Advances in materials, equipment, conditioning and training have increased the pace of today’s game. Players look for any edge over their opponents: every gram counts. Bringing lightness to tennis footwear presents a unique challenge. Players not only need speed, but just as importantly, they also need support.
Installing Black Code 4S was actually a lot less trouble than expected. Typically geometric or textured polys can be a bear for the fingers, but 4S wasn't terribly onerous even though the edges were definitely noticeable. Coil memory seemed typical for a polyester but, with a little care, tangles and kinks were easily avoided. As with most geometric or textured polys, installing crosses comes with some risk of damage due to the sharp edges. I didn't have any issues, but I'd still encourage other stringers to take their time installing crosses—especially if they're blending Black Code 4S with another, softer string.
