Could you please help me rank these racquets in order of string sensitivity?
 
Hi TW, as the title suggests I want to pick out one of my racquets to test strings. If possible could please rank all of them in a detailed scale (A>>>>B>C) in term of "string test performance?". Thank you very much!

What I have:

Donnay Formula 100
Donnay X-Red 94
Dunlop 400 Tour
Dunlop 200 Lite
Head IG Extreme MP
Slazenger Pro Braided
Wilson BLX Blade 98
Wilson BLX 6.1 Team

Hopefully Volkl V1 soon...

"a detailed scale"....some of these questions are really becoming absurd.

So the Donnays are most sensitive to string? And you have tried all of them right? :)

Can I get the answer to my "absurd" question as a Christmas present TW? :D

My suggestion is to pick a racquet you're comfortable with and familiar with so you know how it plays. Once you're testing string, you will be able to feel the difference of how each string plays in it.

Thank you for the suggestion, Tiffani. I was thinking about that too but I think that it would still be better if I know if one racquet is more string sensitive than the other...

String sensitivity is a very personal thing, and it depends on how comfortable you are to a racquet. For me, I'm used to the Yonex RDiS 100 Mid, so to me it feels very string sensitive because I know what the racquet feels like and thus can pick up on slight changes in the feel at contact based on the string. However, if you picked up my Yonex racquet and hit it you might not be able to pick up differences in feel based on different strings because you are not used to the racquet.

Once again, our suggestion would be to find a racquet (or two) on your list that you are very familiar with, and then test the strings in that(those) racquet(s) so that you can pick up the slight changes in feel between the different strings.

Andy, TW
