Ashaway Powernick 18 Squash String

Our Description

Ashaway Powernick 18 is a thin, powerful, textured multifilament squash string. Like most Ashaway squash stings, it is exceptionally durable. In this case, it is an exceptionally durable for an 18 gauge string.

Like most 18 gauge strings, we tend to recommend Powernick to players who typically benefit from the additional power provided by a thinner gauge string, which is younger juniors, ladies and older men.

1 review for Ashaway PowerNick 18 Squash String

  1. Kiefer Waite (verified owner)

    Powernick is somewhat of an enigma as it is a very stiff string, but I found it to be not all that durable. Ashaway calls it a “monofilament” string, which is basically a thicker filament core of string with other smaller filaments of string wrapped around it. The result is a stiff string, similar to a poly tennis string, but with a textured surface, which kind of defeats the purpose of a poly string. The 18 gauge string feels better that other Ashaway 17 gauge strings, but for a stiff string, I found it to be not all that durable. Overall, there are definitely better strings out there from Ashaway. To be clear, this is a review of the 18 gauge Powernick, not the 19 gauge powernick.
