    I am a senior playing with the Babolat Aero Pro and want to find a string that is arm friendly but durable, if there's such a thing. Do you have any suggestions. Thanks

    Natural gut is your best friend if money doesnt matter to you Babolat VS gut is really good but if your trying to save money check out Mikeler's multis thread he has a bunch of multifilaments he reviews. check it out

    I wouldn't suggest gut it's too powerful and not good with an APD..

    My advice would be try a thicker gauge of string.

    I would suggest Polybifre TCS mains with Excel crossses. I just gave up on the APD, my elbow hurt a bit. Its the same dog with a different collar. I will buy VCore 97, 310 version, more stability, good spin, beautiful cosmetics, check video reviews in youtube. VCORE 100 S plays similar to APD, bigger sweetspot, less vibration.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I do have several packs of gut around the house. I keep you posted.

    Also i wouldnt' suggest soft multi's either, they too can be too powerful for an APD. I would suggest a soft poly strung low, between 40 and 50 lbs.

    ^^^^^^^

    Copolys in an Aero Pro is not an arm friendly string at all.
    I'd suggest Head RIP series, they are soft but have a lot of control since they are a low power string.
