Does TW do proportional stringing and have the playtesters tried it?

    Sergetti, etc. is what I mean..

    Would also be interesting to see a graph of how much each playtester switches racquets in your playtester profiles list too.
    Working at TW must make you a bit addicted to trying and switching to all the new stuff if you're a racquetholic ;-)

    @kenyee,

    We have not tried proportional stringing, or Sergetti stringing. The only change of tension we do while stringing, are some of the common practices. For example, pulling tighter on the last strings before tying off, or a few pound difference between the mains and crosses of a hybrid.

    Unfortunately, we do not have graphs of how often our playtesters switch racquets. Here is a fun thread, where Chris listed his racquet history over the years: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/ind...-official-frame-history.572448/#post-10629780.

    As this thread was a couple of years ago, he has switched twice since then, to the Yonex EZONE DR 98+, and currently the Tecnifibre TFlash 300 PS.


    Happy Hitting,
    Troy, TW

    TW uses a lockout machine. Sergetti stringing on a lockout is not recommended but I can't see why it wouldn't work. May have something to do with the way the algorithms compute the tensions.
