Players after gut-like performance with better durability and a more attractive price need to consider Ashaway MonoGut ZX Pro 17G. This string is built with a revolutionary material called Zyex which has an inherently low dynamic stiffness. Low Dynamic Stiffness results in better energy return to the ball and a more responsive feel than polyester or nylon based strings. The lack of polyester additives decreases stiffness and improves string elongation, giving it natural gut like playability that has better tension maintenance than other polyester or nylon offerings. The Zyex monofilament construction offers improved resistance to conditions like humidity and moisture as well as better durability compared to natural gut. The 17 gauge diameter trades a slight reduction in durability for maximum feel and responsiveness. Purchasing the 720 foot reel will provide frequent stringers with maximum value on every string job. Ashaway MonoGut ZX Pro 17 is an excellent string choice for all court players looking for excellent response and feel, balanced with solid durability and tension maintenance. 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 your 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
