    Advice needed: strings for junior

    I would strongly advise either a full bed of Yonex Rexis or a synthetic gut for him at this age. Let him focus on proper stroke dynamics and develop physically before moving to a poly setup.

    String for 11 yr old girl

    @batareikin If price is not an issue then you could consider either a full bed of either Tecnifibre HDMX 1.30 or Babolat Xalt 1.30, both will give you the arm protection of a multi, but performance close to a soft poly.

    Looking for string recommendations with a twist

    @yonexRx32 You can choose to believe anything you wish, that is the beauty of freedom of thought. I choose to believe those numbers because I am familiar with RP and their evaluation process and have found a high degree of correlation with their results and real world experience.

    What type of string is Babolat RPM Soft?

    It is a monofilament, not multifilament constructed string. Directly from Babolat's website "Babolat RPM Soft tennis string polyamide monofilament is more durable than a multifilament and more comfortable than a polyester string."

    String stiffness on TWU vs. RacketPedia

    That was a broad statement of RP in general. Their overall methodology and reporting style for scoring a string in multiple areas (power, comfort, etc). I look at the raw numbers you are referencing, and usually focus on the static numbers for the specific tension I string at, as well as...

    Yellow string recommendation

    Alpha at 292 lb / in (per USRSA) I would not call that soft, and adjusting tension up sounds like a recipe for potential arm issues.

    Round polys with high launch angles??

    Hawk is slightly stiffer than Bussard. If looking at stiffness alone, it would be a different ordering. When looking at a combination of all three, Hawk has the edge due to its superior tension maintainence.

    Round polys with high launch angles??

    With a Dynamic stiffness of 230 g/mm and an Avg static stiffness of 53.2 lbs/inch, Lynx Touch (125) is middle of the road in stiffness in the string universe.
