    I've noticed many people in the string section have been leaning to more economically priced strings lately. So I think it would be only fitting for people to post their ultimate string setups under $10, $15, and $20.

    Specify which Category, then give the name of the string(s), guage, your preferred tension, and total cost.

    Then rate the string on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best) for:
    Feel/Control
    Comfort
    Durability
    Tension Maintenance
    Tension life compared to string life.

    I'll come back and update this first post with all of the strings you post.

    $5.....

    Topspin Cyberflash - 3.75 (Reel)

    Are we talking reels or sets? Because most people don't/can't afford to buy a full reel...

    Under $5:
    For a reel only:
    Big Ace about 3.75 per stringjob
    Topspin Cyberflash about 3.75 a stringjob
    For a set:
    OG Sheep Micro 3 dollars set, 2 dollars reel
    Forten Sweet 3 dollar sets, 2 dollar reels
    Prince Synthetic Gut Duraflex 3.75 sets

    Under $10:
    I'm not sure...

    Under $20:
    VS Gut/Forten Sweet- 18 bucks
    Klip Legen/Forten Swet-13.50 bucks

    I gave Isospeed Baseline Long Life + Control a try its gauge is 15L paid $46 with shipping so thats like $3 to string a full racquet.
    I like these strings alot, they give me very good spin potential and contol.
    To me they feel to have alittle more power than other polys so I string them a couple of pounds higher than normal. Normally sting pollys at 55.

    Also bought a reel of Goosen Og sheep Micro g16 for $36 with shipping and will try to hybrid it with Isospeed, will let you know how it works out
