So i have a reel of isospeed baseline poly 16g (which i love!) and i am looking to add a reel of synthetic gut to my collection. I am looking for something in 17g and that feels something like PSGD. I would like a 660" reel and for the price to be under $70. Any ideas?

This should feel identical to PSGD for under $70.00 as that is PSGD, and it is 660' not 660" like you are asking. Heres the link. It should fit your criteria.

The Gosen OG Micro reels (which actually read OG-Sheep Micro on the label) are awesome, at only 30 bucks a reel. You can get two of them for the price of one reel of PSGD. Not sure how Gosen plays compared to Prince, as I've never tried it in a full string bed, but they're wicked awesome in hybrids, especially with Gosen Polylon Ice 17!

Gosen is a LOT softer, but still one of the best out there in terms of control and durability.

the super cheap super fine play from babolat (either 30 or 40 bucks for a reel of 660) does me just fine, im not too picky about the synthetic gut that i cross with my poly though. never actually tried a full job of it, but if you hybrid this is a great string for the value

Any Gosen SG>>PSGD imo and many others as well.

Another vote for the Gosen Micro 17. I like it. I did break it within four hours tonight--but we were hitting the crap out of the ball for four hours straight. Can't go wrong with the price--although 'slightly' soft for some people. Probably better in a tighter stringbed.

Is the Gosen, Forten Sweet soft?

Gosen micro 17 is kind of stiff feeling to me!
I've used it for years and just switched to PSGO cause it's not as stiff. I don't know maybe it's a better string as a hybrid but by itself it's not as good as prince syn gut (IMO).

I really like PSGD but, was just wanting to try something else. I hate Sweet/Titan soft syn guts. Just curious about the Gosen? Any opinions? Thanks

Gosen is a middle of the range synthetic gut. Not as powerful/springy as PSGO/Forten Sweet, but also not as stiff as PSGD/Gamma Syn Gut w/Wearguard. It's definitely worth a try, considering the outrageous price.

Yes, pretty soft, although Gosen is the stiffer of the two.

thanks for the replys. I might try that new Pro Supex FT Ruff instead.
