    The snake bite is an incredible and durable string at a great price. I have been using it for about a year now. I could never hit with topspin until I started using this great string. I would highly recommend this string.

    I have been ordering strings and accessories from GoldenSet for quite some time. I always have been impressed by 1: their prices, 2. the quality of their products and 3. their great customer service. I play quite often 2-3 times per week but I also travel a lot with my racquets and play whenever and wherever I go to. This requires me bringing racquets with me in airplanes and to places with different altitudes, temperatures and conditions. That’s why I keep coming back because I have to change my strings and grips, etc. quite often. Great bang for the buck. Recently, I tried out Snakebite smooth. Impressed with its control and spin. So far so good. Seems even more durable than the hex. Will order again. Thank you,

    As much as I wanted to like it, it was too jarring for me (from the stiffness of the string). It played very nicely for the first two hours or so; however, I didn't enjoy it past 3 hour mark. Also, I developed tennis elbow at the same time. Personally much prefer the power cord over this, as it is much softer and arm friendly.

    I am really happy with the Golden Set strings and also my over 1300 players in a year. Lots of my players using the great combination of Snake Bite, Power Cord or Hex-Poly on the main and Synthetic Gut Multifilament on cross. Your string give to them amazing performance. Between you and I, some players on 5.0 NRTP stop using Luxilon and RPM Blast and switch to Snake Bite. On of my machines is an Gamma 9900 ELS and doing a perfect work with the Golden Set strings. I very high recommend using the Golden Set materials, extremely high performance on the court My name is Oscar, from DEUCE4040, with 25 years experience. Thank you, Oscar

    Thanks for the opportunity to review the products I've purchased from Golden Set. Most recently I needed to replenish my stock of synthetic gut. There was no hesitation to come back to Golden Set for the mono-filament Classic 16g, and Synthetic Gut 17g. Both of these have become a staple in my string inventory due to the durability and play-ability my customers experience using them. I have customers who like their entire racquet strung with these strings and those who like using them as crosses in a hybrid set-up. These strings cover the spectrum of my needs as a stringer, providing quality strings and competitive prices. Thanks Golden Set!

    I ordered 2 black Synthetic Gut Reels from Golden Set a few months ago. My 3 rackets are being strung every month with them. I would like to say that the Golden Set strings give me unprecedented power, control and touch. The price was better than the ones found in several online tennis merchants for similar strings. My tennis game has improved and my tennis elbow never came back. The online service from Golden Set was top notch and the fast delivery was better than expectations. I would highly recommend Golden Set Tennis for your tennis accessories. Thank you, Jean-Paul Pham Ottawa, ON

    I really enjoyed playing with these Multifilimants. I am a competitive ITF player and have been struggling with arm pain for a while. I recently switched to Multifilimant strings but soon saw myself breaking the bank. I was fortunate enough to come across these strings. They play just like the NXT yet cost the fraction of the cost. 5 stars

    I have had the pleasure to swing with the 19 Kevlar for well over a year now. I play a a lot of high school tennis and I found this string's attributes to be very fitting for my game. Being known for duration, the Kevlar does in fact last long, but the 19 thickness makes it less rough on the arm. Moreover the feel is exceptional. I have used this string for crosses on a poly hybrid, mains on a home made problend, and even tried it as a one piece and never have I had a complaint. I find the fray these strings make to be amazing. No matter how frayed it is, it manages to survive. The poly hybrid even got me a state championship for my team and runner up in the state for doubles. You cant go wrong with the 19 KEV!

    I can't say enough good things about the Hex string . . . lasts long, bites the ball great, doesn't move around in the racquet, and gives me lots of control. I've started stringing my racquets at 39 lbs. and even at that low tension this string stays in place. I use Hex for the mains and Snake-bite for the crosses at 2 lbs. more. Love the response that I get from it! Everyone I've strung racquets for request this combo of Hex and Snake-bite. Just the best string that I've ever used. Thanks!!!

    My 13 year old son and I have also tried the classic which I bought as a package with snakebite. It has a nice feel but is short lived for anyone playing with some power. I have also used it in a hybrid setup with snakebite. It was good for the first few hours but the hard poly tears through it pretty quick. I consider it a decent string given the price for the beginners to intermediates. Customer service at Golden set has always been excellent. Fast shipping and easy to deal with.

    I'm generally happy with the Satin string I ordered. The feel is good. It is arm friendly and gives good control and power. The only drawback is its durability. I play about three times a week and this string only lasts about two weeks. I'm planning to get a cheap string machine to save money on restringing costs for this string. Jason

    I have been playing tennis for more than 55 years and have been stringing racquets for over 50 years. I have used every string imaginable including natural gut, synthetic gut, multifilament, monofilament and polyester as well as other combinations over the years. The Golden Set string is as good or better than any string I have ever used. I prefer the Velvet and Maximal for myself, but I also string for several other people using Golden Set Synthetic Gut, Snake Bite, and Power Cord. My customers are extremely satisfied with these strings. Sincerely, J. Lucas

    I ordered a large quantity of Golden Set string. My players and I love the feel of the snake bite because its durable and still has that bite to create the needed spin on the ball. Also the Power Cord has a soft feel to it and not to hard on an arm. This is extremely effective for my players who play 19 matches in two weeks and this string also has a long lasting durability.

    Snake Bite is a good string for the money. I tried as a full poly and as a hybrid w/ classic and have decided to stay with the hybrid setup. I like the softness of the snake/ classic and still have adequate spin but with added power. I will be purchasing more strings after I'm all out. Thanks Golden Set and keep up the great work!

    So for the last seven years I have been using Golden Set products. I have my own stringing machine which I originally bought just so I could tie my own tennis strings but has turned into doing work for others as well. It’s been nice to be able to order a selection of strings as well as grips and over grips for a great price and they work equal to the “big name” brands. I have found both the Secure Grip and the Elan Grip to work well. Over grips have been a great addition for me as they work great and I use them as a small bonus I send with the rackets for some of my consistent customers. For many years I used the Maximal 17 and loved the feel that the string gave me. But being a heavy topspin baseline player was looking for a little more from my string and had tried several different setups when I finally got around to trying there Power Cord 17(full bed). This is a great string, pockets the ball well, easy on the arm and a little extra spin on the ball is always good. Durability is better then some of the other strings I have used. I also like that Golden Set has a Canadian outlet. Orders are accurate and shipping is prompt. Thank you and I look forward to continue doing business with you. Jason

    I am a primarily baseline player with moderate swing speed and moderate spin. I have this strung at 52/57 in my aerogel 300. It is by far the best kevlar string I have used. It has greatly improved my game, great spin on forehands and on serves. It has great feel and has lasted about 20 hours so far, still in no danger of breaking. If you like the way kevlar feels, this is definitely worth trying out, you won't be disappointed.

    Just got my sample set this week, tried the snake-bite for a couple hours at 58 lbs on my babolat purestorm carbon xtreme. I was used to luxilon's adrenaline and honestly couldn't tell a difference between the two. My wallet certainly did. And the stringer guy looked upset while stringing my racquet, I didn't know different brands of strings could be easier or more difficult to string.

    I have first used the Power Cord in yellow and I first loved them, then used the Snake Bite in black and I love GoldenSet even more. The Power Cord are a very soft string so I do not get pain in my elbow anymore, the Snake Bite are a little bit harder on my elbow, and the bite you get from the Snake Bite is really amazing, it is like the ball stays in your racquet at contact point for 3 or 4 seconds lol, you have time to aim and shoot back. Right now I went back to the Power Cord because they are more gentle on my elbow and so far I am happy this way. Highly recommended and cheaper than all other brands, I have tried a multitude of big brands for the past 2 to 3 years, non stop changing strings to see what will fit my game best, and the best one out there is the Luxilon Alu Power 125, but really expensive and do not last longer than 1 month on my racquet playing 3 to 4 times a week, I am a 4.5 player and I play really hard. The Power Cord do not have as much spin as the Snake Bite but it is actually really good for a smooth poly string. I string them at home and can restring not too often, Power Cord stays a long time, 2 months, in my Yonex Ezone 98 at 48lbs. I love it. Buy it, any of them... Olivier.

    I'm a high 4.5 to low 5.0 player and I've been using this string (Hex-Poly) for the last 3 years! I break strings fairly frequently and used to use Luxilon 4G, but it was way too expensive to pay >$250 a reel. I was using the 16 gauge Hex-Poly for a while and it lasted about 2x longer than the 4G, while providing really good power and spin. The string would start to lose a tension after about 4-5 weeks of playing, but it played and felt really well right before breaking; it'd just become harder to control. I've switched to the 17 gauge version and it lasts about 2-3 weeks of heavy playing. I like the thinner version a lot because it's still very durable, and I get even more power and control with the 17 gauge.

I am 87 and live in Longboat Key, Florida where I play tennis at least 5 and usually six days a week.I still play singles when I can find someone who will. My USTA 3.5 team on which I played number 2 position won the Florida State championship in year 2000 and went to Palm Springs where we finished seventh nationally. I have tried different Golden Set strings but finally tried an experiment which has worked very well for me and also for my wife who was a highly ranked player in the womens 35s in the 1970s. We both have used the same racquet for 12 years, a Wilson NCode, N1 Force which is an oversized 125. I have syngut 17g , black in the mains which could also be syngut 17g natural and velvet 17g natural color in the crosses, both strung at 62 pounds. It may sound weird but it works for me and my wife and that is all that count I also find the overgrips to be excellent Bill Allen

    I was excited to receive a set of the latest multi filament offering from Golden set called Satin. I had been looking for and trying lots of different hybrid multi/poly set ups that combine control, power and comfort. Satin did not disappoint. I was very impressed with how it felt with some stiffer polys that I enjoy playing with but due to elbow issues I had to cut back on full poly setups. So glad they sent me a sample to try. I put Satin on the mains and Snake Bite 17g on the crosses and it felt pretty good. But the ideal setup for me was Satin 16g on the mains and Hex Poly 18g on the cross at 52lbs. This played and felt amazing. Control, power and most important to me was comfort. It had a nice amount of pop surprisingly, ample spin and I felt I could put the ball anywhere I wanted. Only downside was durability. That setup didn’t last long but who cares when their price point is so low. Another solid product from Golden Set! Georgy K

    I ordered a sample pack to get an idea for the type of string that best suits my style of play. I have my own stringing machine, and over the course of the summer I determined that the Maximal/Hex Poly was the best hybrid set up for me. I look forward to saving tons of money on strings and having my racquet set up just the way I like for the upcoming summer season. Thanks to Golden Set I can afford the luxury of a racquet tuned like a pro's at prices more suited to my hacker tennis game.

    Snake Bite Smooth is perfect for big hitters who don't want to worry about overhitting when they're attacking the ball. In other words, I found this poly to be quite low powered and very well suited to the aggressive stroke speeds needed for heavy spin. Durability turned out to be absolutely top notch. With slightly lower tension, this string is very arm friendly, that’s why few high ranked juniors I string racquets for simply love it. I would compare this string to Wilson Ripspin or Prince Tour XC and/or few others. In past few months I used almost four reels of Snake Bite Smooth and I’ll order again.

    I've been using GS strings for a few years now... Started with Snakebite a few times & liked the bit it had... But once I tried Power Cord 16, I was hooked.. I have settled on 50 - 52 lbs tension range in full bed... Being a soft Poly it is a lot of fun to play with while being easy on the arm & providing excellent durability. I've strung this for a few friends who also love it. I've been using the 16 gauge for a couple of years now & have been very very happy! Next up Power Cord 17 gauge & I am certain it is only going to be better :-) Lastly, it would be great if GS can sell 1/2 reels of Power Cord strings 17 & 16 gauge.

    Here is a review for the Hex Poly. Hope you can use it. I think you have a neat little business using the net and you should be proud of yourselves. I have been using the Hex Poly strings for years now. I hit a lot of tennis balls and the strings last a long time since I only change them when they have become noticeably notched. I am a senior and find that these strings are gentle to my arm and hand and they give me no discomfort at all. I tried out the Snake-Bite when it came out and, in contrast to the Hex Poly, the Snake-Bite was too much for my arm and was quickly cut out. So I am quite happy with the Hex Poly and expect to use it for the indefinite future.

    I’m a 4.0 male, playing 2-3 times a week mostly doubles. I put the Satin 16 on my Prince O3 Spectrum, in place of the Velvet 16 that I usually use (because it’s the softest string I found, easy on my arm and allows me to hit with enough power but also have a very nice touch game). The Satin 16 has a similar soft feel, but at the same time feeling heavier, more robust somehow. There does appear to be more power, and I have to put more effort into generating spin, on ground strokes as well as serves, but that was just an adjustment, I think I’m back to the same level of spin now after 2-3 weeks. My touch game was also an adjustment – I love little drop shots – but I think I’ve got those back as well. So, I’m still deciding whether or not to switch over to the Satin from the Velvet. I need to do a little back and forth comparison playing (I have two of the same racquet, one with each string) before making the decision, so far I’ve only been using the Satin. The jury is still out, but I definitely like the Satin quite a lot.

    I've been 100% pleased with my recent order and all orders in the past. My latest purchase has been a reel of velvet(17G) and several packs of snakebite(17G). With snakebite(53lbs) on the mains and velvet(57lbs) on the crosses, the playability still gives me a lot of bite and now with added comfort. From a 1-10 rating, 10 being best: Playability: 9 Durability: 8 (8 hours of total match play, velvet started to fray quite a bit) Control: 9 Tension maintenance: 8 I play with a Yonex Vcore Duel G97, rated 4.5, and diving into open division tournaments. Thanks, Andy

    I've been using Snakebite 17 with Maximal 16 for a year now, for me and my team. The durability is exceptional and access to spin is greater than my prior 'name brand' stuff. (plus, the price is unbeatable)

    5 Stars... same review for snake bite, hex poly, classic, and syn gut i have experimented with hybriding different combinations of the poly and nylon solid core in my rackets and the quality of your products is at the very least equal to the top tier manufacturers today. Quality control of string lengths and gauges was very good. The performance of all synthetic guts was exceptional, equal or superior to anything on the market. Snake bite and Hex Poly are fantastic strings. Both very forgiving polys with great performance after breaking in. Even if the strings were not so well priced, they would still be on my list of strings you must try. With the competitive price point and quality, Golden Set strings provide the best of both worlds for todays tennis player. Robert Thornton former NCAA Div 2 player and team captain

    Hi! I really do appreciate your strings that I have bought, already twice! They are fun to play with, and they don't break too fast compared to a bunch of other companies' strings I have tried before. All the best! Steph

    I like the feeling of this string. It is stiff initially. However, after I use different tension of vertical and horizontal stringing, it feels much better. I improved stability and spin of my ground strokes using this string. I will buy this string again.

    My review is for the Golden Set Power Cord 17 Black. This string is very playable for a poly, it is soft on the arm and gives a very nice pop when hitting. The string also produces a good amount of spin even though its not a textured string. You will not be dissapointed, you will like this poly string if you want a feel thats in the middle of soft and firm. Thanks David

    The best. All my friends now use it. They love the durability and the racquet never lose tension until it broke. At first some of my friends restring too tense, you need to drop about 5pl from the regular string.

    I'm just a home stringer and I ordered the white colored 16 awhile back. I put it on my PS 85 at around 56 and its quite comfy. It does start moving a bit after rounds of pounding but I figure that putting poly on mains will solve that problem. Very good price for very good value. Buy this, the price is same as two or three name brand sets. But this is better, and you get 16 sets.
