They hold tension as well as any other stick .

But the key to vortex and I suspect Wilson as well is that the tension should be very loose. The looser the better.....Vortex usually comes strung around 45 pounds .

I string the 99s at 56 but I'm going to down to 45.....then you really can feel the slingshot effect the best in my opinion.
