Players who want the playability, power and comfort of natural gut without the price premium will enjoy Ashaway Monogut ZX Pro 17 string. This string utilizes an advanced material known as Zyex. Zyex has an inherently low dynamic stiffness, resulting in increased energy return to the ball and a more responsive feel than polyester based strings. The absence of polyester additives increases string elongation while decreasing stiffness, 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 offers the ultimate in feel and response while trading a slight reduction in durability. Ashaway Monogut ZX Pro 17 is an excellent option for players who want the durability of a monofilament but with better response, tension stability, power and comfort than a poly can offer. 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.
