Synthetic Strings, Began with GOSEN
GOSEN developed the world's first synthetic racket string in 1954. Now, we are the largest string manufacturer.
GOSEN was founded in 1951 in Osaka, Japan as a fishing line and fishing net manufacturer made of nylon. 1954, a racket manufacturer was looking for a substitute of natural strings for wooden badminton rackets to be exported to Southeast Asia. GOSEN thought that it would be possible to apply the techniques of making nylon fishing lines. After a prototype was made, GOSEN developed the 'HY-SHEEP' synthetic string with exceptional durability and outstanding performance at a low cost. Orders flooded from racket manufacturers, and from here on GOSEN began manufacturing first-class strings for rackets.
BEYOND THE POSSIBLE, we are the first manufacturer of synthetic strings in Japan. We have been developing and manufacturing various tennis strings since 1954 to meet the needs of all players. Now, we provide the largest variety of tennis strings in the world.
FEEL THE POWER, the supreme resilience and crisp hitting sound. Our core thread is essential for the hitting sound and resilience performance. The side thread protects the core thread from friction at the time of impact. By increasing the adhesion of the threads with our new manufacturing method "Microfusion" technology. A synergistic effect is created, and we succeeded in ameliorating the hitting sound, resilience, and durability at a high level.
NO COMPROMISE, our common manufacturing policy throughout all the products. We selected the best non-woven fabric and developed a new coating method, creating the best over grips for players who aspire to outstanding results in games. Years spent on the development and creation of over grips with care is what makes our products unmatched by any other.
THE INNOVATION, a sound that pierces the air. That's what you can expect from GOSEN rackets. It's sharper and faster. And it's not just because of the specs. It's also because of the innovative design. GOSEN rackets will help you make those critical shots that pierce through your opponent's defence. Get out there with GOSEN rackets and show the world that you can achieve BEYOND THE POSSIBLE.
