Choose the two strings you want to compare. Comparison automatically appears when you change either string. Differences between strings are all shown as the percentage difference of string 2 to string 1.
A tennis string comparison tool allowing the user to design reports on string stiffness, energy return, tension loss, peak impact force, impact tension increase, dwell time, deflection, etc., for user-defined impact conditions including string tension and swing speed.
A tennis string comparison tool comparing string on lab tested performance criteria like power, energy return, stiffness, softness, control, comfort, shock, inter-string friction, ball-to-string friction and spin potential.
However, with more than a handful of polyester strings on the market, one string stands out as the best tennis string for topspin, and that’s Babolat RPM Blast. Babolat RPM Blast First, as a polyester tennis string, the strings are slick and quickly snap back into place upon contact, helping to generate topspin.
The String Comparison Tool compares any two strings on all the important properties that determine performance: material, stiffness, tension loss, energy return, spin potential, string-to-string friction, and string-to-ball friction.

The number of tennis strings on the market is staggering. With new strings popping up every year, the consumer is left to choose between a dizzying array of materials, features, gauges and technologies. The good news is that if you are searching for a string in 2021 you don’t have to sweat the small stuff. We’ve got you covered.
The Racquet Comparison Tool compares properties of any two racquets. The comparison parameters include both statically and dynamically measured performance variables. The dynamic specs are measured during the impact between a ball and racquet. These include power potential, sweet zone size, and vibration frequency.
The analysis is based on an incident ball speed of 25 mph with spin of 3,000 rpm and hit at the top of the bounce, a swing angle of 19 degrees upward from horizontal, and racquet tilt of 10 degrees forward from vertical. The impact point is 21 inches from the butt end and either on-center or 2 inches off-center.
For a given string installed in both the mains and crosses, spin potential is the ratio of the string-to-ball stickiness divided by the string-to-string slipperiness (string-to-ball COF / string-to-string COF). The higher the ratio, the greater the spin potential. If the string-to-string friction is low, the main strings will slide along the ...
