String Quiz Challenge of the Decade

Ashaway Racket Strings
It has been 10 years - January 2001 - since our last Racquet String Quiz ran in Squash Magazine. While many of the basics haven't changed, there have been a number of important developments in squash string since then. So I thought it would be a good time to publish an updated quiz. A few questions have been included from the 2001 quiz, but overall, this quiz is a bit harder: I figure, after an additional decade of reading this column, you all ought to be experts by now!
Take this "Challenge of the Decade" quiz and impress all with your squash string knowledge. Please limit one entry per household.
Completed quizzes must be submitted by March 31st, 2011. All those receiving a passing grade of over 70 will receive a free set of one of Ashaway's new strings. 100%+ correct will receive a special mention in the April column. (Iíve added in the extra credit question to give you a little boost.) Please try to complete the quiz on your own. Referring to past columns is okay, but please don't discuss with your friends or stringer. Good luck and stay tuned for answers in my next column here on the web site, or in the April issue of Squash Magazine!
