Discho Iontec Tennis String

Introduced in the United States and Canada earlier this year, Discho Iontec is a co-polyester tennis string that provides a unique mix of control and comfort. Learn more by watching the following video:

Please be on the lookout for another video within the coming weeks where I’ll announce a contest to give away five sets (one set each to five lucky winners) of Discho Iontec.

Thanks for checking in.

    Thanks for the good string review! I just started stringing my own rackets a few months ago with a drop weight machine. I┬┤m really interested in new tennis strings.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Mike T says:

    Really good to hear your comparison on the string’s feel compared to PHT and Alu vs. cheaper plasticky polys. I wonder what they mean by their “ion” technology though.

  3. David Henry says:

    Hey Joni. Congrats on getting the stringing machine and starting to string. Thanks for the kind words about my string review – glad you liked it.


  4. David Henry says:

    Not sure. Reach out to Ray West at Mamba Tennis for more information. He is a really nice guy.

    Take care.


  5. Tom S. says:

    Thanks for the info. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t of heard about these strings. I’m looking forward to trying them out because of the cheap price.

  6. David Henry says:

    Glad I could help introduce you to a new string. Let me know how you like ’em.

    David, reviewing a string is worthy from a stringers perspective. Keep up the great work. Play testing, a whole ‘nother thing altogether. I agree, you can’t possibly play test it and make any objective opinion, tension and frame aside, no way to do it justice.

    Most people who play have no clue about stringing. Most volume stringers, probably don’t play at a higher level in the game. I do both, sort of. Play at a modestly high level, and string a little bit. On two frames only, I understand how SOME strings react, at certain tensions and certain gauges. Even with the 4 strings I deal with, I’m still not totally dialed in on how it works for Babolat versus Prince (flexible frames). I have a sense, but I’m far from really knowing it. I’d have to have the same frames, strung at a ridiculous different tensions, and types of strings, all at the same time, over two hours, to really understand it in full. And even then, temperature too makes a difference.

    Here’s the drill, unless somebody is at least 4.5 level, and strings 100 racquets a month, then they ain’t qualified! I qualify on both counts, and I’m still not qualified.

    Keep up the great work.

  8. David Henry says:

    Chris – Thanks for the kind words of support – much appreciated. I hear ya loud and clear… Most high level players don’t string often. Not all stringers play at a high level. I am somewhat similar to you in that I play at a respectable level and string a great deal. Although I fall a little short of your levels – as I am 4.0 and don’t string 100 sticks a month – just too busy with my family and corporate job to find time for that many sticks a month. ­čÖé

    I’ll keep doin’ what I’m doin’ with regard to Inspired Tennis – as many kind people like you have expressed their appreciation for the information I pass along.

    Take care Man.

    “If you hit a flat ball, poly strings are not for you”


    This guy doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about.

  12. David Henry says:

    Ouch Dude – Harsh words.

    I make mistakes like everyone, and I’ll give you the point that I should have stated “If you hit a flat ball, poly strings are probably not for you.” However… I stick by my belief…

    Co-poly strings are not ideal for flat hitters. Co-poly strings are, without a doubt, best suited for players that have topspin-producing groundstrokes with fast racquet head speed. Players with these types of strokes will get the full benefit of co-poly strings… Incredible spin and action on the ball.

    I’m not saying that flat hitters don’t use co-poly strings. Many do. However, I feel strongly that co-poly strings are not ideal for flat hitters – especially a full bed of co-poly. In fact, I’ve had several flat-hitting clients who insisted upon trying co-poly strings (because of their popularity at all levels of the game – especially on Tour), but they ended up hating the way co-poly played for them. Too stiff and board-like. Anyway…

    You’re certainly entitled to your opinion about co-poly strings and to your opinion about me. I won’t lose any sleep over either of your opinions.

    Take care.
