Comments: Fantastic string. It has it all. Power, ball pocketing, arm friendliness, durability, to name a few. I think
it's wrong to compare this with a poly. The elongation is like a soft multi, yet the durability is close to a poly. I first tried MonoGut
ZX full bed on my Microgel Radical OS and it feels weird. Then I used it on the mains with Isospeed Control Classic 16 on the
crosses. Now it's a million dollar hybrid. There is one caveat though! You have to double or triple pull since the string keeps
relaxing during stringing. Ashaway acknowledges it. I would recommend every serious tennis player should try it out. I am a 3.5-
4.0 doubles player and a USRSA certified stringer.
Comments: I like this string. It is soft on the arm, powerful, good spin, does not need straightening, and holds
tension. Plays a bit like a poly but also very soft and powerful.
Comments: Be sure you are commenting on the Zyex Monogut, rather than the Monogut. There is a big difference.
The Zyex Monogut is softer and has better feel. It's a great string, though more expensive than the Monogut. Zyex Monogut has
nearly the durability of polys and impressive feel. I string it at 54 lbs and it plays very similar to natural gut. The only strings that
play as well and are not natural gut are Wilson NXT and Tecnifibre Biphase. The Zyex Mongut lasts 3 times as long as either.
Comments: I absolutely love this string. It gives me great pop on flat serves. My kick serve kicks and my
groundstrokes have great topspin and my slice bites. I just recently had rotator cuff surgery and played with a poly string. This
string is a little much as a full bed and can definitely feel a bit harsh. However, if you put this string in the mains with a soft syn
gut or multi in the cross, it plays amazingly well. I strung mine in a Prince EXO3 Rebel 98 at 54 pounds in the mains and 57
pounds in the crosses with Ytex YTouch (similar to Wilson Sensation).
Comments: I like this string a lot but why do the crosses move in both directions (up and down). The verticals
move. I've been stringing for 30 years while never experiencing this phenomenon with any other string. I can't find an
anywhere on the internet.
Comments: To me, this string played like any soft poly. Very, very similar to a Polyfibre or MSV string. I have a wrist
injury and I need a soft string bed, I was hoping for a nice control string that didn't make my wrist hurt. Ashaway Monogut is not
To mention the word "gut" in the description of this string, should be criminal.
