L-TEC Premium strings were founded in 2011. The strings and
accompanying stringing system are the culmination of over 20 years of
research, string design and development by John Elliot. Mr. Elliot,
sometimes referred to as the “Father of Polyester Strings,” has more
than 20 years experience in creating and manufacturing top quality
monofilament co-polymer and polyester tennis strings. He has been
instrumental in developing some of the most successful and well-known
racquet strings in the market today. His refusal to be bound by
conventional thinking has allowed him to become one of the great
innovators in the world of tennis strings and stringing technology. His
animated passion and creative approach to quality stringing makes him
an immensely popular speaker and stringing instructor.
L-TEC as a brand name is an acronym that stands for "Low-Tension, Energy & Control." L-TEC is proud of its deep and rich international roots. While designed by a French engineer, the string is produced in Great Britain. Intense playtesting is conducted by a wide range of players including professionals and highly ranked amateurs from Argentina, Canada, France, and the United States. L-TEC was initially released in the United States and after several months of studying player response was given clearance to be released to the world market.
The L-TEC products and stringing system are much more than a new
product line. They represent a new paradigm…an exciting new way of
enabling tennis players to reach their on-court potential. The strings
