We like the control and power of Square-X. The strings are also very durable for a poly.
Nevermind that the color scheme of the Terracotta blends wonderfully with my Radical Pro, but the amount of control and precision I get with this 5-sided poly is fantastic. It is not the softest poly in the YTEX lineup, but I almost prefer the pop I get from this string. It plays similarly to the ProTour as far as feel of the ball coming off the racquet, but add the bonus power and spin. The only thing I think ProTour has the edge on PentaPower is the tension maintenance. Protour definitely has the edge there. I tend to restring my sticks every 2-3 weeks anyway so that has not been an issue for me. So if you want an all-around high performance shaped poly, I can not say enough good things about PentaPower. RIP the Terracotta variant.
I have used many strings in my 40 years playing tennis. I am a 4.0/4.5 player and I can say without a doubt these are the best strings I’ve played with yet. I strung them at 58/54 lb tension and I can feel the ball extremely well. It’s amazing what strings can do to your game. I have recommended these strings to every player I know. Try them once and you will never go back to what you use.
I now have the white, blue, and red Dri-fit shirts and love them!!! Quality short at a good price; and, I get to answer questions about “what is YTEX?” when I play tennis!
Just wish there were more color options in stock for a size medium!
This was the first YTEX string that I fell in love with. Great spin, control, and power. I just put this string in a client's racket for the first time. He loved it!!! I am torn between this string and the Triangle Twisted Purple to use in my personal rackets. I will have to keep debating with myself over which of these awesome strings is the best for my game. I am a solid 4.0 all-court/baseliner that hits a very heavy ball on both forehand and backhand. I feel like this string gives me just a little more spin than the Triangle Twisted Purple.
I was pleased with these strings, but I need to give them another playtest at a lower tension. I originally strung my racket at 55lbs, will be playing with these strings at 46 lbs in the next few days. I will update my review then.
Played with this string one time with tension at 55 lbs. Was not a fan. Followed the suggestion of Ivor and lowered the tension to 46lbs. This is now my personal choice for playing. Great bite, awesome control, amazing easy power. I will continue to use this string until I find another YTEX string that I love more. It is a really close race now with Triangle Twisted Purple and the Hex-X Red, both are amazing strings. I have had no arm problems playing with this string. YTEX strings are some of, if not the, softest co-poly strings available.
Super shirt , Cool, durable and fits perfectly can't beat the price point. I will buy another. Thanks Ytex.
These strings played great and gave me alot of spin. They did start to make my elbow hurt, but I'm not young and play 5 times a week, so I need to stay away from co-poly strings. But people who love and can handle poly, will love these.
I really like these strings! They play very solid and are really durable and have a great feel! They also helped my elbow pain go away. I've had some with Co Poly strings, but I don't have pain with these strings!! Highly recommend.
These strings are great! They have made my elbow pain go away! I had pain with the Co-Poly, but these have fixed my pain. They also play great and feel solid. They are very durable as well.. You will get many matches out of them.
Strung this Hexagon-X Pearl Red string at 55 lbs (3 lbs higher than the recommended Ytex tension for an OS racquet with 16 mains) because I thought the Quadro Twist string played a little bouncy (too soft and like a trampoline) at the lower tensions. The string felt great and met my expectations based on its high ratings for power, spin and control. The high rating for durability cannot be confirmed yet since the racquet was strung only recently but I do not doubt that it will meet or exceed my expectations for that quality. The color of the string is gorgeous!
After being super impressed with Hexagon - X Pearl Red, I couldn’t wait to try Protour Blue 1.20mm in my T-Fight 305 XTC racquet. Protour Blue had a crisp feel WITHOUT ANY JARRING SENSATIONS! My racquet has a 18 / 19 string pattern and Protour Blue matched the control my stringbed offers. The only time I over hit was when I was late. I was please with the feel, spin and length of my shots. The feel of the ball coming off the racquet was so pleasant… where was this string earlier in my life?? My YouTube channel “THE TENNIS JONES” will be doing a review in the near future. Great job YTEX 😀🎾
We have been using Quadra twist for over 10 years. It is great for the whole family and have really loved it’s spin, power and durability - thank you Ytex!
Everything you want out of a poly string, you will get out of Square X!
I recently received my 2 reels of Quadro Twist black that I ordered and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! I previously was using Square X in my Wilson 98, strung up at 50 pounds. Surprisingly, I find that the Quadro plays with a little more trampoline affect to it. So i string it at 55 pounds. I’m able to FIRE the ball with hella spin on it. I’m getting kick served to jump a foot over 6 feet tall guys’ heads. I love both Square X and Quadro Twist black. I’m gonna try a hybrid setup with the two strings next time and see how that feels. But since I like both strings so much, I’m positive that setup will not be disappointing!
I used this string for the first time.
My racket is Angell's 97 320g. The tension was set at 45-43. The stability and milding sentiment were good.
I strung at 45, had almost no break-in time. I swing thru completely and the spin pulls that ball down. I really love this Quadro Twist string.
I got my YTEX Dri-Fit shirt with the starter box. The shirt expels moisture quite well, looks and feels great. I will buy more shirts and the Dri-Fit jacket for our cold winter season in Finland 😀🎾
