Features and Benefits – Solinco Tour Bite string


Tennis strings have different thickness and the thickness is known as the gauge. Typically, tennis string gauge ranges from 15, which is the thickest, to 19, which is the thinnest.

Co-polyester Monofilament Construction

The Solinco Tour Bite String comes an innovative and high-powered co-polyester monofilament fibre. This string is produced through a procedure which involves three separate heating and cooling stages. Each stage is carefully carried out at specific temperatures and durations with the use of specialized extrusion techniques.

These co-polyester materials also make the string very stiff and durable. Thus, it is an ideal choice for players who tend to break strings.

This material is shaped and designed to create optimum power and at the same time amplify the biting intensity and spin of the ball.

Also, the materials of this string allow for an increase in elasticity without leading to the reduction of the control of the string.
