Pro strings in pre poly times
I know most guys used NG before poly was available. but have there been pros using other stuff than NG? if so who were them? and which materials?

any equipment history experts out here?:)

I strung at a few events in the old days and gut was, by far, the string of choice. However, a few Prince players used Prince Synthetic Gut back in the 80s, believe it or not (and Agassi with ProBlend before switching to Kevlar/gut as noted above). I don't remember any hybrids at all back then except ProBlend.

What gauge and tension did Courier use? What about other players with a similar set up?

I believe Muster used IsoSpeed Classic at ungodly high tension back in the 90s.
