New LXN Smart tennis string changes characteristics in real-time
"A string that does the thinking for you!"
"Tennis' first smart string!"
LXN Smart is able to identify a players swing speed then adapt to provide more flex on touch shots and more stiffness on power shots. The string plays like a polyester, yet with the comfort of a multifilament.
It’s available in sets and reels of 1.25mm and 1.30mm for USD $19.95 / USD $289.95 at www.luxilon.com and at tennis retailers worldwide.
LXN Smart quickly identifies a player’s swing speed and then adapts to provide more flex on touch shots and more stiffness on power shots. The secret to this intuitive string lies in three fibers within its polymer material, which stiffen with high swing speeds for more control and soften with slower swing speeds for more touch and feel. This string plays like a polyester, yet with the comfort of a multifilament.
Luxilon developed its new LXN Smart string in response to the rising trend of players stringing their rackets more loosely.
