      Their is no recommended strings for this particular racquet. The Wilson Blade is String Friendly, which means it is not as hard on strings opposed to other racquets. You do get a variety of free string with the racquet for free. If you want more spin we would suggest the Ripspin. If you want a more softer feel, we would suggest the Sensation. Strung lower for more power, and higher for more control.
