Hey Dino... I have a favor to ask if you have a chance.
We're having a debate in the stringing machine forum here at TT concerning swingweight. Others have reported that any weight added to a frame, below the pivot point will result in a decrease
in SW... which is physically impossible. I'd like to verify it one more time on a different machine to determine if this is an idiosyncrasy of the RDC machine.
My question is this:
The next time you have a racquet on the RDC machine, after determining the swingweight, would you attach/add an additional 10-20 grams of weight as close to the butt cap as you can and then re-run the swingweight test? The weight can be taped to the end or added inside the buttcap.
If you can do this,
I'd like to know the following:
- Racquet model
- Swingweight (stock)
- Swingweight (with added weight)
- Amount of extra weight added to the buttcap
- Approximate distance weight is added from the pivot point of the RDC machine (should be 8-9 cm, I believe)
