    Like it say's I need choosing between the two and find the type of strings. Because I'm 16 and my arms,wrist,and elbows hurts if I play about 2 hrs or more.Dont know if its my swing,tension, or my lite racquet 10.9 oz the racquet was strung at 62 babolat excel prem about 9 months ago also stiffness is 68 dont play alot but seems only lost a couple pounds of tension because my play style is a pusher so I dont hit hard.I try rip the ball once in a while.Dont know if I should save up some money to get some low stiff racquets or like the title say chose between gut/co-poly or gut/multi.Cant afford all gut and again take any ideas about strings or getting a arm friendly stick and a gut/co-poly or gut/multi hybird like I said appreciate any suggestions.

    Neither is bad. But, if you opt for the copoly, string it in the crosses at about 5# lower tension than the mains. It will still feel fine. For a defensive type player, you string pretty tight anyway. You could always drop the tension some.

    Look to hybrid on my signature. It's the best out there for quality/price.

    If you're having arm / wrist / elbow problems don't even consider anything poly.


    Look into Tecnifibre Multifeel for $9 a set.

    If you have a relatively inexpensive stringer, just get some global gut. For the price you really can't go wrong...

    Gut really did prevent my T.E from getting any worse.

    hybrid

    If I were you I would go full og 17 for a while, buy a reel.
    You have too much tennis in front of you and elbow problems can be chronic if you don't let them heal and then do physical therapy.

    Also, I have seen some excellent players play a good brand of tennis using full jobs of og.
    Plays fairly similar to x-one

    Read the thread and look closely at the pictures. Especially the one with the Gaucho package. ;)
