Shop the Best Selection of Tennis String
Why is Tennis String so important?
In order for a tennis racquet to be complete, it must contain a tennis string, as this is the part of the tennis racquet that actually makes contact with the ball. A woven network within the head of the racquet is created by the tennis string, which is made from a variety of materials. Properties measured from the strings include rebound efficiency, tension retention, dynamic stiffness, and thickness (gauge). Because a string is so important to the success of your game, Do It Tennis is your tennis string superstore, and provides multiple string options for you to choose from.
The Tennis String basics
The four types of tennis strings
Here is an overview of the four basic string types in terms of composition:
Natural Gut: The undisputed champion of tennis strings. Gives both power and feel. Good choice for injury prevention and vibration dampening. Retains performance as it wears though is vulnerable to the ill effects of moisture.
Synthetic String with Solid Core: Offers a wide range of playability, power, or control. Its low cost is an attractive feature to players who go through a lot of string.
Synthetic String with Multifilament Construction: Offers the most performance for the money. Aims to replicate natural gut at a much lower cost. Natural vibration dampening is a characteristic as it minimizes arm and wrist fatigue. Use these with textured surfaces for increased spin capability.
Polyester and Polyester Hybrid String: Excellent durability and power. Can be hard on the arm, however. Frequently used as the mains in a hybrid set-up.
Tennis String Gauge
Generally, the thicker the string, the more durable the string is. String gauge works this way:
Lower Gauge = Thicker String
Higher Gauge = Thinner String
String Tension Basics
Staying within the manufacturer’s tension range, the general rule of thumb for string tension is as follows:
Higher tension = better control, less power, yields shorter shots
Lower tension = less control, more power, yields longer shots
Adjust string tension according to desired effect.
What Tennis String Should I Get?
Many customers we have spoken to over the years have very little experience choosing tennis string. That is why Do It Tennis has come up with some simple options. If you would like a good, basic synthetic gut string, please choose our FREE string. If you would like a better playing synthetic gut, please choose our $5 string option. If you would like a really good playing multifilament string that plays well, holds tension well and is easy on your arm, choose the $10 option. If you want an excellent multifilament that is just one notch below Natural Gut in playability, power and ease on your arm, choose the $15 option.
