Tier One Sports currently offers 2 type of strings: Co-polyester and multifilament.
The following are general guidelines of why a player would or would not choose to play with co-polyester strings.

- More ball control
- Increased string durability
- Not as arm-friendly. (if you have a history of arm pain, please note that co-polyester strings can affect your arm negatively! Also, if you are below the age of 13 and above the age of 65 and have no prior experience playing co-polyester strings please consult with your coach or racquet technician to find out if this type of string is right for you)
