Choose the two strings you want to compare. Comparison automatically appears when you change either string. Differences between strings are all shown as the percentage difference of string 2 to string 1.
A tennis string comparison tool comparing string on lab tested performance criteria like power, energy return, stiffness, softness, control, comfort, shock, inter-string friction, ball-to-string friction and spin potential.
Not surprisingly, this string holds the top spot for spin in our Tennis Warehouse University String Lab. Beginner tip: If you’re looking to add the benefits of spin to your game and you don’t want to switch to a stiff polyester monofilament, you can get extra spin through higher string tensions and thinner gauges.
The Racquet Comparison Tool compares properties of any two racquets. The comparison parameters include both statically and dynamically measured performance variables. The dynamic specs are measured during the impact between a ball and racquet. These include power potential, sweet zone size, and vibration frequency.
The higher the ratio, the greater the spin potential. If the string-to-string friction is low, the main strings will slide along the crosses and snap-back. If the string-to-ball friction is high, the strings will grab the ball during the snap-back. This combination adds incremental spin to the ball.
The stiffness of a string not only impacts how fast, high and far a ball will fly when struck (think power and control), but it also influences the type of feedback and the amount of shock sent to your hand (think feel and comfort). In our Tennis Warehouse University string lab, Cyclone posted an 18 percent lower stiffness score than RPM Blast.
