You obviously don't actually feel the ball on the strings. You feel the vibrations of the racket (racket/string system) which start as the ball contacts the strings and continues long after the ball has left the strings. A looser and/or more flexible string job will respond with lower frequency vibrations than a tighter stiffer string job. These vibrations will be correlated to the dwell time on the racket. Your brain can tell the differences between the vibrations, and then, through experience, will tell you that your are expericencing hitting the ball with a more flexible system (more rubber band-like) or a stiffer system (more iron-bar like).
