String Options
    The following are a few of the types of string Impugner's Racket Shop has available. We offer stringing on all the rackets purchased from us, at rates ranging from $19 to $55 (the last being for expensive and difficult to work natural gut string). For an exact quote, please ask at the same time you make your racket order.

    I will shortly be evaluating all of these strings in terms of power (ability to transfer energy from a swing), spin (power transfer when the stroke is perpendicular to the motion), vibration (notably, the lack of vibration on a clean hit), durability (how long the string lasts before breaking), tension hold (how well the string retains the string tension it is strung at), depth control (how reliably the string delivers duplicable distance with similar hits), and resiliency (how well the string recovers from powerful hits). I currently have recommendations in each of these categories, but no overall ranking system.

    My Top Picks
    Power:
    Spin: Head Intellistring
    Vibration:
    Durability: Pro Kennex Kevlar
    Tension Hold: Wilson Extreme Control
    Depth Control: Wilson Extreme Control
    Resiliency:


        Some of the other strings types I have available are listed below.
        Installed prices range from $19 to $34.
