Natural Gut

Natural Gut strings are made from the finest quality lamb and beef intestines, and offer unparalleled power, feel, touch, and control. They also offer unequalled shock absorption for players suffering from arm problems. Many top professionals use natural gut, either as a full restring, or as part of a hybrid stringing system.

PLEASE NOTE: Whilst many natural gut strings are now supplied in a ‘weatherproofed’ finish, this is not to say that they can be used in rain or excessively damp conditions as synthetic strings can. The weatherproofing enables play in slightly damp conditions, but no gut string comes with any form of guarantee as regards durability or water resistance.

Hybrid Stringing

Hybrid stringing uses two different types of string, usually natural gut or a high performance multifilament, and a monofilament string, to provide touch and feel with increased durability. Listed below are hybrid combinations used by some of today’s top players. Other combinations are available on request. For full details of the construction of each string, please see the individual string description in either the natural gut or synthetic string section.
