September 1, 2006, Newsletter Issue #133: String Gauges (String Thicknesses)

Tip of the Week

Tennis racquet strings come in various thicknesses, called "gauges." You have 15, 15L, 16, 16L, and 17. Larger numbers mean thinner strings. "L" means light and can be thought of as half as size (so 15L can be considered 15 1/2). Thick strings have less resilience and feel than thin strings but last longer.
