    Hey everyone i have a Head Tis2 that i need new strings for. I had synthetic gut 16 on there before and i didnt really like it because it would move around way to much. What string could i use thats a solid string and is going to stay in place more? Thanks.

    The tiS2 has been around awhile, so if this is the first restring, I can see why they were moving around. First, get a competent stringer to look at your racket and make a suggestion. A poly hybrid would fit the bill, but without seeing you play, or knowing more about the last racket stringing, I'd be remiss in recommending it.

    How long have you played with those strings? Strings continue to lose tension and playability as they age. If you never break strings you should try a pack of the Gaucho Gut strings, gut will be playable much longer than a synthetic.

    Here's a good point to start looking for a better string. I still think you would be better off with gut, but you could also find a decent syn gut that costs very little and just restring more often.
