These are all good strings for the price, good values if you will. There's a bit of overlap in your list. You have 4 basic solid core syn guts, for instance.

So would you suggest taking out a few of the basic syn. gut?

There's nothing wrong with experimenting with different strings :-), but they are similar in the way they play is all.

Ok, thanks for the input. However, what would you suggest to swap the basic syn. guts with. I would greatly appreciate your input on that.

I would substitute one of the Laserfibre multifilament strings for either Powerplay or Prince Orig Syn Gut(they are very similar). Laser Supreme is a very poplular multi because it holds it's tension better than most multis and it has a firmer feel.

Sounds like you are going to be doing some experimentation. Thats the best way to find out what works best for you.

I plan on buying my own stringing machine and doing the same. I don't like waiting 2 days for the club to string, plus they don't really have a good variety.

I vote for you try either the perfection or Perfection control. They are kind of dead feeling but you might enjoy the control.
