I play with a juice 100L and I'd like to get new strings. I'm fairly new and I literally know nothing about strings. my racquet suggests NXT strings for power and Spin Cycle for control. I have no power haha and I don't have that much control.. so is there a string I should get/try out that you think would be good?? is there a string good for both control and power?! Thanks! oh and also, I don't know the difference between synthetic and etc.. please let me know thanks again

It's fairly lively as a string thanks to the thin diameter, but it is a first generation polyester string which provides a lot of control. It was the first polyester string I played with and I loved it (and I still do occasionally take a look back to nostalgia lane :D).

If you're looking for power and control try Wilson natural gut. If you don't like the price you can put Wilson Sensation in the crosses with Natural gut mains. That combination seems to be too much power for me though so if you would like to dial it down a notch and put a polyester string in the crosses like Luxilon ALU Rough or Luxilon Adrenaline with the natural gut mains.

It sounds like you are a relatively low level player. Nothing wrong with that ... everyone was at some point.

You have no need for any polyester/co-polyester (poly/co-poly) at this point, it will do more harm than good.

You are probably best just using something like prince synthetic gut.

Good syth gut is a start then if you need more power and touch go towards a multi or gut. If you want low power and high spin try co-poly then poly. I'd stay way from poly unless you hit hard and swing fast.

A beginner should get ordinary synthetic gut.

If you are older and have elbow problems you start to look at multifilament strings.

As you get better you will see some benefits in using premium multis which will give you a bit more bite and control.

As you get to intermed advanced, try, out polyester which will allow you to hit harder, and with more spin.

If you have money to burn, get natural gut.
