The problem with older strings is that they develop grooves. I'll take a set off and there will be indents where I play the most. That isn't a good thing imho.
I used to boil my Rotosounds when I was a teenager. I didn't have money for new strings.

But besides the dents, the steel core stretches and you have metal fatigue. They never sound new after boiling, but they sound a bit brighter.
