The Tecnifibre 305+ strings are meant to be a balanced blend of power and control. Tecnifibre supposedly took the power of their 305 strings and merged it with the control of their X-One Biphase, creating one superstring, a creature of power and grace, like the mighty Pegasus.

But instead, the terrifying reality is more complicated. One reader said the 305+ 1.1 string “felt tight and hard” (that’s what she said), and another said “it was too stiff for my liking” (that’s what she said). On the plus side, this string is played by current world #3 Mohamed El Shorbagy and former world #1 Thierry Lincou.
Tecnifibre 305+ 1.1mm / 18 Gauge
The thinnest version of this string is the Tecnifibre 305+ 1.1 (18 gauge). There are a couple different packing styles for this, but I think they’re the same product.
Tecnifibre 305+ 1.2mm / 17 Gauge
There’s also a Tecnifibre 305+ in 1.2mm size (17 gauge). Here are two different package styles I’ve seen, but they’re both the same product:
