    I'm gettin ready to start a tennis program in an area where I'd be the only teaching pro around and I want to have stringing available to my players.. I want to have a reel of syn gut, poly, and a multi.. Right now I'm thinking psgd or gosen for the syn gut, prince tour for the poly(cause that's what I use) and sensation for the multi..
    If you guys have any suggestions on other strings that are better around the same price or cheaper, your input would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Tim

    Sensation is a pretty dated string now, having arrived on the tennis scene in 1994; compared to most multis today it's not very comfortable and it's not very durable too.

    If you're looking for value in a multi, I'd recommend Babolat's Addiction and/or its Attraction/Attraction Power. They'd both be somewhat more (roughly $140 to $99 for Sensation), but I think your clientele would be a lot happier unless you expect them not to notice. You can get Tecnifibre's Multifeel too for around $120 (though it still has a center core).

    I completely agree with Valjean... Stay away from NXT. There are so many better mutlis out there.

    Gauge: 17 / 1.25mm
    Length: 722 feet / 220m

    CF has a much better reputation on these boards, and is almost half the price for 20 meters more. You'll be glad you did.

    Mini-reels of KGut may be an option. Fills a niche at the right price ($34.95).
