- THE POWER OF GUT: There is nothing out there that plays like natural gut, period (that’s why it’s sooo expensive!). Luxilon’s Natural Gut Power in 16 and 17 Gauge 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.
- STRING COMPOSITON: Natural Serosa Fibers. Man has used natural gut for bows and musical instruments for more than 3000 years. It just so happens that these natural serosa fibers (a fibrous protein called “collagen”) are more resilient and power returning than any synthetic fiber man knows how to make – yet.
- EXCELLENT IN A HYBRID SETUP: Many advanced players and pros these days are using (2) half-sets of different strings, mixing and matching different types of strings in order to create a hybrid setup that addresses specific issues. A half-set of a natural gut such as Luxilon Natural Gut Power in your racket would help any arm issues you may be experiencing, provide a great boost to power, control, and overall comfort; but would reduce the life of the string bed overall as the trade-off.
