5 tennis strings for under 10 dollars that create extra bite

Create additional bite and spin to without spending a fortune.  These 5 tennis strings are sure to give you the added control for your game:
1.  Volkl Cyclone 18g tennis strings (retail $7.99 set) -A recent addition to Volkl, the Cyclone is a copolymer 'gear' shaped string which provides plenty of grab on the ball which in turn gives players the maximum amount of spin possible.

2.  Tourna Poly Big Hitter Silver Rough String 16g (retail $7.95 set) Bringing even greater spin potential than its thicker version Tourna Big Hitter Rough Blue 17 provides excellent performance at a moderate price. Using the same polypoly ether composition as the original Big Hitter this string features a significant textured surface to enhance ball bite and create even greater spin One of the few strings to utilize aluminum fibers. Big Hitter Rough possesses surprising resiliency and power from a typically stiffer string construction. This string still places its primary concerns on durability control and additionally spin allowing players to swing freely from the baseline without fear The German engineered string placed highly in tension maintenance and resistance to string movement Due to the stiffness and good tension maintenance it is recommended to string this one 5 / 10 lower than normal. So if you are a baseline player searching for a durable string to create tons of spin to place your powerful groundstrokes give this one a try. The thinner gauge of this string gives enhanced spin and feel but makes it slightly less durable than the 16 gauge version. 

3.  Prince Topspin plus 16g (retail $ 7.00 set) - For players seeking greater spin from an all around performing string. Prince Topspin Plus 16 utilizes texture to meet these needs. The effective texture is created by the addition of six extra fibers spiral wound around the string to create raised edges along the string. The central section of the string provides solid tension maintenance and durability. Topspin Plus is a solid string choice for baseline and all court players that are looking for a string that helps to generate spin. This string will play slightly softer than the 15L variation due to the lack of aramid fibersComposition Monofilament polyamide outerwrap.  This traditional string has been around for sometime and continues to be a popular option for players looking for increased spin and that do not want a poly based string.
