The gauge affects the behavior of strings:
• a thinner gauge for more power and feel,
• a thicker gauge for increased durability.
Each string has its own recommended tension, which corresponds to a standard tension. Reducing the tension setting will make the strings give more on impact with the ball, for more power and comfort. Increasing the tension will make the string bed stiffer, for greater control.
Babolat has been making natural gut tennis strings since 1875, according to the same unique, secret process as always. The ultimate string, it outperforms all other options. Thanks to its natural elasticity, it provides exceptional power, comfort and tension hold.
Wrapped strings are made with a central monofilament core, encased in a swirl of surrounding filaments. The string is then wrapped and sheathed in one or several coats of silicon. The central core makes the string tough and the swirl of surrounding filaments makes it flexible. Their main advantages: versatility.
A single filament that can also be wrapped, monofilament string is usually made with PET. Functional additives considerably improve the string’s performance. It is then referred to as a Co-Polyester string. Monofilament strings are the result of complex processes and chemistry, which are adjusted to produce different types of results. Thanks to their unique structure, monofilament strings are the stiffest of all. The main advantages are durability, control and topspin. The perfect choice for competitive players who want a responsive string that won’t break.
This synthetic string provides the next best thing to natural gut in terms of performance. Multifilament string is made with several hundred synthetic micro-fibers assembled into a matrix to form the core. The twisted core gives the string more elasticity and flexibility. The central core is then protected by one or several outer wraps. The main characteristics: comfort, power and good tension hold.
