    All,

    I am the proud papa of a talented 8 yr old competitive tennis player and was looking for advice on a soft but powerful multi to help my daughter generate more power from the baseline. We are currently using NXT 17 and like it but feel there may be other even more powerful options avail? Can anyone help with a few suggestions??

    Try Pro Supex Maxim Touch 17. Genesis Xplosion is another powerful string in the 16g version but I thought it was a little too springy. Both are quite soft so they will be gentle on the arm.

    Try any Natural Guts, Babolat XCel Power 17, or Tecnifibre X-One Biphase 17.

    Too finicky of a string for the price. No prestretch, it plays fantastic the first few hours. With a prestretch, it is just another good multi.

    Alpha Sphere. It is the most powerful multi I've ever used.

    Or, drop 2 lbs on her current setup and she has more power. Or add 3 grams of lead to the handle and 3 grams of lead to the head, and presto more power and stability. Or, add lead and drop tension 2 lbs, presto mucho power.

    Most good multi's like NXT, X1 BiPhase, NRG2, Excel, ... are going to be very close in power levels with subtle differences. These 4 are all very good and I would go with the one that she likes the best and adjust tension to optimize power and control. Tension should be lower for comfort and power, and higher for control. If she says balls are flying on her, tension is too low.

    X-one biphase is excellent but expensive. Tourna Quasi Gut is cheaper and really soft with a lot of power and ball pocketing!

    The other difference is X1 is a bit more crisp than Quasi Gut.
