since you own a star 4 and 2 baiardos...if you were to string two of the same racquets, one on the star 4 and the other on the baiardo at the same reference tension using the same string, technique and stringing pattern, would the racquets have the same ERT readings? if not, how much difference have you measured? (assuming you've tried this before)
mad dog, thanks for the question. Although I have never done a direct test of stringing a racquet on the wilson, and another on the babolat immediately afterwards to compare results, I will note the following:

Every racquet I string, I keep a running log of tension, string, pattern, ERT and SBD immediately after taking the racquet off the machine. I have noticed that most times, the ERT and SBD are nearly identical regardless of machine.
