    hi my brother is 10 and plays a real aggressive game with lots of spin.
    he breaks strings about every three weeks.
    i was thinking about some soft poly, what do you think? thanks

    Could you state what racket he's using? I asked a similar question before (for a 9yr old)

    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=220435

    If you want to look at that thread. I would say maybe some soft poly, but it depends on the racket. I mean, if he's using a PD, don't give him something else that could give him arm problems. On the other hand, if he has a soft and forgiving racket some soft poly (cyberblue, big ace, SPPP). Definitely hybrid it.

    Breaks a string in 3 weeks? Haha, that kinda fast. Faster than anyone on my school's JV team, lol.

    no polys!

    Dont need to use polys in that age!
    Break strings once on 3 weeks is good...
    Use multifilaments until 14 or 15, then hibrid...
    If you insist poly full job, then go under 50 lbs, please...:(

    breaking strings once every three weeks is not very clear. approximately how many hours does he play in those three weeks? it could be three or it could be 100. Also, Pro Supex Big Ace is definetly a string to try, as it is soft and forgiving for a poly.

    dont go with a poly. any poly, no matter how soft, will hurt a 10 year old's arm. i'd go with a good multi like x-1 biphase.

    I would stay with thin gauge multis, NRG, Xcel Premium, NXT Tour.

    would that be a good choice?

    I think it would, but if he plays that much and breaks it that quickly, it'll get kind of expensive. I'm not too sure he would notice the difference, either. I'd say just go with a good multi, full bed.
