You're in the same position as me, then. What racket do you use? Any particular brand of synthetic gut?

Typically I use Gamma, but Prince was the only one in stock when I ordered this time (because I went with Amazon) so I'll be using that for the first time

i use the yonex 001 (yellow one dementieva used) and i have a friend who is a gold level stringer so leave which brand to him (i know he orders from W & D strings). he has made me try every type of string and i haven't liked any as much as syn. polly's i break like it is made of glass lol


for me because i play so often, i find the syn lasts the longest whilst i feel comfortable with it. i was having my rackets restrung every 2 weeks.

luckily because i have a friend who strings, i only pay for the string sets and because he gets them at cost price it is dirt cheap.

Really then we are in the exact same position . Synthetic gut isn't the most durable, but for feel and durability I think it has the best combination. Plus, I string my own so I can also do it at dirt cheap (plus the string itself is already cheaper than most)

That's about what I pay, although the 1.35 is a little thicker than I use (I use 16G, 1.30 mm)

Very nice One of my favorite racquets of all time is the Yonex Mp-5i, but they don't make it anymore and it's tough to find in the US. I have one left that I haven't managed to break but a small crack is forming on the top and the grommet has completely worn away

maybe try different types of syn gut out then, different thicknesses and even tension.. i found all the polly's or mix just last so short a time it was not worth it.

Great picture

My Yonex has a crack in the top of the frame (I won't upload a picture ) because I smashed it during a tournament my sophomore year in high school. I was winning 5-2 and loving the racquet, that I had just restrung the day before for this specific one-day tournament, and the strings broke. They had a poly (which I will never use again) and a synthetic mix on them, only lasted 7 games, which caused me to smash it
