    Default Zymax strings

    Just been informed by my stringer that the new Zymax strings from Ashaway are here.
    62mm and 67mm.
    Anyone tried these? Not cheap though so thought I'd ask.
    Thanks.

    I've just ordered a 200m reel of each of them. They also do a 0.70mm version, but couldn't justify splashing out on 3 reels. They have a special offer on at the moment where the 2nd reel is half price, so they price is actually not bad - 75 + VAT for 2 x 200m reels.

    They're out of stock right now as the stuff is just flying off the shelves, but I'm told it'll land on my doorstep in the next 7 days.

    Watch this space...

    The U.S. market is different than the European and Asian markets. They usually get more options and a greater diversity of strings.

    But yes, in this case, ZM in 0.62mm, 0.67mm, and 0.70mm are all available in the U.S.

    I got mine from www.ashaway.co.uk

    The USA site www.ashawayusa.com doesn't seem to have been updated with the ZyMax badders strings yet - I suggest you contact them & ask, contact details are on the website.

    Sir Dink, have you reviewed the ZyMax strings yet?

    Tension? And how does it compare to your usual string?

    www.ashaway.co.uk are still awaiting reels of ZM62 & ZM67, but very kindly sent me a packet of each for evaluation - they landed on my doorstep this morning

    Well, my stringing tension is peculiar but, since you asked.
    Cab 20SP 3U racket.
    26 Mains.
    36 Crosses.
    Works for me.

    My former stringer who has high credentials, having been one of the official stringers at Wimbledon during the Tennis Championships worked out that by using 26mains/36crosses the load is spread evenly to 31lbs. And the strings feel bouncy as opposed to stiff or hard apart from the sweet spot.
    And no, never has a racket caved in or any other issues.
    Been using this now for many years.
    I wouldn't trust any stringer with a machine with this. Too many cowboys out there. My present stringer(the other guy retired) is really good. Also best done on an electronic machine calibirated properly.
    And I have used BG66 with no problems.
