Now that Winter has released its cold grip on most of the country, it’s time to start thinking about the long tennis season that lies ahead. In light of this realization we have some good news and some bad news.
First, the bad news. If you didn’t get a chance to play a lot this winter, your timing will likely be a little off. With that in mind, I want you to go grab your racquet.
Go ahead, I can wait.
Now that you have your racquet in hand, I want you to look at your stringbed. If you don’t see any strings, keep reading for the string deals below. But let’s say you do see strings, and let’s further speculate that they are the same strings that were in your racquet at the end of last tennis season. If that’s the case, allow me to be frank. Those strings are old and have likely lost too much tension. With tension loss comes changes in feel, power, friction properties, and trajectory (i.e., bad news). Couple that with the winter rust plaguing your mechanics and your timing problems just got worse. In other words, it’s time to restring.
And now for the good news. Tennis Warehouse has some awesome string deals to help you jump into tennis season.
Let’s take a look at 3 of our favorite co-polys.
It starts with Volkl Cyclone, a spin friendly string boasting surgical precision and great feel for a firm monofilament. This one is a staff favorite if ever there was one. It typically sells for $7.99 a set, but we have it on sale for $4.99! The discount is based on the fact that it comes in a clear plastic bag rather than the official packaging. Make no mistake though, this is Cyclone and it offers a degree of playability that ranks up there with the most expensive co-polys on the market. Click me to get some Volkl Cyclone!
Another deal that no self-respecting poly player should pass on is Kirschbaum Black Shark, a firm monofilament that currently owns the highest spin score from our TW String Lab. With its sharp teeth and slippery coating, this one grabs the ball and snaps it out of the stringbed with incredible force. You can get it at half price if you buy the 4-pack.
Finally, for those of you who want total control and massive spin without taxing your tendons, we have Gosen Sidewinder, one of the most comfortable co-polys on the market (and it’s under $10 a set if you buy 3 or more). This one comes twisted with some grippy ridges for ripping into the felt.
