Currently a HS player. I've never really messed around with strings ,but I think its time I get my rackets restrung. Right now I'm in between rackets a Babolat pure drive roddick ,and a Wilson k blade 98. I never really knew what my rackets were strung with , but I think I can see Wilson sensation 17 on one of the strings. I like the string i DON'T want to go to far from the feel of that string, but I could use maybe a little more power/spin. I play a mostly flat game with some slice backhands thrown in. Need string with good durability also. (Almost never break strings.) Any suggestions would be great thanks! P.S. not much cash to spare:cry:

If you hit a relatively flat ball, and you are looking for more power, best option is all nat. gut, and since you are not a string breaker, that set up will play well until it breaks, so could be economical as well.

But if price is problem then:

I would go with a decent multifiliment string, like Prince Synthetic Gut Multifilament , (many other decent multi strings as well like xcell, or Tecnifibre X-One Biphase ,NRG, or many other decent multifilament string as that would give some more power, and comfort as well.

If I were you, I'd stay with a multifilament. There are cheap multis (~$8) and expensive (~$16). You do have a few to choose from. Definitely choose a 17g if you are not a frequent string breaker. You don't want those strings in there too long anyways.
