KIZUNA Strings


String-Test 2020

KIZUNA Z58 Premium - 0,58 mm in the test

KIZUNA, a Japanese company that is still relatively unknown in Europe, has established itself as one of the most popular string manufacturers in Asia in recent years. Responsible is Mr. Abe Hideo, who founded KIZUNA in 2013 and stands for the production and distribution of badminton strings and equipment "Made in Japan". As a long-time badminton trainer and former national coach, Mr. Hideo has made it his goal to develop good badminton strings that support the game of amateur players. Many recreational badminton players lack physical condition and technique. And this is exactly where KIZUNA comes in. Good badminton strings should make you feel like a better player. BADLAB racket team tested to which extent KIZUNA achieved this goal.

KIZUNA Z58 Premium - 0,58 mm 1 2 3 4 5   Average
1. The string conveys a good feel for the stroke (touch/feedback) - - - - 5   5
2. The string shows good elasticity and shock damping performance - - - 1 4   4,8
3. The string retains its elasticity (trampoline effect) for a long time - - - 5 -   4
4. The string supports a good length on clears - - - 2 3   4,6
5. The string supports underhand clear and defense - - - 1 4   4,8
6. The string offers good control during short net play - - - - 5   5
7. The string offers a rich, controlled power transmission on hard smashes. - - 1 2 2   3,8
8. The string impresses with a good hitting sound - - - - 5   5

Evaluation: The KIZUNA Z58 Premium / Medium - 0.58 mm has received special attention from our testers due to its status as the thinnest string in the world. It exceeded all expectations and was the only string to achieve the unanimous top value of 5.0 in 3 categories - namely for "good feel (touch / feedback)", for "control during short play" and nothing else to be expected in the categories: "Sound". In the other disciplines, too, the KIZUNA Z58 only just missed the maximum values. But the weak point of extremely thin strings also came to light in the evaluation of “controlled power transmission with hard smashes”. Nevertheless, an impressive 3.8 was scored here. We can recommend this string to all players for whom good feedback and feel (with an incomparable sound!) is more important than extreme durability.
