YTEX Hexagon-X - Strings Comparison Table
I have a team mate that will only hit with rpm blast. I put this in his racket at same tension as the blast. He said it didn't feel the same but he liked it. Said it was much better than a lot of others he had tried, had much confidence with shots. This is the best alternative to the high priced string and he did agree seem to hold tension better.
I love the Hexagon X in pearl red. It give mal an amazing control and a good spin. It’s easy on the arm.
Hexagon X. Wow what a great string. Incredible power and spin. Doesn't lack any control either. Have been a Big Banger Alu fan for a long time. I have found it's replcement! The colors are awesome. Made my old pro-staff come alive. Strings stay in place and don't seem to be grooving to badly after 2 matches. Really impressive. One of my opponents this past weekend said that the red color was intimidating I. Itself lol. It does look great. My suggestion if stringing a complete set is to drop 3-5 lbs. I did pre-stretch before stringing. Will be play testing other YTEX strings soon! Thank you Ivor for bringing a great product at even better value!!!!
The power and control is very good.
The one exception is that the is string does not have a large sweet spot.
I have this really great string now. I knew that there was going to be different, but not by this much. Even my coach said there's a big deference in string. 1st color us great, then my first few swings and i noticed my ball began to kick up higher after first bounce. I stopped a few times kept looking at racket. The string sounds totally different. It not a bad thing. But when i began to serve my ball was turning more and kicking higher. Can't wait to compete and win over and over with these new strings.
The string shows great control. I also believe that it displays good tension maintenance.
Soft co-poly strings....nice amount of spin as well! Love the color as well!! Ytex keep bringing us more great products!!
With my heavy hitters this string lasted no more than 1 to 2 days maximum. When I blended it with synthetic gut in the crosses, it lasted longer. This was in a Blade 98S which is a broader pattern. Wonder if a 15g might help?
