Perfect when trying YTEX strings for the first time!
I have tried the Hexagon-X and the Quadro Twist. I love them both. I lean a bit more to the Quadro Twist because I hit a bit more top spin and my backhand slice has a lot more bite on it. The other players took notice.
The durability, spin and control from my own personal view from hitting Octo-twist is just amazing. I strung up a racket for my buddy (square-x) and he loves it... he said he loves the feel and control and noticed increased power with little effort. Overall gotta give these strings the highest rating as by these are the best strings I have hit!
Have never felt, so much Spin before using YTEX.
I love the hybrid that i created. I used touch natural in the mains and sintex in the crosses. the strings are very easy on the arm and added spin and power to my shots.
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 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.
