Ashaway Kevlar Plus available in bulk

June 19, 2013

Ashaway, RI — Ashaway Racket Strings has now made its Kevlar® Plus tennis string available in bulk reels to allow players and stringers greater flexibility in hybrid stringing combinations for all racquet types and string patterns. Ashaway’s 1.25 mm (17 gauge) Kevlar Plus bulk reels are available in small reels of 360 feet (110 meters) and large reels of 720 feet (220 meters). Use of bulk reels minimizes string waste when stringing different hybrid patterns and racquet types.

Ashaway Kevlar Plus is becoming a popular choice for hybrid combinations among power hitters and chronic string breakers. Kevlar fibers provide a powerful string bed for heavy topspin players, while braided-in PTFE filaments produce a softer feel and enhance playability. Using braided Kevlar/PTFE main strings also maximizes durability and enhances string abrasion resistance to increase string life.

“Hybrid stringing continues to gain popularity, especially among string breakers and heavy hitters,” said Steve Crandall, Ashaway Vice President. “By adding very silky PTFE filaments to our braided Kevlar we’ve softened its feel and enhanced playability without sacrificing power, durability, or tension holding properties. By choosing their favorite cross string, players can get a customized hybrid with powerful playability, softer feel, superior spin capability, and maximum durability.”
