Ashaway Offers MonoGut® ZX and MonoGut ZX Pro Tennis String in Bulk Reels

-- Both popular strings now available in 360-ft (110 m) and 720-ft (220 m) reels, ideal for hybrid stringing.
-- 100% Zyex® monofilament construction increases elongation, decreases stiffness for easy playing, soft power.
-- Comfortable, arm-friendly performance ideal for stand-alone use or as part of a hybrid combination.

Ashaway, RI -- Ashaway Racket Strings has made its popular MonoGut® ZX brand tennis strings -- 16L gauge (1.27 mm) MonoGut ZX and 17 gauge (1.22 mm) MonoGut ZX Pro -- available in bulk reels for more efficient hybrid stringing. Of the two, MonoGut ZX Pro is a thinner lighter string, designed to provide even better elongation, snap-back and playability for players who do not require the added durability of the 16L gauge MonoGut ZX string. Both are of 100% Zyex® monofilament construction, which provides exceptional dynamic stiffness and gut-like playability. The total lack of polyester increases elongation and decreases stiffness for comfortable soft power.

"MonoGut ZX series strings remain soft at higher tensions, reducing impact shock," said Steve Crandall, Vice President of Ashaway Racket Strings. This comfortable, arm-friendly performance is what we mean by 'soft power.' MonoGut ZX series strings also provide better energy return than any other synthetic material. This means more power. The result is a powerful easy-playing string ideal by itself or as part of a hybrid combination."

Crandall added that players from all levels report that MonoGut ZX series strings also generate spin like the so-called high-tech polyesters. "Because of the strings' high elasticity and low coefficient of friction, players claim better snap-back for improved spin, better results from more compact strokes, and overall reduced impact shock and enhanced comfort." Crandall noted that few breakage problems have been reported, and quoted several players as saying: "Playing with this string is just easier;" "Great power and spin;" and "Totally different feel than when playing with other monos."

MonoGut ZX and MonoGut ZX Pro are designed for players seeking both gut-like playability and superior durability in a solid monofilament string, as well as for players using monofilament strings in hybrid stringing patterns. Both MonoGut ZX and MonoGut ZX Pro come in either a natural gut-like tan or fiery red. They are available in 40-ft (12 m) sets, and now in both 360-ft (110 m) and 720-ft (220 m) reels. Recommended stringing tension is up to 60 lbs. (27 kgs).
