Video Review - From 5KTENNIS
If you are looking for a soft poly with incredible CONTROL and DURABILITY'...this is the string for you!
We want to give this string 10/10 in all departments and trust us it does live up to its hype. This string is 6 sided and gives you everything you would need from a string...power; superb tension retention with virtually no string movement; solid spin and then of cause the awesome control and durability. Feel free to play around with the tension on this one and string it low to get the max out of it!
Note: The black color on the Hexagon-X is 1.28mm (16g) where the red color is a bit thinner at 1.25mm (16Lg).
Length: 40ft/12m and 660ft/200m
Gauge: 16G (1.28mm)
Construction: Hexagonal-shaped co-polyester + carbon + special polyeolefin mix.
Advantage: Spin, Power, Durability and Control.
YTEX Hexagon-X - Strings Comparison Table
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.
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!
5 star!!!! Best strings I have ever played with in my 40 years of tennis !!!
Love love love the hex!!!!
My high school tournament players love the feel and durability of theses strings!!!
At first I was very skeptical about this string. I strung one of my student Yonex racquet at 47 lbs. After a couple of hours the string started to kick in with power,durability, spin and not forgetting the feel. I'm looking forward on getting more reel. Aloha
I have a WILSON BLADE 98 18X20. My mom introduced me to these strings and I love them. They last alot longer than what I used to use. Still trying to find the correct tension as I am currently stringing it at 54lbs...would love it if someone could tell me what I should string it at for Control as I generate enough power (sometimes too much). Over all great strings.
I installed these strings in another pair of students racquets that wanted spin durability and control and they were blown away from the start. I can honestly tell you try out any of the YTEX string line and don't look back at overpriced legacy brands, YTEX STRINGS modern strings for modern day play
