ASHAWAY ’ S NEW STRINGS

NEW POLYURETHANE RESIN TECHNOLOGY ADDS TOUGHNESS , DURABILITY AND GRIP

Ashaway has introduced another technical innovation to its line of squash strings : a polyurethane ( PU ) based , multifilament nylon string designed to add toughness and durability for players who like to really cut and spin the ball . Ashaway ’ s first string using this technology , new MultiNick ® 18 , combines a high tenacity multifilament nylon sheath with a specially formulated polyurethane resin that bonds the string into a single matrix and adds durability while providing superior feel and ball control . The smooth PU surface of MultiNick 18 enhances grip , while the 18-gauge construction maximizes ability to cut and spin the ball .
“ Polyurethane resin technology has been used in squash strings for some time now , but is new for Ashaway ” said Ashaway ’ s Steve Crandall . “ It can be formulated to offer many different properties , and when combined with other materials , like high tenacity nylon multifilament fibers , can provide strings with exceptional playing characteristics . MultiNick 18 is our first offering using this innovative material technology , and we are excited to be able to compete in this market segment .”
The key difference with Ashaway ’ s polyurethane technology , Crandall explained , is the matrix design . With other multifilament nylon strings , like Ashaway ’ s popular SuperNick ® XL line , the core and outer wear layer elements remain separate , and retain some ability to move relative to one another . The PU resin in the new MultiNick string binds the multifilament sheath and surface into a single unitized matrix . The natural adhesive properties of the polyurethane surface add grip , while the string retains its soft feel , comfortable playability and ability to control the ball .
Ashaway ’ s MultiNick 18 strings are designed for both professional and amateur players who seek feel , durability and toughness at all levels of play . Black in color and 1.15 mm thick , MultiNick 18 strings come in 30 ft . individual packages or 360 ft . reels . Recommended string tension is up to 35 lbs .
