I used this on a racquet that I had just gotten strung at 57 pounds. The String Meter read 57 pounds. Then I tried it on a a racquet that I had gotten strung a year ago at 54 pounds. The String Meter read 51 pounds. So it seems to be accurate.

Don't forget to set the correct string gauge. Setting that wrong by one unit (using 16 gauge when it should be 17 gauge) will change the tension reading by 10 pounds or so.

I am looking forward to being able to decide on when to restring my racquets based on an objective measurement instead of only on how well I am playing with it on a given day. (Can you tell that I am an engineer?)

This tension meter does what it claims to do. I think some of the complaints about it are from people who don't understand that the racquet string tension can vary left to right on the same racquet, and that the horizontal strings will be at a different value than the vertical strings. To confirm that the meter is reading consistently, measure just one string segment at several locations along it's length. I think you will get the same reading, and it will be accurate. The adjacent string may have a different value, but that is possible, since the high friction at the rim between those 2 string readings can make them actually different, even though it is the same string. I am totally satisfied with this meter and it's accuracy.

My only very minor complaint is that the string size gauge is difficult to read because it is black letters on black background. Since the letters are raised, I went over mine with a white paint pen, and now the numbers are easy to read, white on black.

Handy device which performs as advertised. The first one I received was missing the marker arrow for setting string gauge. I emailed the company and they gladly sent me a new one! I'm impressed! It's important to read the information brochure to understand why tension on the stringer doesn't always translate into tension on the meter, although for mine it's pretty close. I recommend this unit for monitoring string tension, and the price is reasonable.

This is awesome to help me test my string tension. I string rackets at home and this helps me do it with more confidence. Kinda takes the guess work out of wondering whether I strung my rackets at the right tension. I've been testing my tension over time after I play as well to see how much, if any, tension I've lost.

This seems to be a quality product. The instructions are quite limited, however, particularly with respect to string gauge. The numbers run from 15 to 19, I believe, but you could set the dial and either of 2 lines or in between the 2 lines for each size. Depending on what you choose the reported tension would differ by several pounds. I think I've figured out how to deal with this but there are no instructions.

First time I've tried a device like this...it works surprisingly well. Not difficult to figure out and takes only a moment or two to check the stringbed/sweet spot. Accuracy is always subjective on string tension but this gauge shows very repeatable numbers on several different frames (Wilson, Prince, Babolat). Can also use it to test your ear on string tension...I used to bounce the strings and listen for the tone to find a tighter/looser racquet (still do, actually).

If you are looking for great accuracy, I wouldn't suggest this. It seems like there is a high variance. It seems like more of a novelty than a tool.

As I measured strings all around the racquet there was wide variances between tensions. Maybe that's how it actually is. But it seems odd that a string right next to another could be 5 lb. different, when they are linked together.

This device is fine for measuring relative tension but I can't assume any accuracy because the little arrow sticker that you dial your string gauge to was loose in the package. I'm assuming it fell off from the heat during shipping but seems a poor way to calibrate the device, a low-adhesion decal. Now I have to guess where it was based on product photos. I suggest you notch your dial physically with a knife or a hot needle or something so you don't loose your place if the sticker falls off.

I will say that the tension decrease I've measured on at least 5 newly strung racquets is what I would expect so it seems like it has potential, just executed poorly by Tourna. I love the full-color fold-out instructions; they are informative and complete.
