The characteristics of string: resilience

Max resilience range

The maximum resilience range of the string is the range in which the string has the highest elastic response.

If you want to maximize the performance of the string in terms of power, dynamic response and elasticity, you should approach this value.

If, on the other hand, it is intended to increase control skills by reducing the exuberance of the string, it is necessary to raise the tension in proportion to the desired level of control.

Max resilience peak

Fast elastic response to impact, in other words if the string gives a feeling of explosivity.
A sort of value that indicates how much the string is explosive

The resilience peak value is the intensity of the resilient response compared to the maximum value obtainable from a natural gut filament.
Higher values indicate high dynamic responsiveness typical of filaments that give exuberance, vivacity and string power.

Resilient string Poorly resilient string
  • powerful
  • reactive
  • vivid
  • string with fast ball exit
  • weakly powerful
  • poorly reactive
  • woody
  • string with progressive ball exit

Average resilience

Value related to the average resilience of the string in the loading and unloading cycle compared to natural gut strings, absolute reference in terms of average resilience and peak.

High values indicate a string with “elastic” behaviour, generally softer on the joints and more powerful, while low values indicate strings with plastic behaviour, generally stiffer and with plastic behaviour more oriented to control and spin potential.
