even if you string them at 22lbs and play twice a week.. you'll run out of bg80 before ashaway releases their Zgut
Darn it, I just broke my last set on a bloody mishit... I am soo done with that cp6000's half-oval-head...

There isn't such a material as zyex, that is the company who makes the material. Zyex Ltd.
The material in these new strings is actually Polyetheretherketone or PEEK for short.
Its the same stuff Yonex have put in their new arcsaber 10 racket shaft
Dinkalot should try this racket to see if he can break the shaft.

so..... the arc10's shaft hold tension very well?
has it got a grippy texture?
Basematerial is very important, but it's the way it's produced into strands (fibers) that determine it's property's as well...
so there's no "material" named zyex...but there is a product named zyex...
Being the curious lad I am, I wonder how they produce those strands...

The shaft doesn't hold tension, I mean It must be real strong e.g won't break

I mean "a stick of it going through the center of the shaft?"

How about the cost of the strings?
03-31-2008, 11:06 AM #45
Don't know, prob half the price of Yonex

if it's PEEK then it should be marketed as "PEEK-A-BOO" XD

Yonex should learn how to name polymers properly. The use of the word PEF in the ArcSaber 10 is a misuse of the name polyethylene (PE). There is no such name in polymer as PEF. It is PE fiber, just like PE resin (the raw material polyethylene resin). There is another polymer polypropylene (PP). I hope they will not use words like PPF for polypropylene fiber again.
It is like using UHMGF to stand for ultra high modulus graphite fiber-there is no such conventional use of the term.

The new name for Ashaway new string.....

Just put in this new x-1709 string last week at 24lbs, in a woven 7.
Its a very nice string
At first I didn't like it, but then It was really nice. Smashing was crap though. Also the tension still feels the same.
Hopefully ashaway release a thinner gauge version
