Tennis Industry Association released the top 5 best selling tennis racquet strings for the first quarter of 2017. Having been a racquet stringer myself many years ago, the results are surprising. What surprised me the most, is how much more expensive strings have gotten over the years, and how popular polyester strings have become.
|1). Babolat RPM Blast||$17.95|
|2). Wilson NXT||$19.95|
|3). Wilson Sensation||$9.95|
|4). Prince Synthetic Gut w/Duraflex||$4.75|
|5). Luxilon ALU Power||$17.95|
The list includes:
2 polyester strings, 2 multifilament strings and 1 synthetic gut string. It is also note worthy to mention that Wilson makes the list twice.
Here at Global Tennis Network, players are able to select their racquet brand and the string they play with. So we wanted to know, what are the most popular strings on GTN.
|1). Luxilon ALU Power|
|2). Pro Hurricane Tour|
|3). Luxilon ALU Rough|
|4). Tecnifibre Black Code|
|5). Synthetic Gut with Duraflex|
As you can see, it is a pretty similar list, but with a few surprises.
