The ultimate in durability and spin, Ashaway Kevlar 17g Reel combines aramid fibers with a textured, braided surface for increased bite on the ball. Designed for chronic string breakers seeking durability above all else, this string is most often used in hybrid applications along with a synthetic gut cross in order to keep the stiffness at a reasonable level. The stiffest type of string available, Kevlar also provides the most solid feeling at impact. But, in order to gain the incredible durability offered, the sweet spot size and elasticity are decreased. Our testers felt that this string was best suited to players hitting with extreme pace and topspin who were willing to sacrifice feel and comfort for durability.The higher gauge will provide added feel and a slight decrease in durability.

 

Construction: 100% Braided Kevlar

Gauge: 17G / 1.25 mm

Color: Natural

Length: 360 ft / 110 m

This is a great string for string breakers. Lasts way longer than Luxillon, and it also bites the ball similar to the RPM blast. However, the string stretches as it wears. It easily loses 5+ lbs of tension as it wears before breaking. I usually have to cut it out. If this string didn't stretch so much, it would really be good.

Looking for a durable string that suites your budget - this is it!!! I'm a frequent string breaker, play 4.5, all I wanna say is it's worth it. I used this string as the mains and the liberty as the crosses. Great combo!!!
