Best Answer

There are no hollow core squash racket strings, though they do exist for tennis.

There are two main types of string design in strings used for squash: monofilament & multifilament.

Monofilament strings are a single solid material while multifilament strings are braided and have no central core. Monofilament strings tend to be more durable but typically transfer more shock to the arm while multifilament strings have a softer feel at impact and are closer in playability to natural gut.

Why isn't steel used for tennis strings?

probably because with so many strings needed in a racquet, the racquet itslef probably couldn't withstand the forces of the tension trying to pull the racquet apart! and if you made one that didnt collapse itself then it would be too heavy and cumbersome to use with agility on a tennis court! a bit like a lead balloon!!
