Best Answer

Tennis racquet strings come in four types: natural gut, polyester, nylon and Kevlar.

Natural Gut string is taken from the intestine of an adult steer.

Polyester strings consist of a single polyester with a thin coating on it.

Nylon string is usually a solid core, surrounded by various textures of coating from smooth to rough.

Kevlar tennis racquet string is stiff and extremely durable. In fact it is made from the same material as bulletproof vests.
