Hi!

I received (from TW) POG OS strung with Klip Natural gut 16 @ 60 lbs. I was very happy with this combination. Next I strung it with Luxilon Ace 18 and I am very disappointed... I can not describe details but lot of easy shots are out or net. I am not confident now and do not know what is wrong. Maybe Ace 18 is not good combination with POG? Maybe I got tension wrong (58)? Any ideas?

JDA -- Gut is very different from Lux Ace 18. VERY DIFFERENT re. feel and playability. Maybe you respond well to a string that renders maximum feel and feedback -- such as natural gut. If the cost of gut is a factor, you might consider a hybrid w/ natural gut mains and synthetic crosses. Install string savers and you should get some great durabilty as well as fairly good feel.
