As soon as I string the frame, I take a ert 300, String bed deflection (SBD) on a Babolat RDC, as well as a string meter measurement. Then repeat 24 hours later, then before and after every hit until the string breaks.

I ask for feedback from the person I'm hitting with, as well as my own experience when concluding findings on a particular string.

Hope this helps.
If you could only find some better competition!
