The characteristics of string: the static tension holding

The static stability of a string is a direct measure of how the string tends to maintain or not, in the first 300 seconds (5 minutes) after tensioning, the initial tension. In the case of a string with poor attitudes to static tensional stability, there will be a pronounced decline in the tension value, which […]

In this case, we analyzed what happens when you string a racquet with a progressive tension pattern. In this case, progressively lower tensions were adopted because of the shorter length of the string, both for vertical and horizontal ropes. The reference tension for the power plants is once again 24kg. What do we expect from […]

Stringinging techniques: 4 knots with differentiated tension

The 4-knots pattern, which provides differentiated tensions between vertical and horizontal, is a widely used solution. The maximum recommended tension difference between “mains” and “crosses” should be contained within 2kg of difference in order to avoid deformation and permanent damage to the frame structure. The solution analyzed in this case has provided for the installation […]

The 4 knots stringing is a classic now considered a standard and widespread throughout the world. The tension applied to the vertical strings in this case is the same as that applied to the horizontal strings starting from the consideration that during the assembly of the horizontal strings, the presence of the pre-installed vertical strings […]

The dynamic stability of a string is a direct measure of how the string tends to maintain its original characteristics over time. In the case of a string with poor attitudes to dynamic stability, shot after shot we will see a progressive drop in tension, a progressive plasticization of the string and a pronounced and […]

The spin attitude of a string depends on a number of factors that can be distinguished into two large “families”. Group 1 (made of rigid and medium rigid strings working for snap-back) static and dynamic surface friction coefficient (i.e. from the outer layer of the rope) deflectional stiffness of the string  which determines the return […]

The level of control of a tennis string depends on how much this, pushing in confidence and full arm, allows you not to lose the ball control ensuring directionality and trajectory. The control of a string is defined proportionally by the level of stiffness of the filament itself, that is, on the basis of how […]
