I've noticed many people in the string section have been leaning to more economically priced strings lately. So I think it would be only fitting for people to post their ultimate string setups under $10, $15, and $20.

Specify which Category, then give the name of the string(s), guage, your preferred tension, and total cost.

Then rate the string on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best) for:
Feel/Control
Comfort
Durability
Tension Maintenance
Tension life compared to string life.

I'll come back and update this first post with all of the strings you post.

Are we talking reels or sets? Because most people don't/can't afford to buy a full reel...

Under $5:
For a reel only:
Big Ace about 3.75 per stringjob
Topspin Cyberflash about 3.75 a stringjob
For a set:
OG Sheep Micro 3 dollars set, 2 dollars reel
Forten Sweet 3 dollar sets, 2 dollar reels
Prince Synthetic Gut Duraflex 3.75 sets

Under $10:
I'm not sure...

Under $20:
VS Gut/Forten Sweet- 18 bucks
Klip Legen/Forten Swet-13.50 bucks

I gave Isospeed Baseline Long Life + Control a try its gauge is 15L paid $46 with shipping so thats like $3 to string a full racquet.
I like these strings alot, they give me very good spin potential and contol.
To me they feel to have alittle more power than other polys so I string them a couple of pounds higher than normal. Normally sting pollys at 55.

Also bought a reel of Goosen Og sheep Micro g16 for $36 with shipping and will try to hybrid it with Isospeed, will let you know how it works out
