I am getting better at tennis and need tighter tention of strings my racket is all right but I am considering getting a better racket or just getting it restrung which should I do?

Changing a racket takes a few weeks to get used to. If you like your racket and you feel comfortable playing with it, then I consider just changing the strings. If you don't feel comfortable with your racket and you feel that you can do better with another one then just get a new racket altogether. It really just depends on your racket and if it feels comfortable to use.
