What Technologies are you selling? (Part 3 of 3)

Have you and your staff ever wished you had a list of all the major racquet technologies, all in one place? Well, with the help of material from the U.S. Racquet Stringers Association, here it is.

This is the final installment of an alphabetical compilation of information taken directly from industry product and marketing catalogs and technical manuals. The claims made come directly from the manufacturers, not from RSI or the USRSA, and no endorsement of any product or claim is intended. You can see all of the manufacturers’ technologies (which we’ve also run in the June and July issues) on our website.

Yonex

Yonex also recommends that racquet technicians string its racquets at different tensions for different grip sizes. The recommended tension range for a racquet will be found in the throat of the racquet because even with the same model, a 4½" grip will have a higher recommended tension range than a 4¼" grip.

Wilson

Wilson labels most of its racquets with a swing index (S.I.) rating, which is generally higher on softer frames.
