Do you think that TW will ever get Yonex Tennis string?

We used to carry Yonex string. I'm currently using the Yonex 850 Spin and the 850 Pro. I like the feel of both. I will check with our buyer to see if we can bring some of this in.

Thanks Chris.

Chris, Is the 850 Pro very durable and what string would you compare it to that TW carries?

I would compare the 850 Pro to NRG2. I have found it to be very durable, but I'm not particularly hard on strings. I can usually get pretty good longevity out of most multifilaments and even natural gut strings.

Thanks Chris. Do you use the 850 as a hybrid or an all 850 pro job?

What tension do you string yours at by the way? If I added 3 grams of lead tape each at 10 and 2 O'clock would it make that much difference in pulling the sweet spot up? Also how much lead tape would I have to put under the grip to counter balance it to make the racquet back to its original balance?

I string my racquets at 62lbs. I have not tried this string as part of a hybrid yet. When using gut I string @ 65lbs, when using poly @ 58lbs.
To keep the balance similar, just add to the handle what you add to the head. However, I would try hitting with the weight in the head only at first and see how you like it.
As a rule, only change one variable at a time. That way you can easily tell whether the change is working for you.

Is the 850 Pr0 a multifilament string or a solid core synthetic string? Would it make a good cross string cause im looking for a good multifilament for the crosses on a hybrid.

The 850 Pro is a multi. I have not used it in a hybrid yet.

Chris, TW.

Chris, I mean would it be good to use in a hybrid. Im looking to make a hybrid but i cant decide on the crosses. I was wondering if it would be good. What other multis would you compare it too?

On a scale of 1-10 what would you rate the Yonex Tour 850 Pro and Spin playability ans Durability? Also what does the Packaging for the Yonex Tour 850 Spin look like. Ive seen what the Tour 850 Pros looks like but not the spin.

I used to use the Yonex Tour Super 850 Soft 16L string. It was an awesome string, especially in stiff racquets. Great feel and shock absorption, better than gut IMHO. Too bad TW doesn't carry it.

We are placing an order to bring in Yonex string again. Look for it to be added to the site soon.

Chris, TW.

Thanks Chris. Can't wait to get some.

Is the Tour 850 Pro the only Yonex String TW is getting. If not what others?

TW Staff

We will be getting the Tour 850 Super and the Tour 850 Spin.

Chris, TW.

07-14-2004, 09:40 PM
Thanks Chris. Isn't the 850 super supposed to have really good spin potential since it has a "power-spin coating"? I guess that means the 850 spin lets you put a whole lot of spin on the ball.

Also on a scale of 1-10 what would you give both in playability and durability.

Thanks again.

There are two versions of the 850 - one with the Spin coating and the other without.
The Spin is currently one of my favorite synthetic strings. If a firm playing gut were a 10, I'd give the Spin an 8.5. Durability is not usually an issue for me.

Thanks Chris, Is the one with the spin called Tour 850 Spin or Pro?

TW Staff

The one with the Spin coating is called Spin.

If I type in Yonex string on the search it finds the 850 spin. It wont let me look at it but it will let me order it? When will it be available to be seen?

We have this string ordered and are awaiting shipment. It should be visible within the next 10 days.

Chris, TW.

Is there an update to the status of the Yonex string?
It doesn't appear to be available yet at TW, I play with the 850 Spin and love it, I would like to order from TW rather than other sites.

Coming soon?

Yonex strings offer the same benefits as Yonex racquets.
Yonex is the only racquet manufacturer to produce both racquets and strings in our own Japanese factories, and we bring to both the same reputation for excellence in engineering and attention to quality and consistency.

Tour Super 850 Pro, "The Choice of Elena and Monica"
Yonex' exclusive new "Power-Spin Coating" will generate superior spin while maintaining the response and feel of natural gut.

Tour Super 880 Ti Soft, "No more pain on your arm!"
Each hollow core filament works like a power condenser, storing the impact energy. Our Power-Tunnel construction provides outstanding shock absorption and maximum energy transfer.

1. ATG-850
2. ATG-850P
3. TG-80SPN
4. TG-70
5. ATG-880Ti

6. TG-50

1. ATG-850 Tour Super 850 16L gauge (1.30 mm) Feel of Natural Gut Super Power and Response

2. ATG-850P Tour Super 850 Pro 16 gauge (1.32 mm)

3. TG-80SPN Tournament 80 Spin 16 gauge (1.28 - 1.38 mm) Ultimate Spin with Vectran

4. TG-70 17 / 16L Tournament 70 17 / 16L TN: 17 gauge (1.25 mm) RG: 16L gauge (1.27 mm) Solid Feel - 2 gauges available

5. ATG-880Ti Tour Super 88 Ti Soft 16L gauge (1.30 mm)

6. TG-50 Tournament 50 16L gauge (1.27 mm) Durability

Number 5 or 1 is probably closest to gut in playability.
