GAMMA Tennis Celebrates 25th Anniversary of TNT String
May 14, 2019 Sports News(PRLEAP.COM) PITTSBURGH – GAMMA Tennis, under the parent company GAMMA Sports, is celebrating a year-long anniversary of its patented TNT tennis string.
First designed by the company's late founder Dr. Harry Ferrari, the Vice President of Research and Development Ron Carr and the Director of Product Marketing Chuck Vietmeier, the Thermo Nuclear Technology (TNT) launched GAMMA into the mainstream string market.
"Although Dr. Ferrari's irradiation process had set the standard for elasticity and resiliency in synthetic strings, there was still room for improvement to reach the performance levels of natural gut," Ron Carr, Vice President of Research and Development for GAMMA Sports, commented.
After four years of testing and trials, the trio found the process that actually exceeded the performance levels of natural gut string. The process itself remains a trade secret that only a few individuals in the company are privy to.
