Ytex Strings
 
I was recommended this brand of strings from one of my former students who now plays for Florida Atlantic University and from one of the USPTA conferences I went to last year. I just ordered a few sets of the strings and am wondering if anyone else on hear has heard or tried them out. The have a wide variety of strings and all in different colors, which definitely caught my eye. Here is a link to their website in case anyone wanted to check them out.

A few months ago, Strinforum.net held Ytex string test, in which I took part as a tester.

Reviews of the participants are available in the database of the website of the organizer.

This could be useful information for you ...

Personally wasn't impressed.

Which strings did you test from Ytex?

Ytex Octo-Twist 1.25 ... 55/52lbs ...

copy of my review;

Strung in one piece by pro-stringer on Völkl C9 Pro. Played on clay - indoors and outdoors, with Head ATP balls. Break-in period wasn't required. Impressions – very soft, elastic and comfortable string, textured and twisted - but the spin was moderate. The crispness and the solid feel were missing; the string felt like muted, waxed one. The stringbed was large and there were no problems with off-centered shots. From the baseline – the string provided shots with the desired depth and power, but the control wasn't on a level! Serves – the flat ones were rarely long and therefore an extra wrist was required. On the net – the string provided excellent touch and feel, but required an extra slice to achieve accuracy. During all that 8 hours of play, I didn't notice significant tension loss. There was no string movement. IMPO, the string has to be used as a cross with other stiff co-poly. Bottom line: Soft all-round string with a lot of comfort and feel, but do not string it on a soft frame - every advantage has its drawbacks. Strung as a fullbed, the Octo Twist will not work for big hitters and top spin players.

I also test Green Octo-Twist, as an Sr player who likes a softer poly, it was fine full bed for me.

I've used the trivolution...mediocre. Nothing special.

The Quadro Twist got an outstanding review in the RSI playtest last year.

This brand seems to have fallen through the cracks.
There has been little buzz since then.

Quadro twist. Just an average twisted poly to me. Average pop, not much spin production, mediocre feel.

Don't mean to be negative, but I had to cut this one out. Just didn't like it, really.

Great surprise. Excellent combo of feel, control and power (in this order). I want a reel.

I tested it out as well, and didn't find anything that spectacular about it. I had a thread on here for reviews of it.

Well I was looking theough their website and was impressed by their wide selection of polys and the price maxing out at 105. I am sucker for colored string as well, especially for the price.

tennisaddict2223 01-27-2013 02:36 PM

Has anyone tried their protour line of strings?
