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

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

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 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

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

$29

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
