Types of Strings

Synthetic Gut (Nylon)

A good string choice if you’re looking for power, control and affordability.  This is a solid string for beginners and those casual players.

When looking for more comfort, we recommend trying out a multifilament string instead. If you’re looking for more control and spin, we recommend trying a poly string.

Multifilament

Multifilament strings were developed to try and bring synthetic strings closer to the playability of natural gut, which makes it a great choice when you’re looking for a string with great overall playability. This is an ideal string for power, high comfort and holds tension well.

Multifilament strings offer reduced shock and vibrations, which makes it arm friendly.

When looking for a more durable and affordable string, we recommend that you try using a synthetic gut string.

Poly & Co-poly

As one of the most popular strings, a poly string is known for its durability, spin and control. This makes poly strings an excellent option for hard hitters who tend to break strings easily and for those players from an intermediate level.

When looking for a poly string with a little more comfort, we recommend trying out a co-poly string.

Not recommended for players that suffer from arm injuries.

Natural Gut

This string remains the gold standard for power, comfort, feel and tension maintenance.

For those highly competitive players who are working on all aspects of their game, then a natural gut string might be an excellent fit for you.

Ideally for indoor play.

Tensions, Gauges & Hybrid Stringing

Tensions

To get the best performance out of your racket, then the tension you string at can make a significant difference to your game. The higher the tension, the less power and the more control you have. Lower tensions generate more power but also have less control.

If you don’t know what tension to use, we recommend starting mid-way between your rackets recommended tension range. The key here is to experiment with different tensions to find your preferred one.

String TensionPowerControlDurability  Feel  Comfort
LooserMoreLess MoreMoreMore
TighterLess MoreLessLessLess
Gauges

As well as the composition of string, most strings are available in different gauges. The gauge signifies the thickness of the string. A string with a high gauge number is a thinner string and vice versa. Thinner strings generally offer higher performance (more spin and comfort) but are not as durable as thicker strings.

Tennis string gauges range from 15 to 18 but most players use 16 or 17 gauge. You will also see the letter L used such as 16L. The ‘L’ signifies ‘light’ which represents half a gauge size.

String GaugeElasticityDurabilitySpinFeelComfort
ThinnerMore LessMore More More 
Thicker Less More LessLessLess
Hybrid Stringing

A hybrid string setup is the use of two different strings in the mains and cross strings of a racket. The variation in strings can be as extreme or as subtle as you choose. When hybrid stringing, typically, the aim is to be getting the best out of both strings.

We have a variety of hybrid combinations to choose from, so please contact us to discuss your requirements.
