Great string.Nice spin and feel...Look forward to a 17ga someday
I had a major shoulder surgery and my coach recommended I play with a softer string if I wanted to extend my ability to play tennis for a long time. He recommended the Y-tex Quadro Twist for control, power and spin in 2017 in my Head Speed Adaptive 98 16x19. I then switched racquets to the Babolot Pure Strike 98 with a 16x19 pattern strung with Wilson NXT 17g, great string but they don't last very long for the number of balls I hit per week. Initially, I re-strung the racquet at 54lbs with Qudro Twist but I could not replace the feeling I had with the NXT. My coach recommended Hex-X and tried that at 54lbs and the feeling was better but still needed tweaking. In the last two string replacements, I was advised to change the Hex-X tension to 48lbs. This gives me a more connected feeling to the ball as opposed to the 54lbs without loss of control. I feel the spin rate increased proving more topspin for kicks and devastating cut shots. Longevity is not a questions at all, when I retested the tension before restringing, string tension was at 40lbs that's pretty impressive after 9 months of hitting, multiple leagues plus practices. I will continue to pursue tensions for optimal performance and I may try the Quadro twist again at 48lbs as a comparison at the diameter of the strings is the same at 1.25mm.
I string these strings in my pro staff 97 @54 lbs and absolutely loved them. They had virtually no breaking time and after 35+ hours of tennis they are still going strong. They have lost some tension after about 10 hours but haven’t lost much after that. Control and spin was amazing letting me swing out on balls that I would have to push before with other strings. Amazing strings
I really like these strings, they give so much spin to the ball. The strings are just really good.
Good durability and power with these strings
I’ve tried tons of variety and types of tennis strings, and these strings are one of a kind. They have the softness, feel of natural gut, and have the spin and bite of a poly. One of a kind strings and my choice of string!
These are actually my favorite strings of all time and I tried a lot of strings. But these strings give the spin and comfort that you want. Love them.
Check out the video to see why choosing YTEX is the best choice. You won’t find a better string around!
