    Hi, You show the stiffness on the Wilson K Factor KThree listed at 49.
    Is this correct? It seems very low, especially for a fairly thick beamed racquet.
    Thanks, Steve

    Yes it is correct. Due to the Triad technology, you can't measure the true stiffness of the racquet on the RDC machine. The RDC flexes the racquet right where it is built in three pieces (Triad) and so usually gives a very low stiffness read for Triad racquets.
