I've only been stringing for about a month. Last week I used my dropweight (Gamma Progression 200) and strung my frame (Angell TC100) with syngut (Volkl Classic) at 55 lbs. Immediately after I finished, I used racquetTune and measured tension at 53.1 lbs, which I figured was a pretty decent reading. About 10 mins later, I measured again for the heck of it and it read about 51 lbs. So there was a little tension loss right away, which I assume is normal? The next day, I went out to the courts to practice serves for about an hour. I haven't touched the frame since. One week later (today), I measured tension again out of curiosity and it read 47.3 lbs, which is about 10.8% tension loss from the initial reading, according to racquetTune. Is this kind of tension loss normal with syngut? I barely played with it - one session of serve practice, the rest of the time in my bag. I think I read somewhere that once all the knots are tied, the strings will compensate for uneven tension by equalizing themselves to a common tension. Is this true or did I just make this up? Maybe this is why there was tension loss in the few minutes following the initial reading? Is it because I might be tying my knots wrong? I've been using Parnell knots exactly as YULitle's video instructs. I use a starting clamp to start my crosses, so as far as I know it's okay to use a Parnell knot for everything. Any tips to help preserve tension longer? Can you pre-stretch syngut? Will it make a difference? Will the strings reach a point where it will just maintain the tension until they break, or will they continue to lose tension until they break? Thanks.
