United States Racquet Stringers Association - Lab Testing

Tier One Sports strings provide exceptional performance ON and OFF the court: Besides great reviews from our customers we now received an important quantitative data point about our strings as well- TENSION STABILITY. Bob Patterson from the USRSA (United States Racquet Stringers Association) provides their readers with a comprehensive list of tennis string lab test results for string stiffness and tension stability. Bob was kind enough to test all Tier One Sports strings as well.

Small Business Does Not Mean Lesser Quality:

​Our production team was able to develop a co-polyester compound that is superior in ​tension stability and string stiffness (softness) to most poly strings in the tennis industry (see lab test comparison below). We Offer exceptional string quality ​often at lower prices than our competitors.​ ​

Qualitative Lab Test Results Do Matter:

There are 2 fundamental factors that build a foundation for ​the quality of a co-polyester string: tension stability and string stiffness.  Having tested a great variety of strings from our competitors we recognized the very limited number of strings on the market that perform well in both areas. Either the string is overly stiff or loses tension too quickly. ​

To offer some insight into the quality of our strings we made sure to compare them to some of the "best", well known strings in the industry!
