Also, I just noticed that I wrote "XX % of previous reading" in all posts, however it should read "XX% of first reading".
Could a moderator please edit the posts if it's not too much to ask ?

What strings were used for this.

I used BG65, hence the slightly higher than normal tension loss after a week :P

Do you think the tension loss is caused by the difference in gutting Style or pattern.
I think your next experiment should be about gutting patterns. I mean which pattern is more sustainable for String Tension.

- Pre-stretch or not
- Stringer technique
- Knots used
- String used
- The player (Hard hitters will most likely find that their stringbed loses tension faster)
The pattern does have an effect, but I don't think it's a big difference. I'll happily do the test when I get to string these rackets again (I'm cutting one string bed and broke my old one's strings during a tournament this weekend).
I will be using 2 knots vs 4 knots. Not going into the fancy haribito stuff :P

Do You know any good & cheap tool to test the string tension.
So that I also can do some excrement on my customer's rackets.
Right now I am just collecting stringing data from the log book.
From there I can estimate how much a string lasts for particular player & particular tension & strings.

You can buy a fishing scale to calibrate your machine, but there are no tools to directly test your string tension.
If fact, there is one, it's from a japanese website and I've never got any answer from them.

Well HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA after looking for the meaning of excrement
Which means "Waste material, especially fecal matter, that is expelled from the body after digestion." Did not know that.

Can you please give me their link.

The second image in this thread:
The link is a little further down the page.
The first one is for tennis and doesn't work for badminton rackets.
