String Tips

"Nine Basic Facts about Strings"
Here are nine basic facts about strings from USRSA technical advisor Steve Davis. This information provided by the United States Racquet Stringers Association. USRSA Copyright c 1997.

  1. Lower string tensions generate more power (providing string movement does not occur).
  2. Higher string tensions generate more ball control (for experienced players).
  3. A longer string length (or string plane area) produces more power.
  4. Decreased string density (fewer strings) generates more power.
  5. Thinner string generates more power (Wilson's research for their Sweetspot string disputes this theory).
  6. More elastic strings generate more power (generally, what will produce more power will also absorb more shock load at impact).
  7. Softer strings, or strings with a softer coating, tend to vibrate less.
  8. Thinner strings tend to produce more spin.
  9. Decreased string density (fewer strings) generates more spin.
