For natural-gut like playability, Ashaway Monogut ZX 16L String takes full advantage of the Zyex material in a 100% monofilament construction. The absence of polyester materials increases the elongation properties for increased comfort and power while the monofilament construction offers enhanced durability compared to multifilaments. Unlike both polyester and nylon strings, Monogut Zyex maintains its tension longer for reliable performance throughout the life of the string. Our testers felt that the dynamic properties of the Zyex material gave the string similar power to even some of the best multifilaments while holding its playability longer and exhibiting increased durability. Overall we felt that this is a string suited to all-court players that benefit from a string with some added power, but want reliable performance that is common with solid-core construction.

Please note: String will look thicker than normal. Once you start stringing your racquet, it will play and feel like a 16L gauge. Ashaway recommends stringing Monogut ZX at 10-15% lower than traditional nylon, but no higher than 60 pounds.
