    Yonex Tour Super 850 16 is a good option - do a search as a lot has been said about this string.

    that's not a synthetic gut...it's a multi

    like donut said...all synthetic guts move...i haven't tried one synthetic gut that didnt move a lot. if i had to choose one though...i'd probalby go with gosen og micro 16

    Does the word 'tension' help? I use PSGD 18 on my crosses at 60 lbs or so and it rarely moves. I am really moved by it.

    what do you have on your mains? because if it's a stiffer string like poly...any string wouldnt move much. i had a full job of wilson stamina 16 on my redondos...and my strings were dancing the tango...moving all over the place

    Yes, its a poly. Pacific force 18 at 62. Now this is on my prostaffs. On my current frame, the volkl dnx 10 I have the same strings but at a lower tension (56 lbs). There is some movement but thanks to the dense pattern its not too noticeable. Even within PSGD there's a lot of differences depending on gauge and colour.

    To me, it was Gamma synthetic gut. It felt very firm and there's somewhat
    dead feeling. It had the least movement from my experiences.
    (have used PSG, PSGD, Gosen, Wilson, Ashaway, Toalson, Babolat Head, Forten synthetic
    guts...)

    I would be willing to bet that there is a direct correlation between string movement (or lack thereof) with durability.


    Maybe search for durable syn guts, as you are more likely to find them under that classification as opposed to movement.

    String movement can best be addressed though added tension. Then, there is stringer technique; a good stringer can add a couple of lbs. to the crosses and make a difference that way. And there is always string savers to reduce cross string movement--the easiest of the three to adapt to.
