Just curious if there are any good Orange colored strings out there....i haven't really taken the time to explore myself. I have a handful of microgel radicals that would look sweet with an orange string......thanks!

I just ordered some Signum Pro Poly Plasma 17...bright orange. It'll look crazy in my SP Tour. Haven't tried it yet. They also make a string with a hexagonal profile called HEXtreme.

--AG (Int'l) Fastasy Multi 15
--Weiss Cannon Match Power
--Wilson Super Spin Hex Syn. Gut
--Sunkist Zestspin 17

All previously mentioned strings are good choices. Just be advised that the Pacific strings are not really that orange-y in color because Pacific (formerly d/b/a Silas Mariner Industries) is a very cheap company when it comes down to "cost factors" and who is noted throughout the industry for skimping out on the dye in their strings.

Does the Sunkist string, i have heard so much about... does it have extra vitamin C, hence more orange color??? :) does that make it last longer?

Pacific Poly Force Extreme is an orange string. Not only is it orange, but it's also one of the best poly strings out there - try it :)

Take a look at Klip. I have Speedport Tours and I like the looks and the feel. It is a hybrid set-up that I order (Klip Doubles Pro???).

Yeah, unless you played for Clemson, Boise State, Auburn, Syracuse, Virginia, Florida, Tennessee or maybe Texas, getting orange strings to match your frame is a little poseur-ish. Better have some major game to back that look up, man.

SPPP is nice. also for more durability I find mixing a multi on the cross helps. SPPP seems to pop pretty quick in a full bed. atleast in my experience.

who exactly are you to call me out, and why do you care what color strings i use. i would say anything less than the color of the frame matching a school's colors would be considered "poser-ish". and since you're so concerned, i played D-1. 5.5.

Most have been mentioned already, Leopard Control+ is also one. It's more or less identical (So i hear) to premier Ace. I hear Gamma is coming out with a new poly or two in orange (rather, I've physically seen some play test sets...)

Yeah, me too, I read your signature. Sorry you think I am a d!ck!
I absolutely did understand that you meant that you wanted strings to match your racquet.
Like you, I played D I college tennis and I'm a 5.5 as well. We ought to hit sometime. Unfortunately I do not make it out to Pittsburgh much.

Yes, the Pacific X-Force Transparent Tangerine is a really cool color.

Go to tennis warehouse and look up string colors and test them. It is what you prefer.
