5 Best Wilson Tennis Strings

Wilson Sensation Tennis String

Wilson Sensation Comfort

Wilson Sensation is a multifilament Tennis String that comes in a few different variations including Comfort, Control, and Plus, each with different tennis string gauges ranging from 15 (for more durability) to 18 (for more feel).

If you have ever bought a prestrung Wilson Tennis Racket then chances are that it was strung using the Wilson Sensation Tennis String as it is the cheapest Wilson String on the market.

Wilson’s Sensation tennis string is perfect for beginners or players who are looking for an arm friendly string.

The only downside to the Tennis String is its durability so if you are a heavy hitter then you may find that the strings will need to be changed frequently.

However, if you are a beginner, then this will be less of an issue for you.


  • Good quality string at a low price
  • Arm Friendly String
  • Gives surprisingly good feel on your shots for a cheap string


  • Poor Durability (Not recommended for advanced players who hit heavy top spin shots)

Wilson NXT Tennis String

Wilson NXT

The Wilson NXT is a multifilament tennis string that has been one of Wilson’s top selling tennis strings over the last 10 years.

The Wilson NXT plays very similar to the Wilson Sensation and is aimed at beginner to intermediate tennis players who have compact to medium strokes.

The Wilson NXT focuses on giving players good comfort and power which makes it ideal for those players who have not yet developed a full swing on their shots.


  • Provides good comfort and power on your shots
  • Good forgiveness on off center shots.


  • Not a very spin friendly string
  • Playability decreases over time so you will need to regularly restring
  • The extra power you get comes at the cost of control

Wilson Revolve Spin Tennis String

Wilson Revolve Spin

As you can probably guess from its name, the Wilson Revolve Spin Tennis String is designed to be a super spin friendly string and is aimed at more advanced tennis players who hit a heavy ball with a full swing.


  • Provides good spin on your shots
  • Provides good comfort on your shots
  • Good at retaining string tension so the playability of the racket lasts for longer.


  • Strings are more focused on control rather than power so won’t suit all players

Wilson Champion’s Choice

Wilson Champion's Choice

Wilson’s Champion’s Choice is the string setup used by the great Roger Federer and is a combination of Wilson’s Natural Gut and Luxilon’s ALU Power Rough.

Champion’s Choice is very popular with recreational players that want to emulate Roger Federer.

The combination of Wilson’s Natural Gut in the mains and Luxilon’s ALU Power Rough in the crosses gives you a good balance of power, spin, and feel.

However, it is one of the more pricey string options you can use for your tennis racket with Wilson Champion’s Choice being around four times more expensive than Wilson Sensation Tennis Strings for example.


  • Provides a good combination of power and feel on your shots
  • Very Spin Friendly
  • The combination of the natural gut and the ALU Power Rough gives you a very unique feel on your shots


  • A lot more expensive than other string options out there
  • Strings aren’t very durable so you will need to restring your racket often

Wilson Natural Gut

Wilson Natural Gut

Natural Gut tennis strings are made from cow intestines in comparison with other strings that are made from polyester or nylon.

When it comes to playability and feel nothing comes close to a natural gut tennis string with top players like Roger Federer using them in their hybrid setups.

However, the big downside to using natural gut is the cost.


  • Great playability and feel on your shots
  • Natural gut is very soft on your arm
  • Natural Gut Strings hold tension very well


  • Natural Gut Strings tend to break more frequently than synthetic gut strings so that only adds to the cost of using Natural Gut.

Our Tennis String Recommendations

Beginners – If you are a tennis beginner then it makes little sense to invest in an expensive string setup and instead I would recommend that you go for a cheap option like the Wilson Sensation String.

Intermediate – If you are an intermediate player looking for some extra power then I would recommend the Wilson NXT Power.

If you are looking for more control then I recommend the Wilson NXT Control string.

Advanced – My recommendation for more advanced tennis players would be to either go for Wilson Natural Gut or Wilson Champion’s Choice.

If you are on a budget then the Wilson Revolve Spin is a good alternative.

Bonus Tip: If you are looking for an arm friendly string then I would recommend the Wilson Sensation or Wilson NXT.
