These are great strings, but I wish there was a 17 gauge on these
I have people excited to use it
It is a great shirt with great quality. I just wish there was a size in between men’s large and men’s xl because the large was too small, and the xl was too big
I find the Quadro to be the perfect blend of power & spin but also soft. Settles in quickly and has good life. It's my favorite string to date. A must try!
I used it in the old Federer Ncode '90 and it's very responsive. Ball bites on my cross court forehand as well as my slice backhand. Great feel & pounds the ball om my serves. Lower tensions & single string for this one.
I used it I'm the mains with the mint green synthetic gut & WOW! I played doubles tonight & hits very well. My volleys are even more crisp than the 4.0 rating I have. Gives heavy spin on my serves. I recommend the 17L & a little less tension for maximum results.
Octo Twist has great bite and the strings stay home. Took a couple of hits before it really settled in but great feel, bite and accuracy. Starter box is such a great deal to try out multiple strings and get into the the YTex world.
I was very impressed with the extra spin I got even hitting with a continental grip. I have great control and all the power I could ask you. The spin shows up best when I am serving. I play doubles primarily so touch and control are very important. I get these things from Octo-Twist. I have it in two racquets at 39 lbs.
Great shirt, comfortable, and absorbent
I ordered the YBOX and several other strings listed on the website. I talked to Ivor to get a first hand review of each of the additional strings I wanted to try and received excellent input on what each string was designed for and the player who might be interested in the YTEX string. I immediately put Octo-twist in my racquet at 55lbs of tension and played a match. I was hitting my serve where I wanted and it added significant kick to my kick serve. I have played three matches with the Octo-twist string and won all three matches. I do think my volley required some adjustment because to the responsiveness of this string compared to my normal syn-gut of Babalot. I will try to encourage my league and players to adopt this string. I am very happy with its playability. I will gladly report on durability once I give it a couple more matches. For reference I play 2-3 times a week and am USTA rated 4.5, photos to follow.
I started using these strings alone and was great pop control and power I string at 54 and was able to get tones of spin
This string is one of the best co polys out there. It has all the right amounts of spin control and power
These strings are amazing! It’s taken me over 2 weeks to write this review because I don’t want to get off the court with these babies. Pocket the ball beautifully. Butter on the arm. So nice in my 18x20 Speed Pro. Volleys and touch shots are a dream. This company seriously ROCKS. Incredible customer service from both Ivor and Sergio. Thank you guys!
I didn't test or play with string personally, but one of my long time NXT clients wants to make the switch and save money after trying MicroFiber X out this week. You'll probably want to as well. Great job YTEX!
If the power, spin, durability chart on the package was on the product page, I probably would have skipped ordering this offering from YTEX. However, I am glad that I didn't pass this string by and tried it out. I generally only play hybrid setups and hit for two hours last night with ProTour Orange in the mains and Forten Tournament Nylon strung at a center reference tension of 50.
Definitely one of the lowest power strings I've ever tried and it is just what I need. I've been trying hit with a much lower launch angle recently and this string is the prescription I've been looking for without having to adjust my swing mechanics. If you are use to a more lively string I recommend you string it 15-20% less to maintain the you hitting depth. In my first playtest I went 10% under my normal tension and it wasn't low enough to put the ball consistently deep enough in the corners. Other than that, the set up delivered an otherwise consistent play and response in stress situations. If you prefer playing with heavy sticks (12+ oz) this string is for you and me. I finally can swing out and have almost no fear of overhitting. Also, there is seemingly a lot more control than the packaging suggests. I won't be able to answer the durability question for a while since I want to play it 5# lower.
That said I'm definitely adding this string to my personal inventory and looking forward to playing matches with it next week after I dial in the tension.
Quadro Twist is one of the softest poly strings I've played with. As with most poly, I installed the first set 10% under my normal tensions. Unfortunately, that was too low. With my normal swing every ball landed consistently beyond my target point. I reinstalled a new set with the tensions 5# higher. Even at the higher tension QT possess ample power and excellent control for baselining. It really shines at the net delivering crisp volleys and awesome breaking movement on slice serves. As for durability, I've only had it on the court for the three hours, so that remains to be seen. Definitely will be stocking up on this string after I complete my playtest of two other strings I purchased.
Being a racquet stringer, I am always looking for a good string for a good deal. This is a very nice string for the price. I've used several different types of more affordable string and this one definitely took the cake. Most lower priced string loses it's tension in the first five minutes. I strung my racquet with this as a hybrid with hexagon-x. And it held it's tension! That alone would make me recommend this string. But it also feels good in the racquet as well!

I played and coached with Ytex Touch for two weeks and my joints never felt better! I thought I've played with comfortable strings before but this takes the cake.
Volleys - no wrist pain
Groundstrokes - no elbow pain
Serves - no shoulder pain
My only critique is the lack of spin from the strings; nothing you can't fit by hybriding or increasing the tension.
I would recommend to any Juniors or Senior athletes looking for more power.
Solid poly to play on in the heat.
Putting in these strings was a big change for me going from a very stiff kevlar hybrid to the Trivolution Black. This string was easy in the machine and came out looking great. I found them to feel very soft but with plenty of power. I didn't notice any difference in spin but all-in-all a very solid string. I think it would be a great half of a hybrid. Can't wait to recommend it to my customers!
I tried poly spin and pro tour strung at 58/60 it’s very solid but not stiff it’s crispy feel gives it a ping that feels good I’m a flat hitter and string tight as the ball wont fly. Most players would string looser for the top spin game.
I like the feel of the two polys together gives good control. As a USRSA stringer I would sting looser for my customers. Of course durable Ytex name is known for good playability. I mix Ytex polys to way I want to hit. If I’m feeding balls then I would loosen the tension about 4 pounds.
The president of YTEX will guide you to what string and tensions you should use for the game you play.
I recommend Ytex to players I string for.
Hopefully this helps you to choose Ytex for your next string
I enjoyed hitting with this string very much. It is a tad smaller gauge than the Hex-X black but 39 full bed in my Volkl V Feel 4 felt amazing. I enjoyed the black Hex-X but think this will end up being my favorite Ytex string.
Microfiber-X was very good quality, comparable to NXT in comfort. I strung my Volkl V Feel 4 at 57 full bed. The center cross string did seem to move about but it played well anyway. For the price, it will be one of the strings I recommend to my friends.
Had this on my racquet for about 6 weeks and I love how it plays! It’s also been super durable. I string racquets for our academy and the kids love it also.
