need some help on a tennis racquet

so i know i'm switching from the prince more balance to the wilson ntour 95(davenport racquet) because my coach says that i need a racquet with more control. is that true that this racquet will have alot of control?? will it lack power??

also i was wondering what the best types of string are to get. like whats the difference between synthetic and gut, and which strings offer more control and are more durable so i'm not replacing strings all the time.

thanks guys

I doubt the ntour 95 lacks power if Lindsay is using it
Ive read the ntour has a fairly powerful response along with a good level of control..
A lot of pros use natural gut strings which offer good control and power though they are less durable than the synthetic strings and wouldnt last as long
..especially if you're mishitting as many balls as me
If youre after high levels of control and extra spin you could use a textured string like the Prince Topspin..
