    Hi everyone i am planning to buy Tecnifibre X-one biphase RED and im just wondering since its a coloured string wouldnt the colour fade? So lets say the original colour is natural would the red start to chip and fade after playing?

    Considering the short life of X-One, I wouldn't worry about the colour fading if I were you. :)

    It does fade, however.

    Then buy the natural.
    I don't quite get the color thing.
    It's cool to match or have school colors, but really, what's more important?
    Cosmetics or performance?
    It's nice if you can get both.

    The red is terrible, and the natural, while good in a short window, becomes terribe soon there after. Go with multi-feel, NRG2 or Xcel if you want a top-end multi. My opinion only, of course.
