MonoFireTM XL Polyester Monofilament Tennis String From Ashaway Is More Elastic / Playable Version of String Favorite

New Reel Length Offers 50% More String
for Just 25% More Cost

Monofire XL
The new MonoFireTM XL polyester monofilament tennis string from Ashaway Racket Strings combines maximum durability with enhanced playability, all at an economical price. Designed with greater elasticity than Ashaway's original MonoFire string, MonoFire XL provides increased resilience for improved overall string performance. For added value, MonoFire XL is now available in a 1000 ft (300 M) length -- over 50% longer than the familiar 660 ft (200 M) reel - for just 25% additional cost.
"With MonoFire XL, we have taken an already economical and durable string to the next level," said Steven Crandall, VP of Marketing at Ashaway Racket Strings. "By increasing elasticity, we have enhanced playability and resilience, giving chronic string breakers and power players the best of all worlds."

Like the original - a popular choice in the Ashaway line - MonoFire XL takes the traditional benefits of monofilament strings and improves upon them with added durability and firmness. MonoFire XL resists breakage at the hands of power players better than standard nylon strings, and its superior firmness also enhances control shots.

A polyester monofilament string that stands up to tough play, MonoFire XL features better tension holding properties than the original, for a more consistent stringing job. The string's proprietary coating serves two functions, lending more durability to the material and making it easier to string.

MonoFire XL is manufactured in Germany to Ashaway's exacting specifications. It is available in 17 (1.25 mm) and 16 (1.30 mm) gauges, and can be strung at up to 70 lbs. (32 kgs) of tension. MonoFire XL is available in both 660 ft (200 M) and 1000 ft (300 M) reels, and comes in a classic gold color.

Ashaway Racket Strings are made by Ashaway Line & Twine Mfg. Co., the only U.S. manufacturer of string for tennis, squash, racquetball, and badminton. Operated by the Crandall family since 1824, Ashaway has been making racket strings since 1949, and is responsible for several important technical innovations. Ashaway is the Official String of the United States Racquetball Association, the Professional Squash Association and the Women's International Squash Players Association. Ashaway Line & Twine Mfg. Co. also makes braided products for medical and industrial applications.
