Tecnifibre has a new string for 2020 called Tecnifibre Dynamix VP. I am not sure if this is a replacement for their DNAMX string, or another option in their product lineup. I think probably the latter. Honestly, DNAMX was a lousy product name — easy to spell wrong and unclear how to pronounce — and I’m glad they probably ditched it.
The Dynamix comes in three widths: 1.15, 1.20, and 1.25 millimeter.
Dynamix VP 1.15mm
The thinnest of the bunch is the Tecnifibre Dynamix 1.15.
Dynamix VP 1.20mm
This 1.20mm option will probably be the most commonly used.
Dynamix VP 1.25mm
For those that like it thick.
I just strung two of my carboflex x125. One with the 305 1.10mm (which is my go to string) and one with the Dynamix VP 1.15mm.
Same machine, same settings.
The VP appears to be at least as elastic as the 305 even though its a bit thicker.
Biggest difference is the surface feel.
The 305 is smooth and the surface feels more robust. In comparison the VP feels more “sticky”. It has a certain waxy feel to it and the main string “sing” when you pull through the crosses. Furthermore the surface seems to be more fragile or more as a coating since I already can see spots where it frays (but no damage at all).
Also at the knots the VP looks more multi-layered whereas the 305 is “one” string.
(But not as Ashaway where you see a distinct core and mantle).
I expect that the VP will fray much faster than the 305 so the durability is smaller.
Therefore I thick they made it in 1.15mm and not in 1.10mm.
I will try them both next week in the court and keep you updated.
Feels aside, the black string looks killer in the x-speed.
I don’t see much online about this string. Any thoughts on its performance and durability?
Any comparison to 305?
