Top 10 Power & Comfort Tennis Strings
Here is our list of some of the best tennis strings for power and comfort. Different strings are designed for different players, so they will have more or less spin, power, control or durability compared to other strings, and these characteristics may improve or decrease depending on string tension. However, with so many different types of strings now available, we believe that these strings are the best for players that want as much power and comfort as possible.
With so many strings available, finding the perfect one for your game is a process that can take years. This list offers some great options to try out and narrow down the choice until you find the string you are most comfortable and confident playing with.
Remember, the brand of string doesn’t have to match the manufacturer of your racket. In fact, over two thirds of ATP and WTA players use Luxilon tennis strings!

Babolat VS Touch BT7 Natural Gut Tennis String Set - Natural
Perhaps the string that has defined Babolat, and tennis itself, more than any other product, Babolat VS Touch has a long heritage and legendary performance.

Babolat Synthetic Gut Spiraltek Set - Black
While not as powerful and comfortable as premium multifilaments and natural guts, synthetic gut strings are much more suitable for intermediate players as they offer more all-round performance at a cheaper price. Babolat Spiraltek is our favourite synthetic gut as it offers a nice blend of comfort and power, but with additional control and durability that premium multifilaments often lack. Perfect for players looking for an all-round string that offers excellent power and comfort with extra spin potential.
Babolat XCel Tennis String Set - Natural
Wondering which multifilament doesn’t compromise on control? Look no further. Thanks to increased durability and a tougher construction, Babolat Xcel provides players with the power and comfort that players have always loved, but with increased control that you don’t usually get from multifilaments, in addition to a crisp feel.
Prince Premier LT Tennis String Set - Natural
One of the more underrated multifilaments on the market, Prince Premier LT offers an excellent balance of power, comfort, control and spin. Prince’s unique string construction ensures that players that looking for the rare combination of comfort and spin can find a nice balance between the two, rather than compromising on both. And as a multifilament, Premier LT offers a smooth, consistent response and works particularly well in a hybrid setup with a poly.
Tecnifibre NRG Natural Sets 1.24mm / 1.32mm
While all multifilaments offer power and comfort, not many offer as much as Tecnifibre NRG. Perfect for players with short to medium swing styles that use lightweight power rackets, NRG offers a soft feel and plenty of depth for your shots, allowing you to reach the edges of the court easier than ever before.
Wilson NXT 16 Tennis String Set - Natural
As players develop different aspects of their game, they often feel that they need to move from multifilament strings to hybrids or polyesters in search of more control and spin. However, some strings are simply so good that they offer all-round performance to players of all abilities. Wilson NXT is probably the closest multifilament string to a true all-rounder, offering astonishing power and comfort with excellent spin, control and touch, making it an excellent choice for all types of players.
Head Rip Control Tennis String Set
Not every multifilament is designed to offer unrelenting power. Players also need to take into account that, while your shots need to powerful, they also need to be accurate. Head RIP Control offers a unique blend of control and comfort, making it the perfect choice for advanced players looking for a softer feel. If you’re an ex-poly player that wants as much control as possible without compromising on comfort, you should take a serious look at this string.
Wilson Sensation Tennis String Set - Natural
One of the oldest and most iconic strings in tennis history, Wilson Sensation set the standard for power and comfort strings for decades, thanks to its familiar combination of exceptional power and soft, arm-friendly feel. While other multifilaments may have extra technology, choosing Wilson Sensation is almost never a bad choice.
