Re: String Tension vs/ power
Joe you can also give your lady the scenario of the tennis strings being
like a trampoline when the ball strikes it. The looser the strings the
further the ball becomes trampolined from the racquet due to the fact
that the strings travel a much further pathbehind the frame of the
racquet when the ball impacts on the strings.
I have also found it very useful in my pro shop to have 2 identical
racquet sstrung at different pounds. One I have strung at 50 lbs and the
other at 60 lbs, not only would this answer your ladies question but it
good to have in a pro shop for when people come in for restrings and are
really not sure what tension they want, the idea of trying before buying.
