    The USRSA -United StatesRacquet Stringers Association - issued the best string in 2008.

    http://www.racquetsportsindustry.com/articles/2008/01/usrsa_members_choice_awards_1.html

    I compiled an excel file with all info and added the price on Tennis-Warehouse. In this way I as able to calculate the quality / price value for each string.

    Obviously that cheapper strings wil have a greater "value". This parameter is usefull to compare strings with simmilar overall rating.

    You can check the excel file in: http://www.sitexpress.pt/clientes/sx006/ficheiros/ficheiro_86.xls

    For my playing specifics and for a smal price my favorites are:

    Gamma Live Wire XP
    Gamma Live Wire
    HEAD FXP Power
    HEAD FXP
    HEAD FiberGEL

    You will need to re-evaluate this survey as a quality index and not take it at face value. This is a sales gimmick of limited worth. You're better off relying on their string playtest ratings instead, which have some--albeit sometimes qualified--validity.

    I get your point. The data is not mine as you will understand.

    For each string they presente payabillity, duration, overall, etc.

    I think it will help people when choosing a string
