The collection of stringbed stiffness measurements
Stringbed stiffness (measured in DT - Dynamic Tension) is the major parameter that determines the playing characteristics of a tennis racquet.
This value represents the force which is necessary to push down the stringbed for 1 cm in a contact area about the size of a
tennis ball. The DT value is dependent on a number of parameters: string pattern, string, tension, stringer, time point of measurement
and so on. To string a racquet at a desired DT value either requires a lot of experience, a sophisticated formula, or simply a
lookup in the Stringforum.net DT Database.
Please contribute to this data collection. If you have a device that measures the stringbed stiffness, you can submit your measurements
