Tennis monofilament polyester strings
Tennis monofilament polyester strings. What we need to know to avoid accidents.
This is a tennis string that, in the last 10 years, has become incredibly popular with tennis players.
Pro players like this string because it allows them to control the ball well. The rigid impact and good control trigger a special positive feeling. Their physique and their strength is at the top therefore they are less attentive to comfort and energy restitution (how much energy a string returns).
Not all Pro Players feel the same way, others use Hybrid strings to get a better mix of performance, especially more energy restitution.
Some examples of hybrid professional stringing:
- mains Iron Magic 1,28mm – crosses Maxi Fly 1,40mm
- mains Iron Axe 1,30mm – crosses Dinamic 1,35mm
In all cases, these players, wisely, all opt for limited use of stringing because they feel the need to change it when the pleasurable sensations and performances that enable them to win the match no longer match. At certain stresses, the strings quickly lose their characteristics and must be changed.
For all the other tennis players, without distinction of good or amateur, it is important to know the side effects that a bad use of Polyestere monofilament can produce.
- tendon muscle disorders in the arm, which if neglected involve the shoulders and back;
- premature fatigue;
- in the most serious cases the player must stop playing.
Unfortunately, recent accidents statistics are alarming. Not all tennis players react in the same way. Some resist resistance and string rigidity longer, but many end up needing expensive medical care.
If your choice remains the Polyestere monofilament, it is good to know that:
- cannot be used by young athletes. Much depends on their physical structure but it is always preferable to use multifilament or hybrid stringing;
- must be used at medium-low tension;
- it must be used for a limited period because the stringing quickly loses its energy return and must be replaced before breaking;
- it is advisable to use more comfortable Co-Polyesters with greater energy return such as: Protennis Black Magic and Silvery.
Some monofilaments of Co-Poliesteri recently introduced in the market, are less traumatic but also less performance, therefore they do not solve the problem of premature fatigue but accentuate it! If the string does not help you (it does not have a sufficient energy return), you will be more tired and you will be penalized during difficult encounters. We did a lot of tests assisted by Tennis Academies that cooperate with us: athletes who used programmed string cutting or hybrid stringing had a better percentage of wins in matches held on the third set.
As a Company specializing in the stringing trade, we have never stopped producing excellent multifilaments which are the best choice to avoid problems. However it seems that still too many tennis players are not happy with this.
To fully and widely respond to their needs, avoiding side effects, we have chosen:
- to produce a new generation of multifilament strings, precisely the bi-composites;
- to propose a wide range of HYBRIDS able to give the best mix of performances;
- to produce only Co-Polyestere monofilament with less traumatic impacts and good energy return.
New technologies and solutions
New bi-composite multifilament strings:
Edra gauge 1,32
Prodigy gauge 1,32/1,35
Them are located in an intermediate position between the Co-Polyester and the Multifilament.
They can be used in Full solutions (one complete stringing) and in Hybrid (differentiated stringing).
What do they have different from the other multifilaments?
- Contain a part of Polyestere;
- have a better tension hold;
- the reticle is more stable.

Some of our successful solutions:
Mains Black Magic – crosses Prodigy: it is particularly suitable for the player who does not want to give up the control of the polyester but wants to drastically reduce the trauma. The strings reticle remains stable.
Mains Silvery – crosses Prodigy: it is particularly suitable for the player who wants more power than the total Co-Polyester stringing without the danger of trauma or premature fatigue. The reticle remains stable.
