Tension is put into a blade so it holds its shape in both vertical and horizontal position; so it doesn’t ‘cup’ or wobble with speed. Think of a rolling pin rolling out a piece of dough from the center to the edge. Tensioning presses the blade around the middle area, forcing tension into the main body of the blade, so that it holds its shape.
