    Most players seem to be using different types of polys and gut. What other strings are used on the pro tour?

    There might be some Ashaway Liberty . . .

    But seriously . . . There are lots of stringing logs on here from tournaments.

    Mostly popular string on tour by far is Luxilon Alu Power, Luxilon BigBanger Original, Luxilon TIMO, Luxilon Big Ace and Alu Power Rough.

    Also Babolat Pro Hurricane and Pro Hurricane Tour is very popular.

    The new Babolat Revenge and Babolat RPM Blast is also catching on right now....

    Pacific, Tecnifibre and Signum polys are also pretty popular.......but not as popular as Luxilon and Babolat.

    Most used nat gut is Babolat VS by far, then followed by Wilson nat gut (which is made by Babolat anyways) and then Pacific Nat gut.
