I wanted to let you know the results on my own racquet tension from a drop weight to the lockout on the Apex. Well, the string meter only goes up 70lbs. I set the tension at 72lbs. The string meter got to 70 and still had a little to go. So for all you out there that say you see 5% or even 10% difference, I did not see it here. This was prince synthetic Duro 17g. And yes, I checked the calibration of the machine. Same string meter that notices ~5lbs drop from a drop weight at this same tension. I was pleasantly surprised. Any ideas here? Granted this is only one result and I need a few more stringing jobs from the same frame type to get a good dataset.
