With the partnership with Roland Garros, Babolat presents Xcel French Open 17, available in black, which will offer greater spin potential with slightly less durability compared to the 16 gauge version. This string is designed to offer players an ultra comfortable feel with added durability. Utilizing highly elastic polyamide fibers, this string offers greater elasticity and tension maintenance. Xcel features a polyurethane resin that increases comfort as well as durability by ensuring adhesion between individual fibers. The dual coating of polyurethane followed by polyamide provides a friction barrier, resisting string burning and notching to extend the life of the string. This string is highly recommended for players seeking ultimate comfort with additional durability.

Construction: Multifilament polyamide
Color: Black
Gauge: 1.25mm

Babolat French Open Comfort 17G Strings
5/5
I love these strings! I play with a Babolat Pro Drive Plus and like the control I get from a 17 gauge string. Not only has Babolat came up with a string that has excellent feel and comfort but the durability is amazing. Although I do hit somewhat of a flat ball, I have played in several 4.5 and Open tournaments since March and have not broken a string to date. Thanks Babolat, youve done us good with your new product!!!

Decent pop and good spin and control. Ive played with strings that have more of each, but I was impressed with how well this string maintained its tension level. I think that is something that is often overlooked and can contribute to inconsistencies in a players game.

Babolat XCEL FRENCH OPEN 17G TENNIS STRING
5/5
Great blend of power and control. I wasnt too sure about the 17g but theyve proven to be great strings. Probably wont last as long as a 16g, but I can deal with that and theyre worth it.

I recently switched to a Wilson racquet and had it strung with Xcel. I love this string! The new racquet is great too, but the combination with this string is awesome. I feel like I get super pop off this string, unbelievable spin and power. I would recommend giving it a try.
