HEAD Lynx Tour String Review

head lynx tour 1 30

HEAD recently released a new polyester string that has been in the works for a long time. Here is my HEAD Lynx Tour string review.

The new champagne-colored string HEAD Lynx Tour was previously called HEAD Experimental Tour. It is supposed to fill in the gap between the softer HEAD Lynx string and the stiffer HEAD Hawk. It comes in two gauges, 1.25 and 1.30. I would say the playability and tension maintenance is quite similar to Solinco Hyper-G and HEAD’s Dennis Fabian even alludes to that string being an inspiration for HEAD in his interview below.

HEAD Lynx Tour String Characteristics

head lynx tour 1 30

But if you have arm issues, I think the best advice is to stay away from polyester strings until you’re feeling better.

The string got some extra publicity when Dominic Thiem used it in a hybrid with HEAD Hawk when he won Indian Wells in 2019, but he has since switched to Babolat RPM Power . Perhaps out of brand loyalty or just that he enjoys that string more.

The string is currently used by top junior Jonas Forejtek and is also being tested by many other pro players. We will see who ends up committing to this string on a full-time basis when pro tennis resumes.

HEAD Lynx Tour String Review and Interview

I interview one of the guys behind the string, HEAD’s Dennis Fabian, in the podcast below. Dennis talks about the work with the string and other things he is responsible for, like HEAD’s 3-in-1 machine and the stringing machine. Dennis has a lot of experience in the industry and as a stringer and the interview is well worth a listen (I am perhaps biased, but anyway).

Below you can also find my video review of the HEAD Lynx Tour string. After testing it for months, it has become one of my go-to strings. I really enjoy its playability and feel and it also looks great in many different racquets.

Have you tried HEAD Lynx Tour? What do you think about it?

Jonas has been known as "tennis nerd" mainly for his obsessing about racquets and gear. Plays this beautiful sport almost every day.

Very much looking forward to trying this string. I was wondering how you’d compre it to the Hyper-G, as I know that it’s the competitor Head had in mind when they developed this! Which one do you prefer in the end?

Also, very solid hitting with that Mantis in the end…

I was fortunate enough to get a couple of sets from a HEAD rep (thank you!). The string is “soft” and it feels good/decent. It didn’t last as long as I’d like from a set of strings, but the way I play nothing really lasts long besides my usual strings. I won’t be switching to it, but I’ll give it a “good grade”.

I play with a lot of topspin off of both wings and have been playing with GOSEN POLYLON for the past 10 years.(love the durability of these gosen strings)

Thanks for all your reviews TennisNerd :-)

Thanks for commenting, Leonardo.

It plays very similar to Hyper-G. I think the Lynx Tour might be a bit less spin-friendly, but more comfortable. But the differences are slight!

How many hours have you been getting out of them?

How does the shaped Lynx Tour affect durability or snapback for a gut hybrid?

It can saw into the gut a bit, so I would say it does affect it. I would go for a round poly with gut.

Would you say 1.25 or 1.30 is better? What’s the playing difference?

I like thinner gauges generally, otherwise, it tends to get too stiff.

You can compare whit the Ice Code? Thanks.

Ice Code is a bit softer and less spin-friendly.

Hi. I know it s a round vs a shape poly but how would you compare this head lynx tour to poly tour strike ? (Confort, tension maintenance… Spin i Guess the head wins grands down) Thanks you

Yeah, I prefer the HEAD string here, comfort similar, tension maintenance and spin is a win for Lynx Tour.

Ok. On my Ezone 100, I play with Yonex PTP which has a good confort but was looking for some extra spin. Unfortunately, the strike even with its good control, doesn’t pocket as well as the dwell time is really short. So Maybe I have to try this head lynx tour or revolve spin to have find again a good pocketing/dwell time and more control/spin and still have some confort as the PTP… (Maybe Cyclone could be cool too, in blak version to tame the power). What would you say at first reading ? Thank you. B.

I’ve hit Lynx Tour in the Blade v8 16×19 at 44 lbs for the past week. I really like it quite a bit — but want just a little more softness without going all Mannarino out here. While it is comfy, I have a wrist injury that I’m trying to avoid tempting to come back (no issues so far, though). Would you recommend hybriding with Element, or is there a full-bed candidate that has similar characteristics? Thanks Jonas!

What do you think about hybrid with lynx tour and luxilon 4g? Luxilon in the main or crosses?

Sounds stiff! I’d put Lynx tour in the crosses

After years of playing with polys this string (at 52lb) is giving me shoulder problems.

Maybe time for a hybrid?

Yeah, or a softer poly or lower tension. Lynx Tour is great but rather firm.

How much is the recommended tension?

I would go a few lbs lower than your regular tension

HEAD updates their polyester offerings with the new Lynx Tour Tennis String . While the other strings in the Lynx family play a little bit more muted and powerful for a polyester, Lynx Tour is more about spin and control. The string has a subtle, six-sided profile to help players create more spin, and HEAD created a new co-polymer mixture to up the comfort factor. String Lynx Tour in the mains and crosses to up control and spin potential. The string also works well in a hybrid with a softer multifilament like HEAD Velocity or Reflex. Our playtesters noted that Lynx Tour had excellent control, even when strung at a lower tension..

Head Lynx Tour Review

A co-polyester monofilament from head designed for hard hitting players. will it help you produce champagne tennis.

Jonathan

Lynx Tour is part of HEAD’s family of co-polyester strings sitting alongside the standard Lynx and the other offshoot variants: Lynx Edge and Lynx Touch.,

Lynx Tour is marketed as the stiffest of the three and was pre-launched as “Experimental Tour” a couple of years ago with several pros including Andrey Rublev testing it out before it officially made it onto the shelves. 

Its biggest claim to fame however, is that Dominic Thiem used it in a hybrid configuration when he beat Federer in the 2019 Indian Wells final.

Head Lynx Tour is available in three colours (orange, grey and champagne) and two gauges, 1.25mm and 1.30mm. A 1.20mm is also rumoured to be available soon.

Like all polys bearing the moniker “Tour”, it is said to offer great spin and control for hard-hitting players, but how did it play for me?

Find out in this full Head Lynx Tour playtest and review.

Racket Setup for Testing

head lynx tour review

I have used Head Lynx Tour a couple of times in a Wilson Blade 98 , but I paired it with the Head Boom MP for this playtest , which I was reviewing.

The pack I had was grey colour in at 1.25mm. I used the portable MiStringer to string it as a two-piece job at 45lbs.

In terms of the six-sided hexagonal shape, the edges are not so pronounced and pre stringing; it almost looks round until you look at it more closely.

Stringing was comparable to all polyesters. The coil memory wasn’t significant, and it was pretty soft to handle.

luxilon element forest green

It has a chunky/weighty feel, but this isn’t a problem. The Boom MP is also an easy racket to string, so it was a straightforward job.

Head Lynx Tour Playtest

lynx tour boom mp

I have used Head Lynx Tour on several different surfaces, but I tested it on indoor hard courts before writing this review.

Initial Thoughts and How It Felt

When I first used Head Lynx, given the string has quite a high dynamic stiffness and visually looks quite chunky, I was expecting a somewhat muted and stiff response.

However, the string has a softer feel, giving a level of feeling that belies its actual stiffness rating. It is still stiff, but it errs more towards polyester’s ‘comfortable’ side.

I don’t know whether this is due to the coating on the strings or their composition, but there’s no harshness on off-centre hits, and it’s above average in the comfort department for a poly.

Based on that, Lynx Tour reminds me of Solinco Confidential and the recently reviewed Mayami Tour Hex , which are both strings I rate highly.

How It Played

head lynx tour playtest

For a polyester, the power potential of Lynx Tour is above average. It’s not free power because the string will not reward players with zero swing, but Lynx Tour certainly has some added pop if you take a decent cut at the ball.

Control for me relates to how consistent the stringbed response is, and Lynx Tour provides a very consistent one.

The launch angle was consistent (relatively low), and despite the string having a bit of pop, I never felt like I was sacrificing control.

When I was on top in the rallies, I could land the ball where I wanted, and the strings gripped nicely on my slice backhand.

Lynx Tour was also well behaved during the reaction type shots. I played on a fast indoor court where sometimes you only have one shot at your disposal, and the stringbed was able to respond how I wanted it to and keep the ball alive in faster-paced scrambling type rallies.

Comfort / Feel

Head Lynx Tour fits firmly in the middle ground for feel; it’s firm without being stiff but not mushy or muted. 

In terms of pocketing, there is some, but I never got the feeling the ball was sinking into the string bed as I did with Mayami Tour Hex.

I don’t have any arm problems to report, but Head Lynx Tour felt more comfortable than some other polys I’ve tried, putting it in the middle ground, not the softest, not the firmest.

The spin potential of Lynx Tour is high, and the hexagonal shape of the string combined with the slick external coating reduces friction during impact, increasing snapback and spin potential.

I am more of a flat hitter than a loopy topspin player, and the launch angle with Lynx Tour combined with the Boom MP works nicely for my game – flat but with enough spin to add some margin.

Depending on the racket’s head size and string pattern, I think players who like the loopier dipping launch angle will prefer other polys or will need Lynx Tour in a thinner 18 gauge to get that type of loop.

So if you are a player who wants to clear the net by 2 metres and bounce the ball head high, there are better string choices for that.

Durability and Price

The durability of Head Lynx Tour is on a par with most polyesters, maybe slightly above, and players who put polyester strings through their paces will get 10-14 hours out of it.

While I wouldn’t recommend keeping a polyester in for an extended period like you can with a multifilament, I was impressed with how long Lynx Tour kept its characteristics. I think you can get away with using this string for longer without it going dead or plasticisation occurring.

Whenever I have strung a racket with it, I never felt I wanted a fresh set, or it suddenly got harder to keep the ball in play after that 5-10 hour mark.

Usually, with the softer poly, they play great for a short period but then drop off a cliff. However, the tension maintenance on Head Lynx Tour is probably the best amongst all polyester strings I have ever tested, putting up there alongside the likes of Dunlop Explosive Speed, Solinco Hyper G , MSV Focus Hex Ultra, Mayami Tour Hex and Solinco Confidential .

Who Is This String For?

head lynx tour closeup

In truth, despite their widespread usage, only about 5% to 10% of the tennis-playing population can genuinely use stiffer polyester strings.

However, with Head Lynx Tour, even though it has ‘Tour’ in the name, I think it’s more accessible to a broader group of players. 

While it’s not something you’d throw to an outright beginner, it has a bit of softness and liveliness, which makes it more of a versatile all-rounder when compared to other polyesters that are typically harsh and muted.

Still, this string is best suited to higher level players who have the technique and conditioning that makes the need for poly like spin and control a pre-requisite to keep the ball within the lines.

At the recreational level, for intermediates who are using polyesters but would benefit from a little bit more power and some more arm friendliness, Head Lynx Tour is one to consider.

It becomes an even better choice for a wide range of player abilities if you put it into a hybrid with a monofilament like Head Velocity MLT or natural gut.

Note: The grey-coloured string seems to be the softer/liveliest of the three colours available.

Final Thoughts

HEAD Lynx Tour is another decent polyester to add to the market’s ever-growing lineup of tennis strings.

Revolutionary? No. But it’s probably the best polyester string HEAD has made to date (yes, I know some would say this means very little as their previous polyester forays aren’t highly regarded), but overall, I liked it.

The one area it excels is tension maintenance and playing longevity. If that’s what you are after, this is undoubtedly one for the shortlist.

It sits firmly in the middle of the road for the other properties. So for players who operate at extremes, e.g., they need extreme spin or extreme feel, this isn’t for them. But if you like a blend of properties that do a few things pretty well, I’d recommend testing it out.

This string also works very well at a lowish tension in the Head Boom MP. The Boom MP is a racket that requires full, fast strokes to bring out its best features, and that’s also what Head Lynx Tour needs. 

Combine the two, and you bring out the best of both.

  • Excellent tension maintenance
  • Above-average comfort
  • Consistent response
  • Edges are not pronounced, so look elsewhere for those expecting a heavily shaped spin string.

Have you tried Head Lynx Tour? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments.

Control - 9.5

Comfort - 6.5, touch / feedback - 7, snapback - 9.5, durability and tension maintenance - 10.

HEAD Lynx Tour is another decent polyester to add to the ever-growing lineup of tennis strings on the market with excellent tension maintenance and playing longevity.

How did Thiem look in his match? I watched Stan but not Domi.

Just the opposite for me 😉 I have only watched small part of Stan’s match but the whole Dominic’s match.

There is covid (or not) and there is war in Ukraine (or not) and you believe, people are keen to try new strings? Rather Stingers I guess 😉 Yesterday Thiem made his comeback in Marbella. Lost the match but showed all his trademark shots. Looks like the wrist was no more a problem and general fitness high. Now he goes for Marrakesh and I expect him rising the game fast. Good decision to not make the comeback first in MC, because he would lose there to anyone and have only 1 match played before the clay season get’s on high tours. The same with Stan. Maybe both stay for some days more in Marbella to play practice matches together? Thet s what they need – playing matches, not friendly hitting, even if hard and intense.

Stan hit the ball well, but looked a bit rusty on movement and not quite able to work the points. Had a 4-1 lead second set though.

Quite the same with Domi. He was not trying to outfox the less experienced opponent to win the match, but rather to find his game. Which resulted in partly sharp shots – both backhand and forehand and nice dropshots. He looked very well conditioned. What was missing (and he confirmed this after the match), was some automatism in playing patterns like hit here and move there, looking like he was not able to read well his own game or forgot, where usually the opponent hits back after I hit to the line on the backhand side of the opponent. Or like he was hitting something and kind of waiting with decision about moving until the opponent (who showed big form for his ranking)made his shot – then it was of course too late to catch the ball. Not very much more UE’s than usual but too many serve errors. I take it positive – shots were there with good timing, no fears about hitting forehands, but the same as with Stan – “forgot” how to win points 😉 Don’t know about Stan, but Dominic goes now to play Marrakesh. Not He needs (Stan probably too) to play every tournament available, until deeper runs come. So for Dominic no more long breaks over clay. Marrakesh-Monte-Carlo-Serbia Open (instead of usual Barcelona)-Madrid-Rome (maybe Lyon if early exit in Rome)-Paris. I guess Stan will have similar program. Besides of the injury Thiem has had motivation struggles long before the injury, just after US Open and London 2020. But he looked motivated and happy to feel a player again 🙂

What do you think about Alcaraz? Some start to predict, he wins a slam and maybe goes for No. 1 before end of 2022.

Comparing Stan’s and Dominic’s comebacks. Stan was 4:1 and lost. Dominic was 0:5 in first , made re-break at at 1:5, then had 2 chances to re-break and level the set at 3:5, but could not convert. Somehow the Argentine did play a lot better than expected and was able to read Dominic’s weak points and exploit them. But given both had no physical problems, I expect they will both do a lot better next tournament. Not sure, where is Stan now going to play.

So Thiem is covid positive. There’s more covid than ever before, yet it’s not in the news any more. How weird!

But he’s vaccinated?

Why do you think, it’s weird? Covid is no news anymore. Ukraine starts to no more be news anymore. We need something else 😉 Putin or Biden must die under suspicious circumstances or something. Or at least Zhelensky.

Maybe next news will be energy bills and broken supply chains all over the world. Let’s think about autonomy mode. Produce energy yourself. Produce food yourself. Don

… Don’t use anything from abroad. Forget Internet and computers. Go back to the nature!!!

Europe is screwed, the USA is screwed. Rouble reserve currency?

I can see the lights going off in Europe this winter.

Europe will heat itself with sweaters (according to German proposition). Germany has large experience in creating substitutes 😉 Everyone gets personal dynamo and will produce electricity for all own needs. No pedaling, no light 😉 UK has at least enough wool 🙂

HEAD Lynx Tour is a good string, it is the best poly they have produced in my opinion.

If I understand it correctly you tested the grey version. What is the source of this information: “The grey coloured string is the softest/liveliest of the three colours available. So if you want the softer feeling Lynx Tour, go with grey. Both the orange and champagne play firmer” ?

Lab testing.

Head Lynx Tour Grey has a lower dynamic tension than Orange and Champagne.

Head Lynx Touch 16/1.30 String

We will match or beat any posted overall price advertised in-store or online on in stock items.

This innovative co-polyester monofilament has impressive comfort for a control string

Introducing Lynx Touch ! With this string, Head serves up a versatile co-poly with impressive comfort and touch. Unlike the stiff construction of a traditional polyester monofilament, Lynx Touch benefits from a co-extrusion process that places a soft and elastic material inside a durable and translucent polymer matrix. In addition to giving you the control to attack the ball from the baseline, Lynx Touch delivers surprisingly good feel around the net. Poly players in search of a more responsive and comfortable option should give this string a serious look. It also makes a good starter poly for those new to the breed.

  • Gauge: 16/1.30mm
  • Length: 40ft/12m
  • Composition: Co-extruded co-polyester monofilament
  • Color: Grey
