Comments: My daughter had been a top 10 junior in Florida. At the age of 12, she had to drop to 6 hours a week
on court due to wrist and elbow tendinitis. Her growth spurt and joint hyper-mobility worsened the tendinitis. Soft strings helped,
but south Florida humidity and damp clay courts shortened the life of gut strings to about 3 hours. Having noticed that Tennis
Warehouse rated Ashaway MZX Pro as the softest non-gut string, I had my daughter try it and she liked it right away. She has built
up to 24 hours a week on court and has been injury-free since she began using Ashaway MZX Pro 18 months ago. In addition to
being the softest non-gut, Ashaway is much more lively than any string that is of comparable durability. I string her racquets at
58 mains, 57 crosses, matching the tension I used for natural gut.
Comments: I am using this string as a cross with Wilson NG 17g, great combo. Highly recommend, but the ZX
into the gut too quickly for this to be the go to string bed. It is an interesting string in that TWU list ZX and gut as 2 of the softest
strings, but this combo plays crisp, which is what I like about it. Soft on the arm but with crisp power. Gonna try the 16g and see
how long that lasts. I think Wilson or Ashaway should sell this Hybrid.
Comments: This is a great tweener string. It is as comfortable as natural gut and as durable as polyester. The red
has a softer feel than the natural one. I think a full bed at 55-59 lbs is the ideal tension for this string.
