Söderling expands into tennis string

Former Swedish touring pro Robin Söderling was once ranked as high as #4 in the world. So it’s safe to say he knows everything there is to know about tennis and the gear you use to play the game. Last year, we told you about his tennis company RS Tennis, releasing their own brand of tennis ball.

RS Tennis String RS LyonNow they’re back with another new product. What do you use to hit that ball with? Strings. Well, OK, you need the racquet too- maybe that’s in the works.

8/29 – we’ve  just learned that RS is getting into overgrips next.

The RS Lyon is a premium monofilament professional string with a round profile. Robin’s face is on the bag. The website adds “This string gives you great power effects with kept control and feels soft to your body.” Below, a video introduction by Robin and review courtesy of our site sponsor Tennis-Warehouse.
