Babolat Addixion 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 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.

$25

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

$25

Ashaway Super Nick XL 17 for squash only. A coreless multifilament with a braided outer jacket offers a soft feel and good spin.

$26

Solinco Confidential officially was released in 2020 after a couple years of "confidential" testing. Stiffer than Hyper G but not as stiff as Tour Bite, it's a good choice for advanced players looking for a control oriented poly. For now, in 17 gauge only.

$26

Solinco Hyper G is one of the more recent offerings from Solinco and is considerably softer than Tour Bite which preceded it by a couple years. In 16 (1.30mm), 16L (1.25mm), 17 (1.20mm) and 18 (1.15mm), the string is fluorescent green and pentagonally shaped. Solinco also offers an even softer version of this called (what else?) Hyper-G Soft which I am carrying in 17 ga only.

$26

Solinco Tour Bite is a pentagonally shaped polyester string made in Taiwan. It is designed for big spin. Available in 1.05, 1.10, 1.15, 1.20, 1.25 and 1.30mm.

$26

Tecnifibre RPX . Tecnifibre introduced this at roughly the same time as Triax and the 2 strings are very similar in terms of their compostion (50% polyester, 50% polyamide). RPX is several dollars cheaper than Triax, no doubt due to a difference in processing time. This type of string is intended to provide players with the comfort of a nylon based string and the control and spin of a poly based string.

$26

Head Hawk 17. Another polyester monofilament for you hard hitting topspinners out there. Pretty low powered for a poly so if you can generate your own pace this is one you might want to try. In 17 ga only.

$27

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

Premier Touch is an Austrian made polyolefin ribbon string. I am carrying it as a replacement for the now discontinued Head FXP Tour and I am recommending it to players who are concerned primarily with comfort. Very easy on the arm.

$30

Tecnifibre Dynamix VP 17 is a coreless multifilament designed for maximum power. For squash only. Diameter: 1.20mm

$30

Tecnifibre HDMX is a control oriented coreless multifilament for someone who likes the arm friendliness of that type of construction but usually finds them too lively. They've reduced the liveliness by making 33% of the fibers in the string polyester.

$31

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

Triax is Tecnifibre's latest effort to supply the comfort and feel of a premium multifilament with the control of a polyester in one string. If you are currently using a polyester hybrid Tecnifibre is aiming to supply you with this as an alternative. It's a 50/50 mix of polyamide and polyester fibers and available in 16 gauge (1.33mm)

$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, Warwrinka, Fognini and others on the tour. Available in 15L,16, 17 and 18 ga.

$32

Tecnifibre Razor Code is the stiffest of the co-polys in the Tecnifibre line. Available in 17 gauge for the spin oriented advanced player.

$32

Tecnifibre TGV is the softest multifilament string in the Tecnifibre line and an excellent choice for someone with wrist or elbow issues.

$33

Tecnifibre X-One Biphase: I am carrying this in 15L, 16, 17 and 18 ga. If you are looking for performance and comfort this is one of the best playing arm-friendly strings out there.

$33

Head Reflex MLT 16 is a very arm friendly string with plenty of feel and power. One of the nicest multifilaments out there.

$34

Babolat Touch Tonic is Babolat's second line of natural gut string and is not gauge specific like their top line. Packages indicate only that the string is either over 1.35mm or under. Thicker is more durable, thinner more playable. An especially good choice if you are looking to hybridize with a polyester.

$52

VS Touch 16 is Babolat's best natural gut and arguably the finest gut available on the planet. Natural gut has the longest playing life of any of the racquet strings so if you are not a string breaker this might actually prove to be a cost effective choice in spite of the price. Available in natural or black.

$60
