    Default New Winex Models - Zipper Series

    Here's the latest from Winex. Not sure who/where the models are available but it is up to individual distributors to decide if they are willing to bring the models in for their region.

    They use this in tennis on some rackets as well... I have seen a weird racket like this before, unknown brand...
    The idea is to make the 'stringbed more lively' because the string are woven against each other tighter.... Or something liek that.
    They are a bitch to string, I can tell you that. (the rick is to always opt for the 'hard' weave, then they come out right)

    1. both the silver and silver/black looks nice to me

    2. yes, the zip-zap type racket indeed is a pain to string, make sure leave a bit extra length for cross...

    what does that actually mean though?
    and does it actually improve the performance in any way?

    what is actually means? It's marketing
    never played with the racket I strung that had those grommets...
    The concept is that, when you string the 'hard weave' the string are 'woven' in to each other better...

    It's all very vague, and I doubt it works miracles...

    Wow, I can't imagine myself trying to string that racket. It must be such a pain to string and have a confusing pattern.

    Is this the latest models from Winex ? Both the 88 hole and the Zig zag stringing has been available in other brand for a long time.

    Ferrerkiko, not too sure where to get Winex in Singapore but if you are keen to try the Zig zag stringing, you can try the Z9000 matrix from http://www.extreme-power.org/rackets.htm

    You could check with Mr. Lim of Artric Sports phone: 67536486. He's currently selling the aero rapier series (arcsaber10 clone) but believe its sold out.
