    Does the tension loss measure up to the final stabilization level?

    Thanks

    The tension loss is the accumulated loss after first pulling to reference tension, waiting 60 seconds for static tension loss, and then doing 20 "conditioning"/"stabilization" hits at full speed, and then one test hit. Tension loss is the total tension lost (both static and dynamic) from initial reference tension.

    Thanks. How long does the testing take?

    Sorry, I meant how long does the test hit last?

    What is the test hit process?

    Thanks

    How does no 7 on that list, test impacts, work?

    Thanks.

    TWU, is the tension loss data relevant to tennis playing conditions?

    I'm guessing the testing process takes about 10 minutes. Do some strings lose more tension, over longer periods, like 3 + hours?
