Introductory explanation to the four main tennis string categories.
Natural Gut: Superior power, feel, and comfort. Maintains tension longer but not durable and most expensive due to manufacturing cost.
Multifilament: Power, comfort and durability. Engineered to mimic the construction of natural gut with added durability but less spin and control.
Synthetic Gut: Lower-end string for all-round performance at great value. Ideal for casual and recreational players.
Polyester: Low-powered and durable with increased snapback for enhanced topspin. Most popular string for high-level players.
