Ashaway MonoGut® ZX Black Tennis Strings Offer Versatility and Playability

ZyMax Black Family
Ashaway's popular MonoGut® ZX and MonoGut ZX Pro offer players versatility and a range of playing characteristics. Used alone or as part of a hybrid combination, both strings are of 100% Zyex® monofilament construction, which provides exceptional dynamic stiffness and arm-friendly gut-like playability. At 17 gauge (1.22 mm), MonoGut ZX Pro is a thinner lighter string, designed to provide better elongation, snap-back and playability, while the heavier 16L (1.27 mm) gauge MonoGut ZX string offers added durability while still providing excellent elongation and gut-like playability.
Two Zyex-based strings offer comfortable arm-friendly performance ideal for full string bed use or as part of a hybrid combination.

100% Zyex® monofilament construction increases elongation, decreases stiffness for easy playing, generates soft power.


Ashaway, RI - Ashaway's popular MonoGut® ZX and MonoGut ZX Pro offer players versatility and a range of playing characteristics. Used alone or as part of a hybrid combination, both strings are of 100% Zyex® monofilament construction, which provides exceptional dynamic stiffness and arm-friendly gut-like playability. At 17 gauge (1.22 mm), MonoGut ZX Pro is a thinner lighter string, designed to provide better elongation, snap-back and playability, while the heavier 16L (1.27 mm) gauge MonoGut ZX string offers added durability while still providing excellent elongation and gut-like playability.

"The MonoGut ZX Black family provides an excellent choice for both full string bed and hybrid stringing," said Ashaway Vice President Steve Crandall. "Rated #1 for arm-friendly performance on Tennis Warehouse, MonoGut ZX strings remain soft at higher tensions, reducing impact shock. This 'soft power' elasticity also allows MonoGut ZX series strings to provide better energy return than any other synthetic material. This provides excellent full string bed power without strain, and can also soften a hybrid string bed."

MonoGut ZX Black strings also generate spin like the so-called high-tech polyesters. Because of the string's high elasticity and low coefficient of friction, players claim better snap-back for improved spin, better results from more compact strokes, reduced impact shock and overall enhanced comfort. Crandall noted that few breakage problems have been reported, and quoted several players as saying: "Playing with this string is just easier;" "Great power and spin;" and "Totally different feel than when playing with other monofilaments."

MonoGut ZX and MonoGut ZX Pro are designed for players seeking both gut-like playability and superior durability in a solid monofilament string, as well as for players using monofilament strings in hybrid stringing patterns. Both MonoGut ZX and MonoGut ZX Pro Black are available in 40-ft (12 m) sets, and now in both 360-ft (110 m) and 720-ft (220 m) reels. Recommended stringing tension is up to 60 lbs. (27 kgs).
