helpful guides to choosing a string

Types of Strings

Synthetic Strings
Nylon (Sythetic Gut / Multifilament)

Developed to try and bring synthetic strings closer to the playability of natural gut. This makes it a great choice when you’re looking for a string with great overall playability, affordability and durability. Basic synthetic gut strings are a solid choice for beginners and casual players.

Although, when looking for more power and comfort, we recommend trying out a nylon multifilament string instead. Nylon multifilament strings offer reduced shock and vibrations, which makes it arm friendly.

Co-poly

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

*Not recommended for juniors, beginners or players that suffer from arm injuries.

Aramid (Kevlar)

The most durable string available, Kevlar is a very stiff string which makes it the least comfortable and least powerful strings.

*Not suitable for juniors or players that suffer from arm injuries.

Natural Gut

Looking for ultimate playability?…then natural gut 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, although decreases the sweet spot area. Lower tensions generate more power but also gives less control.

If you don’t know what tension to use, then 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.

Badminton string gauges range mostly from 0.61mm to 0.70mm.

String GaugePowerDurabilitySpinFeelComfort
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.

While we inspect and take special care when stringing each racket, we cannot be held responsible for any damages such as scratches, paint chips or cracks of any kind to any rackets.

We will not be held responsible for any damages incurred during the stringing process if a racket is strung outside of the maunfacturers recommended tension range. If requested, this will be at the owners risk.

We will not be held responsible for replacing / repairing any broken strings once your rackets have left our possession.
