    22 lbs of total tension loss after hitting 20 high speed hits? I thought Luxilon retain tension well?


    "Total tension lost during the test, including the minute wait after tensioning, the 20 high speed hits to stabilize tensions, and the actual test impacts."

    Results from TW string database.

    spot-on! lux has never (and never will be) known for having good tension maintaining abilities...there are plenty of better options - check the USRSA data base to see....

    All polys lose a lot of tension right after stringing, about 2x as much as nylon strings, then they stabilize until they lose elasticity and go dead.

    Yep, Alu loses tension fast.

    Luxilon does not hold tension very well, but not really a surprise is it !!

    Most polys suck at holding tension - no surprise there really :)
