Babolat ™ Addiction Tennis String Set – 16 Gauge
Babolat Addiction is an excellent multifilament string for most recreational tennis players. Not suitable for frequent string breakers. This string has an anti-abrasion coating which prolongs life and reduces wear breaks. However, like all multifilament strings, Addiction is soft and is susceptible to sheer breaks. Therefore we don’t recommend it to hard hitting men or to player who pound flat serves.
Babolat Addiction is a relatively stiff, durable, non-poly tennis string with some of the characteristics of multifilament and some characteristics of synthetic gut. It is more durable than Babolat Synthetic gut and more durable than soft multifilament strings like Babolat Xcel.
The ideal compromise. Multifilament string combining comfort, power and durability. Exclusive to Babolat incorporation of PTFE fibers. The very low coefficient of friction of this material reduces abrasion between the main strings and the cross strings, prolonging the life of the string.
