Zyex as a material is softer (less stiff) and more elastic (thus more powerful) than nylon. It's about midway between natural gut and nylon in terms of both those characteristics.
Sounds intriguing. I could only find one place that sells it... and they list it at $15 a pack. For that price I am inclined to let others test the Ashaway marketing claims.
