The Ashaway MonoGut ZX Pro 17 string offers players gut-like response and power in a package that is durable and tension stable. This string utilizes an advanced material known as Zyex which has an inherently low dynamic stiffness. This results in better energy return to the ball and a more responsive feel than polyester or nylon based strings. The absence of polyester additives decreases stiffness and improves string elongation, resulting in natural gut like playability that has better tension maintenance than other polyester or nylon offerings. The Zyex monofilament construction offers better durability and resistance to conditions like humidity and moisture compared to natural gut. The 17 gauge diameter trades a slight reduction in durability for maximum feel and responsiveness. Frequent stringers will enjoy added value per string job by purchasing the 360 foot reel option. All court players in need of a responsive string with excellent tension maintenance, power and comfort will enjoy Ashaway MonoGut ZX Pro 17. For more information on MonoGut ZX Pro 17, check out the Ashaway website.
Please note: String will look thicker than normal. Once you start stringing the racquet, it will play and feel like a 17 gauge. Ashaway recommends stringing Monogut ZX at 10-15% lower than traditional nylon, but no higher than 60 pounds.
Construction: 100% Zyex monofilament
