How to the two BDE natural guts (Rally and Performance) compare with Bow Brand Natural Gut?

I haven't used the Rally, but I've used the BDE perf 17g, 16g, and Bow in 16L and 18. THe BDE is better, a great string overall, but I don't mean to diss the Bow. It's a great value -- the 16L plays like a 17; the 18 is too thin to do much damage to a tennis ball. Most Bow sets are relatively short, so it makes sense to measute it carefully when you string it up.

I tried BDE Perf, Rallye, and Bow Championship. I'm sticking with the BDE Perf. I found the Bow to play too springy for my liking. I believe it's due to the thick coating. BDE perf is a better value than Rallye in my opinion because it is more durable and just has a better overall feel.

Can anyone compare Rally Gut to Bow?

Rally is ok, feels like a top level gut at first but deteriorates faster Bow. Both have more power than Perf.
