Thumbs down What strings should I use?


I don't know anything at all about strings.

I use Babolat AeroProDrives.

I use a lot of top spin. But my strings are usually on the tighter side (I don't like them loose).

My problem is the strings keep either breaking or becoming too loose so that I have to adjust the strings after every few points, which is very annoying.

I'm not sure if this is because of the strings, the way I hit, the tension.

I'm just sick of paying to get my racquets restrung after every 3 or 4 matches.

You need to ask for high durability strings when you get it strung. They cost more but are better quality.

Save $250 and buy yourself a stringer. Get yourself 2 sets of syn gut, 2 sets of multis, and 2 sets of poly. Try all 6 sets out and you should learn what works best for you.

Re: What strings should I use?

If the strings are moving between points, you are probably using either syn gut or multi-filament strings. Try using a poly string like RPM Blast or Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power. A cheaper poly option that I used to use is Volkl Cyclone. With poly, the strings will not move between points and will not break easily. But be careful. If you don't have good stroke mechanics, the combo of Babolat APD (very stiff stick) and poly is a recipe for tennis elbow. I had it.

Good luck.

Yeah, experiment with different strings but beware tennis elbow poly and stiff setups.

I switched to an 18x20 because I was tired of strings moving and breaking on my 16x20.

Re: What strings should I use?

Go for hybrids that either include Kevlar or Polyester if you're concerned about durability, they last a long, long time. If you're looking for feel, natural gut is the best. And always experiment with string tension until you find one that suits your play style.
