    Background: Took aobut 15 years off tennis.
    Back into the game and rated 4.0.

    I need to get strings and I am unsure what the best technology is now.

    Order of preference.

    1. Arm Friendly
    2. Arm Friendly (not a type-o)
    3. Durable
    4. Feel

    What is tension differences between Gut and Multifilament?

    Multifilaments satisfy your first, second, and fourth requirements. I like Gamma Revelation 17.

    The third is a decidedly relative term. Gamma Revelation 17 does not fit this very well.

    I have an aero pro dive gt. I know but I hit with it best.
    I hit a ton of spin. Would gut be better. I have chosen 55" tension x bifacto. Should I have chosen gut? A better multi? Or a single syn?

    I don't think you'll find a better multi than that... But with that said, I'd say a multi would be best. I personally stray from syn gut. Every consider a soft copoly?
