Ashaway Supernick XL Micro

Ashaway Squash Strings

Ashaway has improved its SuperNick XL Micro Squash string to provide increased durability, improved shot making, and stronger brand recognition. The original SuperNick XL Micro was a white, 18 gauge string, well regarded among top amateur players for its resiliency and ball control. In the new SuperNick XL Micro, Ashaway has modified the string's unique construction of nylon multifilament core and double-braided multifilament jacket. The increased linear density of the finished string results in superior durability for an 18 gauge string, while still providing gut-like performance and excellent playability at lower tensions.

Also new to SuperNick XL Micro is a textured surface like the other standard 17 gauge SuperNick XL products. This textured surface allows for optimum shotmaking and excellent ball control. In addition, the new SuperNick XL Micro has a unique and very distinctive bright yellow color with the trademark red and blue SuperNick XL crossing pattern embedded in the string to make it easily recognizable as a member of the SNXL family of squash strings.

SuperNick XL Micro squash string is recommended for all styles and levels of play, and for players looking for improved feel and control of the ball. Recommended stringing tension is up to 35 lbs

Construction: Multifilament

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
