I'm happy to announce the addition of a brand new feature to the Stringforum.net website: The DT Database!
The DT Database (DT = dynamic tension) aims at collecting stringbed stiffness measurements under many different conditions. All important parameters that influence the stringbed stiffness are stored, like racquet model, string, tension, machine type, stringing method, time of measurement.
From the collected data you will be able to see how a change of each of the parameters influences the resulting stringbed stiffness. This will for example help you to determine the reference tension to string a given racquet at a given target DT value.
If you are the owner of an ERT device, a Stringway StringLab, a Babolat RDC, or a Pacific Multi Test Computer, please contribute to this collection!
Measurements can be linked to string reviews, providing additional objective information about the course of the tension loss. To add DT measurements to your existing string ratings, please go to "My Ratings
" to edit your string ratings.
If you have any questions or suggestions concerning the DT Database, please post them here!
