Can you use racquet ball strings to string tennis racquets?

Sure, you can. It's very rare to see. It's quite common to see "tennis strings" used for racquetball. For some years now, I use only tennis strings for racquetball frames.

Some of the racquetball strings I have used for tennis usually ended up being very soft and elastic but broke pretty fast. I don't think they are meant to be as durable since they don't seem to have the same type of coating.

Eh really? how does such a thick string fit through your frame?

I strung my racquetball frame with Gosen 15L tennis string. Didn't have any problems...

Tennis strings and racquetball string gauges overlap. I have some very hard hitting racquetball player customers, and 15L keeps them going.

HOWEVER, E-Force's new Super 30 has 4 rows of holes in the butt and they have decreased the diameter of them so that 15L doesn't fit. E-Force likes 17 ga. strings. I have customers who play with them for a month before breaking. They are good players and $ are not the issue; they want longer string life/less hassle.
