Thomas Hudson
Sterling 17

Needs to be strung at highest recommended tension. Strings move a lot after serving and hitting heavy top spin.

Sterling strings 17 gauge

I like the multi filament Sterling strings; plays very similar to Wilson NXT
Control, but cheaper. This string gives me good control on all aspects of the game. Very arm friendly.

Klipper products are great and very reasonably priced

Excellent prices for excellent products! Sterling String, Klipper tape and grips - the best!!!

Catalin Bobe
Very good string for the money

Just to qualify the review: I used the Stirling 17g to string my Wilson Blade 18x20 racket. I'm 60+ and had tennis elbow about 13-15 years ago. I wouldn't use anything else other than multifilament.
Stirling is a very good multifilament, I'd say a tad below the Tecnifibre X-One (my favourite one so far). But much better than many other multifilaments I used in the past, (especially considering the price!).
I live in Canada and Sterling is not readily available on this market. But I would continue using it if I could.

soft on arm, good feel

I combine this with Head Rip Control, the Sterling for mains
