Leoina 66. Who says time doesn't stand still? This one has been around forever and still works. This is a very basic 15 ga nylon. Inexpensive, durable, with okay performance. Slightly textured.

$16

Head Synthetic Gut PPS 16. Very similar to Prince Synthetic Gut in design, a basic center core construction with a wear resistant layer for added durability. Crisp playability. In White only.

$17

Toa Gold. Most folks are unfamilar with the name, but TOA is one of the largest manufacturers of synthetic strings in the world, if not THE largest, and they make strings for most of the name brands that you do know. Toa Gold is a really nice inexpensive synthetic gut and is available in both 15L and 16 gauges.

$17

Ashaway Superkill II is a 16 ga all purpose racquetball string.

$18

Still the best selling string in the world. Prince Synthetic Gut in my opinion is the stiffest of the synthetic guts and not vastly different from Wilson's, Gamma's or Head's or anybody else's synthetic gut for that matter. Good playability, good durability, good price and in an array of colors. The vanilla of tennis strings.

$18

Forten Sweet Aramid used to be called Sweet Kevlar. This is a hybrid set for chronic string breakers. Nice and dead. Available in both 16L and 15L. Basically the same as Prince's Pro Blend, just a lot less expensive. Not a good choice for anyone with a sore elbow.

$20

Forten Thin Blend. This is a very thin version of a Kevlar hybrid. The main strings are 18 ga Kevlar composite and the crosses are 17 ga synthetic gut. For big hitters who are hooked on that dead Kevlar feel but are willing to sacrifice some durability for some added playability.

$20

Prince Lightning XX 16. Hey! This stuff is pretty! It has shiny spirals in it! Prince calls them Powerfoils and the even better news is they actually work! This string has some real pop! In clear, hot pink, blue or red.

$20

Head RIP Control. An unusually durable multifilament with excellent control. Somewhat dead. I usually like to have string breakers try this one first before we start into the polyesters. Available in 16 gauge.

$22

MSV Focus Hex is a relatively recent arrival from Germany. As the name implies, the string is hex shaped for added spin potential. Excellent tension maintenance for a polyester string and not bad in the comfort dept either. Available in 1.10 and 1.18mm

$22

MSV Heptatwist is similar in feel to Focus Hex but is seven sided and twisted to impart even more spin. Very similar to Solinco's Barb Wire. In black in both 1.20mm and 1.25mm.

$22

Babolat Pro Hurricane 17. One of the older, 2nd generation co-polyester strings. I still have a couple customers who like this in a hybrid with synthetic gut.

$23

Head FXP. A mainstay in Head's Control String line. It's got it's roots in the synthetic gut world but there's polyester in there too, just enough so you'd know it. In 16 or 17 gauge.

$23

Weiss Cannon Silverstring . Similar in feel to Luxilon's Fluoro, this co-poly string provides easy access to spin and a cushioned response at an unbeatable price. In 1.20mm and 1.25mm.

$23

Head FXP Tour 16 is a soft string built around a core of 4 large polyamide filaments. The playability is soft and best complements racquets that have a tendency to string up really tight, like the Head Extreme MP.

$24

Signum Pro Poly Plasma 1.18 and 1.23 Signum Pro has garnered quite a following in Europe but is only recently making a splash here in the States. Poly Plasma is a bright orange co-poly that has better than average tension maintenance for a poly based string and plays a bit softer than Luxilon.

$24

Tecnifibre Pro Redcode 17. A comfort oriented co-poly with a lively response and a wallet friendly price.

$24

Babolat Addiction 16. Not quite as soft as the more expensive Babolat Xcel but still pretty easy on the arm and with a crisper playability.

$25

Head Intellistring is a hybrid set in Head's line of "Power" strings, so it's intended to be on the lively side and was original equipment in several of the Intelligence series racquets.

$25

Head Megablast 16 is original equipment on Head racquetball racquets. It's a multifilament string with above average durability.

$25

Tecnifibre Multifeel. A combination of both a sizable center core and hundreds of microfibers give this inexpensive multifilament better than average tension maintenance and a comfortable playability. Available in both 16 and 17 ga.

$25

Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour. I am carrying both 16 and 17 ga. I was stringing at a Challenger Event and this string was being used by so many players I decided to start carrying it. It's softer than the original Pro Hurricane, but it's definitely still a poly.

$26

Solinco Hyper G is the latest offering from Solinco and intended for big topspin. In 16 (1.30mm), 16L (1.25mm) and 17 (1.20mm), the string is fluorescent green and pentagonally shaped..

$26

Solinco Tour Bite is a pentagonally shaped polyester string made in Taiwan. It is designed for big spin. Available in 1.15, 1.20, 1.25 and 1.30mm.

$26

Prince Premier Power 16 is a coreless multifilament string with plenty of power and excellent comfort.

$29

Tecnifibre Black Code 1.24 is a relatively soft polyester based string with a pentagonal shape for added spin.

$29

Babolat Xcel replaces what was previously called Xcel Premium. In this updated version Babolat uses a new bonding agent that is intended to maintain the soft feel of the original while improving durability. One of the softest strings out there, so not a bad choice for sore arms. I am carrying this string in both 16 and 17 gauges.

$30

E-Force Oxygen 17. For racquetball only. Maximum power, elasticity, and resilience. Enhanced soft feel, Minimal vibration.

$30

Tecnifibre NRG. French made multifilament. Available in both 16 and 17 gauge. One of the best synthetics out there. If you want performance, definitely worth a try.

$31

Babolat RPM Blast. Co-polyester from Babolat that is softer than their earlier offerings and octagonally shaped for more spin. Personally, I found this to be on the stiff side, but this is the string of choice for Nadal, Tsonga and others on the tour. Available in 16, 17 and 18 ga.

$32

Tecnifibre X-One Biphase: I am carrying this in 16, 17 and 18 ga. Not quite as powerful as NRG but still comfort oriented. Holds tension pretty well for a coreless multifilament.

$33

Babolat Tonic Plus is Babolat's second line of natural gut string and is not gauge specific like their top line. An especially good choice if you are looking to hybridize with a polyester.

$45

VS Touch 16 is Babolat's best natural gut and arguably the finest gut available on the planet. With the U.S. dollar getting clobbered by the Euro the price of this French made string has been moving up recently and I regrettably have had to follow suit.

$56
