Tests
Our tests on the products' advantages are performed in the lab: The Resistance test checks the string's resistance to breaking. This test is performed in the lab by the Canon Ball machine and lets us ensure that each cord has a long lifespan. The Strength test is performed in our labs by a charpy impact test machine. This test verifies the energy absorbed by the product and its capacity to reproduce this speed on the ball.
Designed to
advanced players who break strings in under 10 hours of play and are looking for power and control.

ADVICE

Storage Tips
avoid extreme temperature changes and any moisture on the string. Do not leave your racket in your car boot: the temperature can rise and fall dramatically!
RESTRICTED USE
Monofilament strings are not suitable for players under 15!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Which tension is best?
Moderate tension (18 kg to 23 kg) offers more comfort, spin and power. The flip side is that you'll have less control and accuracy. High tension (>23 kg) provides greater control and accuracy. It can, however, lead to tendinitis. You will also have less spin and power.
About monofilaments
For monofilament strings, Decathlon recommends a tension of between 19 kg and 22 kg. We strongly recommend against using monofilament strings for children under 15 to avoid injury. These strings are best for players who break strings in under 10 hours of play because they quickly lose their tension (20% loss within 3 hours of play).
About multifilaments
For multifilament strings, Decathlon recommends a maximum tension of 25 kg. These strings are recommended for people who are prone to tendinitis, youngsters, and people who don't break their strings often. Multifilament strings keep their tension very well and stay bouncy longer.

    Top de chez TOP,...

    Top de chez TOP, je jouais avec du RPM BLAST mais n'ayant pas une fréquence de casse importante, je perdais énormément de tension à l'utilisation. Avec le TA 990 en 1.20, j'ai retrouvé de la vitesse de balle et en plus du contrôle, tout en conservant de la résistance.
    Plaisir.
