Best Valued Multifilament Tennis String

June 17, 2014

Multifilament strings are great for the players that are seeking a great combination of feel, comfort, power and playability. The biggest advantage of them is higher elasticity and superior playability in comparison to polyester strings which are very popular amongst players today. The disadvantage is string durability as they tend to break quicker. This article is not designed to dive into what multifilament strings are or how they are constructed but instead what are the best-valued multilament stirngs on the market today. We here at The Tennis Depot pride ourselves in offering the highest quality products in the marketplace that comes with the best value and bang for the buck to the consumer.

The ultimate #1 valued multifiament string is the Pro Supex Maxim Touch which many players compare to Wilson Sensation, Wilson NXT, Tecnifibre NRG, Babolat Xcel Premium among many others. We have even gotten some that compared it to the Babolat VS Natural Gut or Pacific and Klip natural gut strings.

Pro Supex Maxim Touch has a multifilament core and is reinforced by outside wrapped fibres. It has a polyurethane coating and increases your sweetspot by 30%. This string is arm friendly and can decrease tennis-elbow problems. Maxim Touch works great as a hybrid as well as a full job. We recommend the 16 gauge if you are seeking durability and playability at the same time. When taking price into equation, Pro Supex Maxim Touch is hands down the absolute best multi string on the market today for its price.

Two other multi’s that offer incredible value are both the Genesis Thunder Blast and Genesis XplosionGenesis Thunder Blast offers amazing repulsion power and controlled spin. Players who come in to the net a lot will appreciate the soft capabilities of this string with its impeccable touch and comfort. Thunder Blast has also some of the best tension retention from any multifilament string thanks to a very unique construction process. The center core utilizes a very elastic monofilament compressed and heated to stretch easily. The outer core is twisted by soft elastic multifilaments. A coating resembling a rough surface is added for increased spin.

Genesis Xplosion is a multifilament string compromised of over 2000 filaments that are bonded and twisted together. Genesis Xplosion offers gut like performance without the premium price of most natural gut strings. Xplosion provides superior resiliency and maximum power. Utilizing special heating and cooling treatments, Genesis has achieved a very arm friendly string that offers great feel and touch. A polyurethane elastometer resin coating provides easier stringing and increased durability.

These 3 strings are without a doubt the best bang for the buck amongst multifilament strings out on the market. Be sure to check them out and let us know your feedback once tested!
