View Full Version : electricity build up on stringbed

I have been noticing lately that after I play there is what seems to be a static electricity build up on the stringbed. I can feel it in my palm when I hover my hand over the strings. I use Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour, so maybe its that. Anyone else notice this, perhaps on a different type of string?

Well if you think about it, it's just like clothing. Polyester clothing becomes statically charged easily, as do polyester strings. Not a problem--definitely nothing to worry about.

Try Fisher with magnets, the racqet hold itself on fence. Or, put 5ft of flex wire in your shorts, it'll ground you.

Or get a Head liquidmetal prestige or radical and put a lightbulb socket in the grip. Works great as a Nightlight....
