    I switched rackets to the Rquis 1 Tour and want to start with a non-poly string. Who has some advice for moi? Thanks!

    Switching from a Babolat to a Yonex RQiS is quite significant (in racquet difference that is). If anything, try using just a regular synthetic gut, then work your way up...
    What made you want to move away from the poly?

    Try yonex' 850 pro. It is, in my opinion, a very nice multi that was quite playable and had better resistance to movement than most. Plus, its not that expensive.

    I haven't played in about six months due to my cycling schedule, and I've felt some tenderness in my arm. The Yonex isn't as stiff as my babolat, and I can generate enough power on my own. Great question though!

    Cheers,

    How long do you find it lasts? I'm not much of a string breaker, but I've also improved quite a bit and been using poly obviously so I don't know if I've become one :).

    I should add, I'm open to all suggestions!!

    Cheers,

    If you not a string breaker try full gut. Its going to give you the best preformance . You could also try Technifibre NRG or x-one

    im not a string breaker and i broke yonex 850 in 2-3 hours its a great string very soft but damn it breaks 2 quick.

    for a comparison i break syn gut in 1.5 weeks. i play 2 hours a day on average
