The Kirschbaum HELIX monofilament is helically wound in a multistage twisting process, followed by an additional heat setting treatment. The twisting process provides increased string elasticity for excellent playability and lively hitting feel. The additional heat treatment stabilizes the polymeric properties of the tennis string for better control and higher tension maintenance.

Top Spin Tennis View: Our string tester Greg says: I really liked using this string. It was durable, had great bite and helped for hard hitting shots - great for baseliners.
