MULTIfilament strings. All natural gut strings are made from multiple ribbons of gut wrapped together to make one string. Synthetic Gut uses nylon or some other man made material but multis are nothing more than one filament

see http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/LC/String/StringReference.html look for multifilament

multifilament strings are designed to simulate natural gut at a more modest price, although it is no where near natural gut in comparison. they are soft on the arm, higher powered than synthetic gut, and hold tension better. generally, they are composed of many many fibers braided together.
