View Full Version : String Recommendation Wanted

10-16-2006, 04:00 AM
I have been using Wilson Sensation for some time now because I needed an elbow-friendly string. However, now that I am hitting the ball harder and with more topspin the durability of this string has become an issue.

I'm looking for a string that is still easy on the arm but also is spin-friendly and has some pop. Any recommendations?

Might want to try a gut hybrid. Gut in the mains and a synthetic gut in the crosses. Not much more money than what you are using .

hybriding isnt for everyone really.. there are alot of options you can do before hybriding.

i would try nxt max and livewire xp.

Alpha Sphere is easy on the arm, yet has good control. The first time I played with it, I'd aim the ball to a corner, hit it, the ball would feel as if it were going long, but would land where I aimed it. Odd feeling. After the first time I hit with it, it was great. This is probably my most used multi now for people I string for.

Try Prince's Premier with Softflex then.
