Meaby you have some suggestions for what string i can use for my son.
He plays with the wilson blx blade 98 , the string he is now using is a syn gut string from signum ( pro fiber tech ) Do you know what will be a better choice, and with wich tension. It must be a string with gut comfort.
Thank you for your input.

Head Rip Control
Prince premire Attack
discho Multifibre, Wilson nxt, or babolat excel ( these three are similar)

Of the above he should find one he likes I would start on the lower end between 50-55lbs.

I'm assuming you have a budget since you include that it must have gut comfort:

Lower end: Forten Sweet syn gut (actually doesn't play that bad for a cheap string, very comfortable), have also heard good things about Gosen OG Sheep micro, Tecnifibre e-matrix

Mid range: Babolat excel, Tecnifibre multifeel, head intellistring

For such stiff racquet, natural gut / synthetic gut hybrid would be safest if not most economical choice for a junior. I would try longer lasting natural gut (such as Pacific Tough Gut) for the mains and smoother syn gut (such as Gosen OG Sheep Micro) for the crosses, strung at 50 lbs. Should last for a month or two if junior was OK with full synthetic gut setup. Great playability and comfort for like $25+labor per month. And then you can add stringsavers to make it last even longer.
