    Any idea why Black Knight recommends only Ashaway strings for their racquets? Ashaway seems to be worse than some of the yonex strings (in the same price range) in the product reviews...

    they have worked out a corporate agreement to supply their strings to BK. the ashaways strings are average strings, nothing great about them, but they aren't absolute crap either. the rally 22 is a good mid-range string and price is quite reasonable.

    from a supply standpoint, it's lot easier for me to buy ashaway string than yonex since yonex corporate rarely sells to individuals, only stores and retail. BK will sell to individuals that are running stringing operations.

    And I thought there was some magic:eek:

    Well i went to Ashaway's distribution page, and who is the exclusive distributor of Ashaway in Canada? Black Knight of course....

    I guess i'll be using Yonex strings from now on since I can't get ashaway in any stores near me.
