Dear Stringway contact ,

We noticed that (new) stringers have difficulties to find fundamental information about racquet stringing and racquet tuning.

Therefore hereby a number of links to our documents and links to calculators in one glance.

** Our seminar “from stringer to racquet tuner”:

This tells more about tuning the stringbed for different types of players, with the type of string, and the string bed stiffness. Also how to calculate stringing tensions for different racquets based on the advised SBS. ENG.pdf

** Our seminar racquet tuning “measuring is knowing”:

This tells more about measuring all specifications of the racquets and string bed and what specs shoud be used for children and adults. is knowing to send.pdf

** Choosing a stringing machine

This document describes the most important qualities of a good stringing machine. a Stringing Machine II.pdf

** The online Tension Advisor:

This system advises a certain class of string and SBS for every type of player based on the answers to a number of questions. On Page 3 the user can enter the dimensions of the racquet head and the number of strings, and the system will calculate the stringing tension for mains and crosses.

** Manual of the tension Advisor: Advisor ENG.pdf

** To measure the string bed stiffness SBS?

The manual of the Stringlab 2 SBS / RA tester ENG/STRINGLAB 2 MANUAL.pdf

** Swing weight advisor ENG

The SW advisor advises a Swing Weight for players based on their technic, age and body build.

** Measuring the SW of every racquet.

This system calculates the SW of a racquet when the head and grip weight is entered. It also calculates the weight to add in order to raise a SW with a certain amount. ( This system can e opened in the same menu als the TA and SW advisors)

** The manual of the SW advisor / calculator.

** Our article for the USRSA “The complete stringer: From Stringer to ‘Racquet Tuner’”

** The last list of tested strings that we made.

This list classifies strings in 5 classes based on the elongation tests.

** This document describes the meaning of the elongation figures .

If you are missing anything please let me know we want to share as much knowledge as possible with you.

If you have any kind of questions just let us know

A number of stringers asked us what machine they should take a ML100 or a MS140, this comparison can help.

Comparison between ML100 and the MS140.

These can be compared on different aspects:

  • Features.

The biggest differences between the ML100 and the MS140 are:

  • The ML100 is available with fixed clamps the MS140 only with flying clamps.
  • The ML100 needs the Concorde system for 360 degree rotation and easy tensioning of the mains in the bridge, the MS140 has 360 degree rotation.
  • The MS140L has the knot function.
  • The MS140L has a 4 point direct racquet support with fast clamp system, the ML100 has 5 point support with 4 clamping hooks.

The difference for the racquet is very small, mounting a racquet on the MS140 is much easier and faster.

* Accuracy.

  • Both machines are constant pull and can not overshoot the tension as many electronic machines do.
  • The stringer has to check the calibration on the MS140 and adjust it if necessary. The ML100 does need this check.

* Stringing result.

  • The stringing result will be exactly the same on both machines.

* Stringing convenience.

  • The tension head on the MS140 is the same as on the ML100.
  • Many stringers prefer the 360 degree of the MS140 but many ML100 users do not need it.
  • The flying clamps on the ML100 are the same as on the MS140 (with one triple and one double)
  • There are stringers who prefer fixed clamps but as many who prefer flying clamps so that is very personal. Both systems can  supply the same quality stringjob.
  • Flying clamps are much cheaper.
  • A Fixed clamp machine is 4 kg heavier.

* Transportability / room needed.

  • The ML100 needs more room for use because of the longer lever. When the machine is not in use the lever can be removed.
  • The MS140 is very easy to store in a cupboard.
  • For players the MS140 is much more suitable to take to tournaments it weighs 7 kg and the ML100 at least 17 kg.
  • A travel case is available for the MS140.

Hereby some information maybe it is useful for you.

* Racquet- stress – deflection – mounting – stringing tensions.

I had some conversations with Stringway users about different matters but the same items.

It seems that there is still a lot of misunderstanding about the deflection of a racquet before and after stringing and the best way to minimize that during stringing.

This document describes more about the influence of the racquet support and the stringing tensions on the deflection and much more important the stress in the racquet material.

* Pre productie offer of the Stringlab and RS frame.

We are going to assemble a new series of Stringlabs which means that there will be a “preproduction offer until 5 februari.

Stringlab  € 147.84      (€ 164.27 )      (In Eu + 21% tax)

Stringlab + racquet stiffness test  € 204.45     (€ 227.17)       (In Eu + 21% tax)

This video shows the Stringlab in action:

 More information on our site:

* The new light weight machine.

The first series of the light weight traveler machine is produced and about 35 of the 45 orders that we have are shipped and in use.

We are very happy that there are only minor remarks on the system all stringers who send us feed back are very happy with their machine.

Most of the machines were ordered including the travel case, because that it is the best way to transport it. The machine is fixed with bolts in the case so that it can not move around at all.
