Hi,

I would pick-up Prince Syn Gut, Prince Syn Gut with DuraFlex, A nice low -end.. nice playing poly and some Wilson Sensation. 16 and 17. That should take care of most your customer base.

Regards,
Steve

Being new to the string world, what would a low level nice playing poly consist of?

Yes...very good string. Steve Huff uses quite a few of the Alpha Products.. he is the man to talk to. If Steve is putting Alpha in his own frames.. you know the string is well tested and evaluated.

This depends a lot on your intended/expected customer base: how often they hit, how frequently they break string, whether they wait to restring until they do, how many have arm problems, and what main characteristic they want from each of the string(s) you'd supply. The answers here will help you decide *how many of each type* to keep in stock, as well.

If your customer base consists of a lot of juniors, I'd recommend picking up some Luxilon Big Banger Original and Big Banger ALU Power; many juniors with whom I play use these strings.

(2) Wilson NXT 16 (very popular @ da club)
(3) Wilson Sensation (cheap alternative multi)
(2) Technifibre Ematrix16 (same as above)
