Babolat RPM Blast, Luxilon ALU Power, Solinco Tour Bite… these polyester tennis strings are popular on the pro tour because of their low-powered response that allows players to swing extremely fast and generate tons of spin. Also, their monofilament construction also offers excellent durability for frequent string breakers.
Let it be known that if you don’t have long, fast, more modern “low to high” strokes, then polyester strings may not be ideal for you. They are very low-powered and stiff which can cause arm problems in players that can’t generate a lot of their own power. A good rule of thumb to remember is that if you are able to break softer strings like synthetic gut or multifilament in 20 hours of less, then you’ll most like benefit from the unique properties that polyester strings provide.
With so many polyester tennis string options out there, you don’t have to break the bank to get great performance. Here is a list of some of our TW Staff’s favorite polyester strings that are available under $10 a set:
