RACKET STRINGING

Huw is a professionally qualified ERSA Pro Tour Stringer and Master Racket Technician with over 20 years stringing experience, and can offer advice on what string would best suit your game. He strings on both the ATP and WTA Tours and has been part of the Wimbledon stringing team since 2016.

 

We carry a vast selection of different strings in stock from different brands including Luxilon, Babolat, Wilson, Prince and Head and am able to source many others for specific requests within a usual 48 hour window. 

 

All rackets are strung on a Babolat Sensor Dual electronic machine (pictured above) or a Wilson Baiardo electronic machine. Babolat and Wilson are the industry leaders in stringing machines and are the choice machines used at many major tournaments. Babolat is the machine of choice used by the stringing team at Wimbledon and provides a consistent response for every re-string. The Wilson Baiardo is the machine of choice at the US Open.

 

Types of strings:

 

Synthetic Gut - A solid core string sharing some gut like qualities. The solid core serves to improve durability whilst the outer layer promotes playability. A very good all round type of string, but not for string breakers!

 

Example price: Babolat Synthetic Gut (Black, Blue, White, Pink): £20

 

Multifilament - Very similar in construction to to natural gut. However without a centre core the durability can suffer. The string more than makes up for its shortened shelf life with lots of feel, comfort and power. Great for sufferers of tennis elbow!

 

Example price: Wilson Sensation: £23

 

Polyester - A solid construction blending polyester, polyether or other polyamides to produce a very durable string. A favourite among hard hitting players and often used in a hybrid with a softer synthetic gut or multifilament. Great for durability and spin!

 

Example price: Luxilon Alu Power: £25

 

Natural Gut - Traditional and the ultimate in playability. This string offers maximum comfort, power and feel. Manufactured from sheep or cow gut, this string comes with the highest of recommendations from professional players who often use this in a hybrid with polyester. Everyone should try natural gut in their racket at least once!

 

Example price: Babolat VS Team: £42
