Choosing the Best String for Tension

If playability is what you’re looking for, you can go with a thinner string. These strings are less durable, but they dig into the ball deeper, allowing for a higher level of spin. If you like to play “smart” tennis and really focus on ball placement, and outmaneuvering your opponent, a thinner gauge string is probably right for you.

Here are some materials better suited for these kinds of players;

  • Natural Gut
  • Multifilaments
  • Synthetic Gut
  • Soft Polyester

Tension Guidelines

Most people are going to want mid-level tension on their strings, 1 or 2 lbs typically. The more tension you have in your strings, the more control you will have. The less tension you have, the more power you will have. If you use poly strings, you’ll want to reduce your normal level of tension by about 10% because this material has no give in it, and can cause injuries at normal tension levels.

If you’re really high level, you can combine different strings to create a hybrid racquet. The top Tennis players in the world usually use a combination of playability and power intensive materials for their strings.
