ALPHA - FLEXEL
Construction: Features microfibers in the core which are encased in dense larger set of outer fibers. An additional spiraling wrap is added for durability and control. Finally the string is coated with a pearlized abrasion-resistant resin. Flexel offers great value in a micro-multifilament tennis string.
Advantage: Advanced micro-multifilament that provides the player gut-like feel but the extended playability of nylon, and the pearlized coating enhance the durability. This string provides a good compromise between power and control. Alpha Flexel is an excellent, choice for tennis players who suffer from elbow or shoulder tenderness. A nice choice for a strong player who wants better control then they get with a synthetic gut.
Gauges: 16g (1.33mm)
Colors: White or Blue
Why we carry this string: Because it is one of the absolute best values currently available in performance tennis strings.

A great string at this price. Highly recommendable. Played on clay court and artificial lawn. Recommendable for both surfaces. From:Frank
I have played the string on clay as well as indoor courts and was impressed by the playing characteristics. The price/performance is great. Spin potential is normal, while the string provides very good feedback. However you should string it a bit tighter because it loses its tension quickly. Overall more than satisfying. From:Mike
