- EXCELLENT HYBRID FOR POWER, CONTROL AND DURABILITY: With the Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour + VS Hybrid (Poly / Natural Gut Combo) Tennis Racquet String Sets, you get the durability and spin-enhancing features of a poly string (Pro Hurricane Tour), along with the power, control, and comfort of a natural gut.
- STRING COMPOSITION: Natural gut (VS) is made of natural serosa fibers from the cow intestine. It is still the most resilient and power returning fiber known to man. Pro Hurricane Tour is made of polyester and tends to be more stiff and durable.
- PRO HURRICANE TOUR FEATURES: Babolat’s PHT is a poly string designed for string breakers and players after a fair amount of spin. It is a stiffer string than a multifilament and can be rough on the arm on its own.
- VS NATURAL GUT FEATURES: There is nothing out there that plays like natural gut, period (that’s why it’s sooo expensive!). Babolat’s VS is, by far, the best tennis string on the market for comfort, power, and control. Nearly all of the pros use natural gut in their setup, and often as one part of a hybrid. They are not known for durability, however, so save your pennies if you plan on using it regularly.
