    I need tennis players opinion on this right here. please help as greatly as possible. Which strings are well better suited for the Prince O3 White Racquet? A Babolat Pro Hurricane 17 String or a Babolat Pro Hurricane 16 String? the 16 is thicker than the 17 one and i just want to know which is better?

    A thinner string will give you more feel and a little more pop, and the 16 will be more durable, but as your using pro hurriciane it will be fairly durable anyway.

    The thinner the string, the faster it does break; however, 16 gauge is thicker than 17gauge which is where you may be getting confused. The lower the number is, the thicker the string is.

    For O3 white, I will pick the 16 as the O port tends to eat up the string quickly.

    I'd go with 16g, too. O3's produce enough spin anyways.
