STRING FORUM
Noel Barbulesco, USRS

 

 

Why are there so many different types of tennis strings?

 

The multitude of strings available today may seem confusing but each type of string has a unique set of characteristics.  Let's review the basic string materials and look at their strengths and weaknesses.

 

1.  Natural Gut - The "Gold Standard" of tennis strings.  Gut strings are the most elastic and thus provide the best combination of power, control and comfort.  The only downside is the cost - gut is the most expensive string on the market.

 

2.  Synthetic Gut - Made of nylon, synthetic gut is by far the most widely used string.  It is relatively inexpensive and provides a good balance of power and control.

 

3.  Multifilament Strings - These strings are made of many tiny strands of synthetic material that are designed to provide performance similar to natural gut.  The price is higher than standard synthetic gut but lower than real gut.  They have a nice soft feel that is easy on the arm plus good power and control. 

 

4.  Polyester - Polyester strings are very popular with the pro players with big swings.  They are very stiff and can produce heavy spin with excellent control.  Most polyesters feel 'boardy" and can be harsh on tender arms but work great if you are a big hitter that uses a lot of spin (Nadal...).

 

5.  Hybrids - Many players are using polyester strings in combination with a softer string to achieve a happy medium.  Polyester strings can be used in either the main or cross strings along with synthetic strings in the other direction.  This concept combines the stiff controlled feel of the polyester with the softer string to improve comfort and touch.

 

Here are some examples of each type of string with current pricing:

 

Natural Gut - Babolat Tonic $55

 

Synthetic Gut - Prince Synthetic Gut Dura $25

 

Multifilament - Prince Premier or Wilson NXT $35

 

Polyester - Babolat RPM or Luxilon Big Banger - $35

 

Hybrid - any blend of the above $35-$42
