Dahcor Strings Added

Four (4) Dahcor strings have been added to the String Characteristic Data.

In case you don't recognize the Dahcor brand it is a brand that is what I term a "Direct Sales" brand meaning you go to their website to select and order the racquet of your choice, and, it seems to be a pretty broad choice.

Dahcor Carbon

Dahcor Silver

Dahcor Black

Dahcor Hybrid-Silver and Black Polyester

The strings, according to the package, are made in Austria.

The Dahcor Carbon may be what is shown as the No Name string in the data since it was not in a package.  The Carbon has a different "finish" than the other versions.

They seem to be typical of polyester based strings.
