5 must have racket strings

I was thinking today about the fact that there are 100's if not 1000's of different types of tennis strings, models, brands, etc.  There is always a core group of tennis racket string staples that everyone must carry in order to appeal to a wide customer base.  I have been trying to narrow down the group to '5 MUST HAVE RACKET STRINGS' to appeal to customers.  There will always be customers who have a specific string and guage that they must have, and thats what special orders are for.  Generally I try to offer custom services to my stringing clients.  Once I know the string they like and want to stick with I order a quantity for them and keep it on hand. 

Here are my 5 MUST HAVE STRINGS:

1.  Prince Duraflex 16g
2.  Luxilon Alu Power 16L
3.  Gamma TNT2 16g
4.  Wilson NXT 16g
5.  Babolat VS GUT 16g

This is a tight list but with these various strings you can make a variety of hybrid combinations, apease to your multifilament,gut clients and keep the price down with the prince duraflex, etc.  Let me know what you think about this list and what changes you might make.

Happy Stringing and don't forget to watch the US OPEN Tennis finals this weekend
