Description

Combining all around playability with additional performance, Head Synthetic Gut PPS provides a bit of everything all in one package. Named for the PowerStrip Technology, which is a Polyphenelyne Sulfide Strip, this string provides added resilience and elasticity for extra power. Synthetic Gut PPS features a special Pearl Polyamide coating to reduce notching and burning for added durability compared to most synthetic guts. The string is constructed using a monofilament core with a layer of outerwraps, combining good tension maintenance with a slightly softer feel for a better, longer lasting string. A good choice for players wanting a bit more power and durability from a synthetic gut, and also players seeking an all around string for hybrid application.

Construction: Monofilament polyamide + outerwrap + PowerStrip
Color: Gold, Orange, White, Yellow, Blue
Gauge: 16 (1.34mm), 17 (1.24mm), 18 (1.14mm)

What a bargain for a great playing string. As a stringer, its easy to work with and looks great when finished. My customer loves the feel and it is softer than regular synthetic gut so it gives his elbow some relief.

Overall the product lived up to what was expected of it. The strings had a good amount of playability the first couple of times out on the court. However, the synthetic gut pps significantly lacked the bite in order to hit the bite necessary that was needed from time to time.

Synthetic Gut PPS strings performance review
4/5
I got blue colored Synthetic Gut PPS Strings for my know Head Youtek extreme pro racquet and when I started playing I noticed that the color would start to fade away. I use my racquet constantly, about 4 times I play for about 3 hrs at a time and now it has been almost a month and the blue has faded away to where there is a clear spot/white colored in the center of my racquet. Generally where my sweat spot is located at. The only way that I would comment on them is that the colored faded quickly. But besides the fact of them fading in color I was very pleased with the performance they delivered when I would play. Thank you for letting me review this product for you. Hope I have helped for later customers!

As a part-time racquet stringer, I look for ease of installation and durability in the string I use for my customers.

This string has become one of my favorites, more for its ease of installation, but also for its durability.

The Best Synthetic Gut on the Market!
5/5
Like many of you, Ive tried the Luxlillon, the Babolats RPM, the Feel, Touch, Prince Beasts, Multis, etc...and for me, I use the old school frames the DUnlop Max 200Gs, 12 of them, and have strung them all with every sting combo, hybrid, tensions from 28lbs to 55lbs with natural gut.. The Natural gut is nice, but too mushy and soft and the racquet torques a lot...the Luxillons and todays current stiff strings make the racquet dull, and balls have no feeling.. These Heads, all colors ive used and use, is THE BEST synthetic gut stinrg you can buy..it is very soft, yet the feel is plush, crisp trampoline pocket feel, and all you do is hit missles with these strings! The price here is the best, under $5.00 and I buy 7-8 at atime, the tensions stay put, and no need to change strings for severl severl months, and I play 3-4x a week...and the tension still feels solid as day one! Great string and will never use another string, than these Synthetic Gut, powerful, soft and crisp, resistant,

Im an intermediate just for fun summer tennis guy...I dont play competitively. So I wasnt sure what to expect from my choice. I was hoping with the synthetic gut I would have more feel, and be able to hit solid shots with an appropriate amount of spin on demand. Compared to my prior racquet and the racquet I bought my wife which was prestrung, I cant add much spin with these strings. I was also disappointed that the Wilson logo sprayed onto the strings wore off within 2-3 weeks. I wouldnt recommend this string, and would try something else next time I need to restring the racquet.

Head synthetic gut PPS
4.66666666667/5
Head synthetic gut PPS is the closest string in playing characteristics to natural gut of anything I have tried. I am a 4.0 60s player, string my own racquets and am in it for the log haul. I want to avoid injury, play 4 times per week and still try to hit like a 25 year old. This string hits like butter and coupled with an arm saver racquet, keeps us seniors in the game. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars in all categories is that it does break easily, but at $3.95 per copy, it is a minor inconvenience for superior performance.
