View Full Version : Recommended Multifilament Strings?

I have played with synthetic strings and poly strings, but I have not played with multifilament strings. I would like to give them a try so can anyone please recommend some good strings for me to test out? I hit with a lot of topspin so I am looking for any multifilament strings that compliment my topspin. By the way, do multifilament strings lose tension and go dead as quickly as some polys do (e.g. Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power, Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour)?

Oh and feel free to leave your opinion on multifilament strings.

There is a playability-durability continuum for multis--as there is with synthetic gut and natural gut too.

With your topspin, you will want to avoid disappointment and focus on the durability end, at least at first. Unless somehow you can tell us you are not very prone to break strings, despite it.

Babolat's Attraction/Attraction Power
Tecnifibre's TrC
Wilson's Reaction
Wilson's NXT Max

These are for you. Perhaps you will like them with string savers added on.

Head RIP Control is more durable than all of those ^..

I like NXT because it is very soft.

The tech Biphase string is really sweet for a soft feel.

If you are looking for more of a crisp feel then the Prince Multi or Gosen Multi are decent.

I like the rip control but felt it lost tension fast.

Just my $.02

I personally like the Prince Syn Gut Multi better than X-1...much more crisp after the break in period. X-1 starts crisp, then gets very soft and the strings walk quite a bit. The strings will still walk with the Prince, but not as much. I still my multis a little tighter than regular syn gut.

I wanted this as my replacement for gut in bad conditions but it's always backordered.

Ended up going with HEAD RIP control, which isn't even close to gut, but it does feel pretty nice.

I'm sticking with my ashaway dynamite 17, best multi for me, only next to how comfortable dunlop mfil tour 16 is on my arm (but loses it's "pop" too quick). I hybrid these two together with ashaway on mains both at same tension, or mains at 2lbs lower.

I just started to use K-Gut Pro 16 last Saturday and I'm really liking it so far.

Then, try out Wilson's K-Gut *Pro*, Babolat's Xcel *Power*, Wilson's NXT *OS* (which may prove best for you, too!), and/or Laserfibre's Supernatural XRC Phenom...

Gamma Livewire Professional 17 for touch and feel.

You've put your finger right on the one lack PSGM, otherwise a fine string, may have when compared to the best premium multis.

Yonex Tour Super 850 Pro. Really nice. More easy to control than X1 biphase from my experience, but X1 really is a great multifilament.

I agree with downdaline on Yonex Tour super 850, great string but the one I keep going back to is UNIQUE TOURNAFIBER IRRADIATED 17ga a great string for a great price. I also like the Gamma Revelation I'm using now.

The Yonex 850 is a great string at its price and hold its tension really well. It holds it tension well, and offers very good control.
