What is the best type of string to use for my racket?


Stringing patterns do not seem to matter but mild to moderate tension on the strings (52 to 55 pounds) is recommended to reduce the symptoms of tennis elbow. Gut is more resilient and slightly better than nylon, but the cost difference does not really justify the small advantage. Therefore, use 16-gauge nylon.
