I doubt many pros use it, but I fall into the camp that thinks this is probably the right string for 80-90% of the amateur population.

thiemo de bakker actually used it throughout his entire junior career and for the first year or two of his pro days and only switched to champions choice about a year and a half ago and is now using pacific i believe...

Yeah I use it, and many of my teamates with Babolat and Head racquets use it too. It's a popular synth gut

I used this string for about a year when I was still an intermediate player. It was cheaper and it worked well. The person that strings my raquets for me charges $15 if you provide your own string, and $25 if he uses his own string(Gamma Syn. Gut). This worked out well because at 4.25 a pack, I actually saved $5(and got a better string). Now I have moved on to poly/multi hybrids, as my game has improved greatly.

Bottom Line: Good string for an intermediate player taking a first step into advanced racket customization(Not that choosing a string is that advanced but you know what I mean.

Prince has some nice strings, but their hybrid packs are also really good.

The Prince and Gamma synthetic guts are the same price. I wonder why he was charging $10 for a set?

Not a fan of Prince strings. IMO there are better strings for a cheaper price. EXP and Tournament Poly were nothing compared to Isospeed, and they both cost more...

I really liked the PSG w DF because of the durability. It plays pretty well and holds it tension longer. I've been using it for about 8 years now, on four different racquet upgrades (LM Rad, Lm Prestige, PC600, I.Prestige, FXP, and MG Prestige) and the durability has been consistant. I think it speaks of Prince's string quality control as well.

I would love it if i could have Fresh PSGD at 60p everytime i played, it feels great new but after a couple of 2 hour hitting sessions it loses its greatness.

I love it, but its just too annoying to break in a couple days. It feels real good when its about to break. Anyone else get that?

yeah i have used it once but it seems that initially it feels bit stiff etc.. then i play more and gets more comfortable and feels great then breaks..

I tried a set a couple of years ago after listening to all the hype, it was terrible, cut it out, and went back to multi/poly hybrids.

When I used it, I would after only a few hours.

How any pro manages to use it and not break it after only a set or so is beyond me.

Nice and easy to string up though, but in terms of performance its only average IMO.
