Recommended Stringing Frequency (RSF)
We have moved the very popular Recommended Stringing Frequency (RSF) spreadsheet to the main body of our web page to make it easy for you to determine when to re-string your tennis racquet. This recommendation is based on the very best overall performance of your racquet.
You can use this valuable tool to evaluate a tennis racquet purchase. If you are considering a new racquet insert those values and compare it to what you are currently using to see if your stringing frequency will be similar.
This is an interactive spreadsheet so all you need to do is put your racquet values into the fields below “Your Input” heading. The rest is calculated for you. Don’t worry if you do not have a UTR number. By putting a “0” in that field a value will be added for you.
In “Player Style” you can enter, “tour, club, beg, rec” and a value will be inserted for you. If you are a junior tournament player please use “tour” in this field.
It is not necessary to put a value in both the “UTR” and “Player Style” fields, just one will do.
Use “return” to move on to the next field.
The “Value/Playability Ratio” incorporates a factor to quantify the value, or enjoyment, of each type of string.
In the “Stringing Date” box near the bottom you can enter the date your racquet was strung and your “Next Stringing” date will be calculated for you.
We hope you enjoy this update! Go ahead, start now!
