Tecnifibre 305 has always been a great string for the player looking for an elastic / soft playing string. Available in both 17 and 18 gauge the 305 offers players a choice in durability / performance. 18 gauge (1.10mm) is the thinner of the two and offers up the best performance. Be aware, players who hit around the edge of the racquet may "shear" off the string leading to premature breakage. From playtesting the new 305 1.10mm has a softer, more elastic feel to it than the older 305 from 2-3 years ago. Which is a definite plus. One weird note - it seems greener than the old version (!) - maybe it has more PU or some other magical ingredient but whatever it is, it is a move up in the performance scale.
