Ashaway Squash Strings

The premium squash string and choice of world class players. David Palmer (world champion 2006 & 4 times british open champion), Nick Matthew (british open champion and england number 1), Lee Beechill (world number 10), Ong Beng Hee (world number 12). Created not from Nylon like conventional strings but from ZYEX. A stronger, more resiliant compound. Rackets strung in Powernick should be strung at 2 lbs less than with equivalent nylon strings due to its strength. David Palmer recommends 25-27 lbs.

Construction: Multicore with Wrap

String Rating (Hide Explanation)

Many manufacturers are now quoting values for various characteristics of their strings. These characteristics cannot be taken in isolation as any particular restring should take into account several different factors. The most common characteristics are:

  • Comfort - how comfortable (touch, feel) are the strings to play with?
  • Durability - how long can you expect the string to last before breaking?
  • Spin - is the string designed to help with spin production?
  • Power - how powerful is the string?

Where the manufacturer doesn't quote figures for these characteristics, we have inserted our own, based on our experience and comparing with other similar strings.

Please note that as these ratings are manufacturer based, they may not represent an accurate comparison between brands.

Each set of ratings refers to only one gauge of the particular string as the rating will be different per gauge. This is indicated by the text "(Ratings refer to xx variant)" after the ratings.

Comfort: 10.0
Durablity: 8.0
Spin: 0.0
Power: 0.0

Top Spin Tennis View: We use this string a lot for a number of our performance squash players - give it a go but its durability is not that great as its a thin gauge string.
