racket?

Is it ok to use an old tennis racket as long as you change the strings and the frame looks good? I mean its metal, not like wood, and it's a prince. I like it, but are there any concerns I should look out for?

The short answer is, most likely yes. Depending on how old the frame is (25 years and newer) you should be fine. A lot of people are fans of old vintage racquets like the Prince original graphite, wilson prostaff 6.0, etc... The thing is though, while old. those frames were player frames (ie: top of the line for its time). For example driving a vintage 1960's chevy corvette would be great, whereas driving a 1960's ford pinto probably isn't. Same thing goes with racquets, if your racquet is a vintage cheapo racquet, then really the strings you'd be putting on it is prolly worth more than the racquet.

Yes, racquet companies constantly "change technology" and sometimes its for better, more often than not, its for worse and its mostly just a ploy to keep people buying new racquets. If you can play with the frame, and it works for you, by all means go for it. A good rule of thumb is if you bring the frame in and the guy stringing doesn't make any snide comments like... uhhh ur really going to play with this?
