    Yup, from what I've tried so far, VS850 isn't particularly worse than others...

    The tension loss that everyone talks about might only have to do with the feeling of the string going down. Just like how people say Ultimax stops performing after about 1-2 weeks.

    Another example that I've mentionned a few times already is how amazing zymax tension retention is according to a lot of people, while it seems normal or even bad to me (looking at frequency readings).

    I've just done a racket with VS850 with prestretch ON - let's see how it does. The WISE didn't chatter as much at the end of the pulls, so that's a good sign (but at 32 lb, it very nearly ran out of track).

    Assuming same stringing flow and technique, clamps not slipping on the thinner zm62?

    ^yes...

    Can simply compare to Mark's zm62 a few pages back. I also usually get frequencies pretty close to his.

    ^ Yah, no kidding... I posted a 3 star review for it to complain. Is there a way to downgrade to previous version?

    Looked around and found this one, seems promising, quite sensitive and reproducible.

    Just get Perfect Pitch for your PC - add a 1 microhone off eBay and bang the input gain up as high as it will go.

    far too lazy to fire up the PC and then on the headset etc. that pano tune seems OK. tested a known other racquet that had stabilized. also can test on the go.

    I updated to the latest version of the Carl Tuner and it does work. Not like before though and not as easy. Now I get a reading on every couple strums but I have to stand the racket vertically next to the phone's microphone, with the head down and just hold the racket cap. I also tried Pano Tuner and that actually worked just like Visor posted. I second Visor's post, skip Carl Tuner and use Pano Tuner. I got same readings on both apps, with Pano Tuner being much easier to use.

    Also found another sensitive tuner app, with real time FFT waveform display. Pretty nifty, and it's free.

    I was just going to post how well n track works for iPhone. With ClearTune I wasn't getting great readings so I did a quick search and n track came up. My readings fall right where it should be when looking at previous stats. I prefer hitting the palm of my hand or against a hard object and it gets the same reading as if I would strum it so it works quite well here =D let the monitoring begin!

    ^ Yes, and now that we found several that work well and are quite sensitive, don't forget to set it to never update the app...
