My Personal #1!

Octo Twist has been my favorite string for several years at this point! One of many wonderful co-polys from the excellent ytex catalog. It’s tough to beat the feel and playability of this string! Five stars for sure!

Great strings while they lasted

Just got threw with the octo-twist green 16 gauge. I hit with these strings twice in one day and unfortunately they broke in the second hit. In the first hit, which lasted about an hour, I really loved the strings, they definitely reminded me of Tour Bite but with more spin and maybe even more power. I felt great with these strings, every strike felt nice with the power and spin I sought. I was thinking these could be my new “go-to” strings. I used the same racquet and strings in my second hit of the day, and unfortunately the strings broke one hour into my hit. So that is basically 2 hours of play before these 16 gauge strings broke, which I’ve never experience with other strings. I was really liking them before they broke but 2 hours of play time is not quite durable enough for how often I play. I am. 5.0+ level former college player and I like to hit big with big spin for reference.

Feels a lot like the diadem solstice power but better!

Really enjoying these strings in my Blade

Wow, these strings are a perfect match for a weighted Blade 100L. The flex on the Blade has an RA of 69 and it feels it. These strings really smooth that out and offer up a little extra power. These strings also increase the spin potential and help take full advantage of the 16 x 19 string pattern. All of the Ytex strings have above average longevity and I know these will be no different. I have used these strings before in a 2021 Yonex Vcore and felt they were a little too muted. In the stiffer Blade they are perfect. I would say these strings would be ideal for stiffer racquets like a Pure Drive and Wilson Ultra. Did I mention the color which matches very nicely. Will buy more!!!

I have to play with them again.

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.

I tried Octo Twist for the first time. Not as soft or powerful as Quadro twist or Square X, But still comfortable. I just strongly a couple pounds looser than normal and I was able to get my normal pop on the ball. As usual, YTEX didn’t disappoint!

Spin and touch

Octo twist's softness allows for an easy stringing of the racket.
IT also creates a solid ball pocket to produce good directional control.
The twist and 8 sided string also grips the ball to create extra spin.
I combine it with Pro Tour Black to create a wicked spin producing combination.
Octo in the crosses at 48, Pro Black at 50 pounds in the vertical strings.

Those angles though

I have a lot of access to spin with these strings. I struggle to get depth with my swings. Maybe a 100" racquet is where they shine most. I can swing out on my serve without the ball flying out of control.
