Excellent post, ChicagoJack. I think, however, the problem was simply a matter of wording. When people talk about dwell time and pocketing, they're almost always talking about the feeling that the ball is sinking into the stringbed. The only point I was trying to make is that the difference in stringbed contact time between strings is absolutely minimal. When you search around for dwell time, you get results with people saying strings have great dwell time or pocketing. That's a feeling, and as shown in your measured results, the difference between strings is only on the order of milliseconds, so there is no way you're feeling an appreciable increase in stringbed contact. That's where the thread got off on the wrong track, I never said that the time that the ball spends on the stringbed isn't measureable. If it wasn't, then there would be no way that I would know just how short of a time it's there
