Ryan Burbary is the founder and owner of Velociti Tennis. Velociti Tennis is a new tennis brand, with one of their products being the first bio-degradable tennis string in the world. It is called Catalyst and after testing the string I had to reach out to Ryan and talk about it. Ryan grew up in tennis stores and strung his first racquet when he was 12. A true tennis nerd!
