Some tension maintenance numbers I've collected recently:

All numbers are %tension loss. First number is 24 hours, no hitting. Second number is 48 hours with 2 hours hitting, third number is 96 hours with 3 hours hitting. Fourth number is 1 week with 5 hours hitting (I listed reason for strings with no 4th measurement).

All strings in 16x20, 99in racquet, 2 piece, 50# with 10% extra on all knots.
