Ashaway Rally® 21 Fire for Badminton, "A Great All-Round String With A Great Price to Quality Ratio." - Says Pro Stringer Magazine

Rally 21 Fire

In a recent blind string test conducted by the European Racquet Stringers Association (ERSA) and reported in Pro Stringer magazine, Ashaway's Rally 21 Fire badminton string scored good marks for playability, power, durability, and tension loss by a group of 40 ERSA member playtesters.
In a recent blind string test conducted by the European Racquet Stringers Association (ERSA) and reported in Pro Stringer magazine, Ashaway's Rally® 21 Fire badminton string scored good marks for playability, power, durability, and tension loss by a group of 40 ERSA member playtesters. Recently introduced to replace two older Ashaway badminton strings, and constructed using Ashaway's proprietary Beta Polymer, the 0.70 mm Rally 21 Fire string provides a 25% improvement in dynamic stiffness and elasticity over its predecessors, as well as a 25% improvement in knot and sheer strength. These improvements maximize shuttle speed, provide optimum strength and durability, and minimize tension loss for overall consistent performance.

"The Rally 21 Fire has more power and durability that the original Rally 21," said Pro Stringer. "Ashaway has made their classic nylon multifilament string much better, bringing it up a couple of notches. A great all-round string with a great Price to Quality ratio." ERSA playtesters also reported that Rally 21 Fire was very easy to string, weave and knot. No one had any problems or broke any string while stringing.

The European Racquet Stringers Association (ERSA) was founded in 2001 as a kindred organization to the United States Racquet Stringers Association (USRSA) and offers certifications in tennis, badminton and squash with levels up to Pro Tour Stringer. ERSA has over 3,000 members in over 30 countries including leaders of the racquet sports industry, racquet specialists, teaching professionals, sporting goods retailers, manufacturers, sales organizations and racquet sports enthusiasts. ERSA's Pro Stringer magazine is published in English, while ERSA's Stringer's Digest, Study Guides and Tests are available in French, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Dutch, and Czech.

Rally 21 Fire completes Ashaway's Fire line, said Crandall. Like the other strings in the Fire line, the multifilament core of Rally 21 Fire is constructed using Ashaway's proprietary Beta Polymer. Beta Polymer offers a number of benefits when used in racquet strings, including great strength and elasticity. It can also be formulated to optimize specific playing characteristics, which has allowed Ashaway to develop its entire line of "Fire" strings. But unlike the other Fire strings, Rally 21 Fire does not utilize Ashaway's trademarked ZyWeave™ core. The result is a traditional 0.70 mm string that is as strong as a standard 0.75 mm string, but plays and sounds like an even thinner string.

Designed for badminton players at all levels, Rally 21 Fire is available in both white and natural, and in either 10-meter sets or 200-meter reels. Recommended tension is up to 40 lbs. (18 kg).
