Examples using Raquet Tune----

Strung at 65, an hour or less later it reads 48

Strung at 67, an hour or less later it reads 48.

In all of these cases, not a ball was struck.

Hmmmmm.......me thinks me sees a pattern here!
Yes the pattern shows it's dead by design. Zero elasticity after it deformed under tension. Now you can cut in the middle and see very little movement, like if you cut electric wire.
