Was this discontinued? Why did TW take it off the site?

No need to be snappy I just wanted to know if they had replaced it is all. Ever since they revamped the site alot of strings have gone missing. Reaction was discontinued and a bunch of strings were added N.vy, Problend w/ Duraflex . So I just wanted to ask the boards to see if they knew or if it was something that I had missed.

PSGD is by all reports the best selling tennis string in the world. I think it's a safe bet that TW hasn't dropped the string.

Nope it's just the new site that's not quite complete yet. They will be up very soon no worries.:)

PGSD is a badass string. Best syn gut imho, and I've tried a lot.

Why the USRSA uses Prince's Original Synthetic Gut, instead, as its "control" string in its playtests, and why POSG was brought back by Prince even after it had been discontinued, is never asked, though.

Naww, not the best-selling synth of all time. Say it ain't so.

PSGD had too little feel, and moved around too much for me. Not my cup o' tea.

The inclusion of #3 and #4 too should give one pause, jim.

I string a decent amount of Prince Lightning XX , which came in #4. I guess it depends on the type of people that you string for. I found out (was a good piece of advise from another respected poster on this site),It's a good all-around string that seems to appeal to women, and that was correct, as it is a good seller for them in my area.
You also have to remember that most players out there are not the connoisseurs of strings like the players on this site. Many rely on the shops stringer to advise as to which string would help their game the most.
