Snake-Bite Smooth Sets (40ft/12.2m)

  • By: Alexander Shen
    As a 3.5-4.0 tennis player playing for Tennis on Campus, I believe these are the best budget strings you can buy. There are a lot of alternatives such as pros pros and other cheaper strings on tennis warehouse, but none compare when it comes to quality like golden set. I always loved the original snake bites, but I do not like the feel of textured polys. Luckily, they released these beauties and I have not used anything else ever since. These will most likely be my choice of string for my whole tennis career. If you have arm problems, I would suggest hybriding it or trying their power cord instead.

    As a professional stringer for many years, majority of my supplies, including strings, grips and overgrips, are from Golden Set. Quality of their products and prices attached to them are absolutely exceptional. I was able to replace very expensive Luxilon, Black Code, RPM Blast and few other polys with Hex Poly, Power Cord and Snake Bite smooth. I do a lot of hybrids and one of my favorite is Hex Poly in mains with Snake Bite Smooth in crosses… superb feel, spin, power, comfort and yet arm friendly. I would also like to thank Golden Set for incredible customer service and very prompt order delivery.

    Pleasantly surprised. Snake-Bite Smooth has similar spin as the hex. It feels more comfortable, too. As expected, the same great quality and durability. Big plus is easier stringing - easy to handle and less tough on my hand, skin & nails. I am very happy and satisfied to have included a reel of this new string in my purchase.
    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,

    Snake bite smooth is a durable spin friendly poly. Bang for the buck along with golden set service is unbeatable. Was using snake bite in mains with power cord in crosses now full bed of smooth

    Great durability as expected, with exceptional spin and power. Been using it this year to string peoples racquets that want a reliable poly string. Everyone loves it, no complaints.

    The new round snakebite smooth appears to have the same feel as the hex one. I’m sure the smooth will last much longer, I had trouble with the old one chewing through other strings in a hybrid setup.

    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 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.

    We compared this string with Babolat RPM blast. There are lots of similarities between them. It helps for top spin and its durability is similar to regular poly strings. But, my son (a top 30 national USTA player) still prefers power cord 17.

    I have used this product twice for customers to trial. The first time I used it as a main with 16g syn-gut on the crosses. The player commented that it generated a softer feel with the same spin as when I used snake bites in the mains. My second customer uses a full bed of another brands black spin string--I put snake bite smooth in the crosses of one of his three racquets and marked it. After playing with all three I asked if he could tell which racquet I strung differently and he commented that the spin was the same but that one of his racquets felt spongier than what he normally uses. He picked out the one with smooth. I am not surprised because of the swing speed this player uses and the stiffness of his normal string. I will use this product again, especially for customers wanting better durability with touch.

    I have tried the demo you sent me and I'm very please with the feeling of this string , very good tension maintaining and good spin potential
    Have to lower tension a bit cause it's a stiffer string but when adjust the tension this is a very good string.
    Snake - bite smooth is my new string of choose
