We would like to point out that there are a few companies that support us here at IART. Some provide equipment for testing purposes and others provide nice discounts to our members. Below is the current list of companies that support the IART.
The following are companies that provide equipment for testing purposes.
All racquets that are reviewed on the Alliance web site are tested on a Babolat RDC. That unit is provided to the Alliance web site and used extensively for all testing purposes
We have constant pull as well as lockout machines that we use for testing purposes at Alliance. The following are manufacturers that provide us with the stringing machines used for testing purposes
Prince provides us with a Neos 1000 manual lockout stringing machine. The Neos 1000 has long been recognized as the industry standard among lockout machines, having morphed from the original Ektelon Model machines of the past like the D & H.
Wilson provides us with a BAIARDO constant pull stringing machine. The BAIARDO has established itself as a solid machine since it's introduction, especially when it comes to tournament stringing.
