Grapplesnake Game Changer String Review

by Jonas Eriksson

The Grapplesnake Game Changer is a four-sided neon green polyester string. It is focused on creating lots of spin without hurting your arm.

Grapplesnake is an up-and-coming string brand from Germany. I have tested several of their strings in the past and the overall experience has been very positive. For previous reviews, look at the list below, and then you can move along to the Grapplesnake Game Changer string review.

Grapplesnake Game Changer String Review

Four-sided strings (cube-shaped) are not the most fun to string, but they can produce excellent spin and control on your shots. It is not fun because the sharp edges make it a bit more demanding to work with, but luckily, Game Changer has minimal coil effect, making it easier to string than most other 4-sided strings.

I tested Game Changer in two racquets: the Yonex Ezone Tour 98 and my customized Wilson Six One 95 nCode 16×18. A few advanced (ex-tour) players tested the string alongside me in the Ezone and the response was very positive. It is far softer than you would expect but still produces excellent control and spin potential. It was so soft, it almost felt a bit too soft at times (I tend to enjoy slightly stiffer strings myself), but most elbows would be happy about that.

This string can be useful in racquets with denser patterns where you want to open up for more bite and elevation on the ball. I happily noticed this effect in the 95 sq inch Six One. In the Ezone Tour, it felt like a natural complement, and it lasted longer than I expected. I felt ready to cut it out after 8-10 hours of play, but this is a good stat for an aggressively shaped string.


Overall, a very good 4-sided string for advanced players looking for spin and control. My friend Miguel actually liked it so much that he asked me where to get a reel.

You can get the Grapplesnake Game Changer here. Tennis Warehouse Europe carries their Cube string, which I used in my Wilson Clash 98 V1 and also enjoyed, but I have only seen Game Changer on the official website.

Is this very similar to a Solinco Hyper G?

Nah, it is little softer and more aggressively shaped.

First I want to congratulate you to an superb page for us tennis neards.
I started to look at these strings and found out that they now also are available here in Europe,
so I think I will give them a try.

Kiitos, Patrick!

I know this post is a bit older now, but I’m curious if anyone has been using this strong long-term? I’m interested to try it but a bit hesitant; the last time I used a very aggressively shaped string (it might have been Ultra-Cable) I actually saw it gradually shred the grommet holes! Anyone found this to be an issue with this string?

Interested to get your review or opinion of Grapplesnake Irukandji as a cross string in a gut poly hybrid. I have read a bit on this string and it seems to be highly regarded for this purpose along with Luxilon ALU Power Rough, Tier One Ghostwire, Yonex Poly Tour FIRE 17, Volkl V Square 19, Solinco Tour Bite 19, and Solinco Hyper-G 20. How does this string rank in your opinion as a cross string in a gut poly hybrid and what are your personal favorites?

What tension do you recommend on the ezone tour 98?
I just bought the string and wanted to use it with 24-25kg

TN March 19, 2023 - 19:08

I would go down a bit as it can be stiff otherwise, maybe 22-23 kg
