if you were to use a weaved vibration dampner (something like a Head Smartsorb) then that would take up some of the slack from your strings, but the best way is still to get your racquets re-strung.

Don't ever try to do it yourself withpout the proper tools or training!


Good luck!

Here is a Stringing Guide which will be interesting to those who restring their rackets.  I was really looking for string tensioners, if they are still  on the market. They looked very much like the "string savers" mentioned in this article.

There's no way to tighten them, you need to get it restrung. If you use a good string like Tecnifibre or Ashaway, it will hold its tension long and you probably won't need to restring until the strings break. Cheap nylon strings will lose their elasticity long before they break.
