I would go with gosen its one of the best deals for the price.

So if you're not worried about the price...
How about using a full VS TEAM Natural Gut (by Babolat). I'd string it at about 60 to compensate the extra power you'll get with it.

wow, 15 and already sponsored, good job. and what's wrong with your current set-up? Gosen is definitely a good bang for your buck. I just bought a reel of Polylon Ice 17s, and hoping to hit with it soon.

You are sponsored, but no string company sponsored you?

I get free rackets and strings from a store...I dont use gut strings because i break them quickly..I dont like my setup because i break Babolat Pro Hurricaine Tour strings...But i switched to Luxilon Rough Strings..I Just need a string that plays like Babolat Pro Hurricaine Tour But more durable....
My setup=4x Babolat Aero Pro Drive...1 with Luxilon Rough.1 With Alu Power.1 with BPHT.1 with Babolat revenge
