Ashaway Badminton String 2016-11-09T09:48:07+00:00

Ashaway Badminton StringAshaway is a USA-based company who are one of the oldest string manufacturers in the world. Founded in 1824 Ashaway became known for manufacturing high quality fishing line. They began making racket strings in 1949 and were the first to introduce Kevlar strings to the tennis market.

Ashaway USA now manufactures a wide range of products from racket strings to lines used in heart surgery. Such exacting standards are a norm from this company which is why they are regarded as one of the best racket string manufacturers in the world.

I have used Ashaway string since the mid 1980’s. Back then, their badminton strings were regarded as the number one string in the UK with most of the Team GB players using Rally 21, a string which is still very popular today. They are still held in the highest regard by players, coaches and stringers.

The introduction of the Zymax range, and most recently the superb Beta Polymer Zymax Fire has seen a surge in popularity for Ashaway badminton strings. Players across the world are switching to these strings which offer exceptional feel, outstanding response with increased tension stability.

All of the Ashaway Zymax Fire badminton strings are multi-filament strings. Multi-filament strings consist of many individual strings wound together to create a strong core, with an outer core that comprises intricate weaves to provide bite or grip on the shuttle. This means they are great for absorbing shock and also offer great touch, control and power.

I was honoured to be asked to beta- test the new range of Zymax Fire strings and provide feedback long before the initial launch of the string. They have become my string of choice and I therefore stock the full range of Zymax Fire performance badminton strings, listed below:
