Hey guys, I just tried the Ashaway Monogut freebie. Thanks to Steven Crandall and Ashaway BTW. I strung it up in a Prince CTS Synergy DB 24 MP(wow that's a mouthful) at 54 lbs which is 10% less than my usual tension. They recommend 10-15%. This is a really nice string. It compares very favorably to higher end polys. To me, it plays very comfortably, provides good power, excellent spin, control comparable to Ti-Mo, and very nice feel for touch shots. I played 2 sets today in the Atlanta heat and humidity, and it performed beautifully. Nice penetrating shots, excellent serves, nice stick on the volleys, no surprises. I remember hitting only a couple of balls long, and one was debatable :roll:. Anyway.....strings, tension and the like are very subjective areas for players, but this IMO is a very nice, cost effective string. Now, we'll see how it holds up.
