Hi, Im just looking for some advice on how to pick strings.

My current racquet is the Head Microgel Prestige MP

Im looking for strings that give more control and touch compared to power.

I've been looking at alot of strings, but I cant figure out what I want to get. Is there like a website or something I can use to find these strings? I dont mind hybriding to get this kind of combo.

Oh and if its a hybrid I prefer a hard string in the mains and a soft string in the crosses

So hopefully someone reading this will be able to help!!!
Thanks!!

Start with a standard synthetic gut and go from there.

stringforum DOT net (replace DOT with . ) rates strings per attributes. quite helpful IMO.

Yes, I use that site too. But keep in mind that the ratings are subjective.

You may want to compare what you find there with the scientific results from RSI.
