Ashaway Brings Zyex® Monofilament Technology to its Tennis Hybrid Line with Two New Crossfire® Strings

New Crossfire ZX
Ashaway Racket Strings has extended its well-known Crossfire® line of hybrid tennis strings to include its increasingly popular 100% Zyex® monofilament strings. Additions to the line include Crossfire ZX, which combines Ashaway's 17 gauge braided Aramid / PTFE Kevlar® +Plus mains with MonoGut® ZX Pro cross strings; and Crossfire ZX Tour, which includes Ashaway's co-polymer string, MonoGut Original, mains with MonoGut ZX for the crosses.

Both strings add a new dimension of soft power, spin and durability


Ashaway, RI - Ashaway Racket Strings has extended its well-known Crossfire® line of hybrid tennis strings to include its increasingly popular 100% Zyex® monofilament strings. Additions to the line include Crossfire ZX, which combines Ashaway's 17 gauge braided Aramid / PTFE Kevlar® +Plus mains with MonoGut® ZX Pro cross strings; and Crossfire ZX Tour, which includes Ashaway's co-polymer string, MonoGut Original, mains with MonoGut ZX for the crosses.

"Our 100% Zyex MonoGut strings are increasingly known for their ability to generate power and spin, and their soft, gut-like feel," said Steve Crandall, Ashaway Vice President. "Aramids and co-polymers are known for their stiffness, durability and ability to generate spin. Combining these two adds a new dimension to the hybrid spectrum, and offers players added combinations of exceptionally soft power, spin control and durability."

Crossfire ZX is the lighter of the two hybrids, combining 1.25 mm Kevlar +Plus mains for superior durability and control with MonoGut ZX Pro crosses. 17 gauge Kevlar +Plus is a blend of braided Aramid and silky soft PTFE fibers that softens the string's feel. The 1.22 mm MonoGut ZX Pro is a 100% Zyex monofilament that has the closest dynamic stiffness to natural gut of any synthetic string and sets the benchmark for soft power and spin.

For heavier hitters is Crossfire ZX Tour. This hybrid utilizes 1.27 mm MonoGut Original co-polymer monofilament strings in the mains for excellent durability and enhanced spin with 1.27 mm MonoGut ZX for the cross strings. This 100% Zyex monofilament maximizes power and improves the feel of the ball. The Crossfire ZX Tour hybrid allows players to experience similar playability and performance to the co-polymer/natural gut hybrid that is so popular on the tour, but with the extra advantage of optimum durability.
