Buying Guide

Tennis String Buying Guide

As the point of contact between racket and ball, strings are a key component of a racket. We’ll lead you through the key considerations in this step by step guide.

1. What String Type Should I choose?

Synthetic Gut (Beginner/Intermediate Level String) The all rounder string, jack of all trades but master of none. Suited for players at a more basic standard and great value for money.

Multifilament (Beginner/Intermediate Level String) A cheaper alternative to natural gut, mimicking its soft, comfortable feel. A great choice for those who struggle with arm injuries or just prefer a softer feel.

Polyester (Advanced Level String) For advanced players looking for spin & control. Can be harsh on the arm so not recommended for beginners.

Natural Gut (Advanced Level String) Considered the ultimate for power, feel and comfort but its price is not for the faint hearted. Also less durable than its synthetic counterparts.

2. What String Gauge Should I Choose?

Thinner tennis strings will be less durable, however offer greater responsiveness, feel and spin potential.

Thicker tennis strings will offer slightly less performance but you will be rewarded with greater durability.

Much of this decision will be influenced by your budget and how often you wish to be visiting your local stringer!

3. What String Tension Should I Choose?

Once you have chosen your string type and gauge the last consideration is tension.

There is no ‘perfect’ tension and your choice will be defined by what benefits you wish to gain and which drawbacks you are willing to accept.

Lower tensions (around 50lbs) will give greater power, however this comes at the sacrifice of control. Strings also last longer at lower tensions so are a more budget friendly option.

Higher tensions (above 58lbs) will give greater control. If you find you are regularly firing balls long, an increased tension could be used to reign in some of that power. However, be aware that high tensions are more likely to cause arm injuries (especially with stiff polyester strings) and also decrease string durability.
