    Title says it all, what are the pros and cons for each??? Which one is better for the arm? I am new to stringing which explains my three threads in 2 days in this section haha. Also say which one you prefer.

    for me it depends on the racket but i prefer multi. softer on the arm, more feel, and more power. synthetic/nylon are typically more crisp but dont fray like multis.

    That's about it.
    As a full bed, multi is more comfortable and powerful than syngut, but less durable, in general.
    There are exceptions.
    e.g. Mantis Comfort Synthetic is less powerful than most Multis and almost as durable as Syngut
    LightningXX is a powerful Syngut and doesn't wear worth a #&*(
