    I've read many times believe that Tecnifibre makes NXT and probably Sensation. It also seems that Gosen probably makes Synthitic Gut Extreme.

    Anyone have any comments on this and what companies are making some of Wilson's newest strings?

    Wilson is the global distributed for Luxilon, hence why ALU Power is sold in Champions Choice packs.

    I believe that Wilson makes their own string except for natural gut. Babolat makes Wilson's natural gut.

    Wilson, some years ago, had a contest where the winner got to go to France and see the factory where NXT strings were made. Give you 2 guesses.

    So in short:
    Babolat make their gut
    Technifibre make their multis
    Luxilon make their polys
