You’ve asked us for an 18 gauge string… and we've listened!
We selected our popular SQUARE-X string to introduce our first 18 gauge with but be careful… this one has edges nearly sharp enough to shave with
The SHARP is our square-shaped string but designed to be thinner with super sharp edges. I can tell you now, that this string will be a nightmare for stringers but a DREAM for players!
This string is a very soft co-polyester and easy on the arm like most of our co-polys.
The SHARP gets an A+ in most departments, effortless power; incredible feel; control, and that “wicked” spin. However, with its sharp edges and being a thin 18 gauge, it’s not the most durable co-poly from our line.
The SHARP is ideal for those players looking to get what feels like “an illegal advantage” when it comes to spin.
I recently switched to Ytex from Hiper-G. I loved this Ytex Square-× Sharp 18 ga string. I feel the balls better and get lots of spin.
The best strings I have used thus far. Nice pocket on groundstrokes, along with the added spin. Highly recommend you give them a try. I have to admit they are a bit hard on the fingers when stringing the racquet, yet they're worth it.
These have become some of my favorite strings ever. They offer a ton of spin potential from slice , topspin and kick serve all shots die more and jump more. it's really incredible! All of my clients that have used this string love it. it's soft enough to not hurt your arm.
I typically sting my rackets hybrid style. But I don't need to with these strings. a full bed is the BOMB!
I call these stings the CHEAT CODE. Tons of spin even without proper technique.
The only negative is the strings don't last too long. 2 to 4 weeks depending on the player. This is understandable given they are 18g. and they are a little slower to sting with.
Just try a set of these strings! thank me later
I have yet to use them, but my athletes have. They seem to really enjoy the extra bite. They have all noticed an increased amount of spin and pop coming off the floor. Especially in the serve. So far so good…have yet to hear about durability issues.
