For those who are interested hereby an update of our Badminton project. Because our Stringlab 2 is in production and because it can also test badminton string-beds, we started a “badminton project” together with a number badminton-specialized-stringers. The two badminton stringers work in the top of the Dutch badminton competition, and both guys are very interested in innovation in the badminton world. Except those guys our Japanese and US agent (who is Yonex agent) are involved. One of the major objectives of the project is to find a relation between stringing tension, the string and the end result of a stringjob, being the stringbed stiffness (SBS) The table below shows some test results that we already did. The upper part shows the SBS of a number of racquets which are all strung at the same tension, (8,6 kg for the mains and 9,6 for the crosses. The resulting SBS differs from 16 to 28 kg/cm. The lower part shows a number of racquets which were tested on the brainstorm day that we held; The stringbed of the 2 racquet at the top were unused and strung at the same tensions, the difference in tension is more than 10 %. All these racquets were strung by the same stringer on the same machine.
