Do you use round cores or hex cores?
Both! A lot of companies show a clear bias to one type of core or the other, we use each core type in the situation that we think it works best.
Everyone has an opinion on the round core vs. hex core debate—and everyone you ask will tell you different reasons for why they like either one. To us, hex cores hold tune better, break less often, and have a clearer, more natural top end. That’s why we use hex cores for our Signatures, Naturals, & Brights lines.
Where we do like round cores is on our pure nickel Broadways. Round core strings have a smoother, deeper bottom end and seem to resonate very well with the combination of pure nickel wrap alloy.
As we develop new string lines, core geometry is always a key piece of the recipe we put together for a line, and we will certainly have more round core offerings down the line as they make sense.
