I have 3 identical rackets...110...8 pts H/L Flex Rating 58, 11 3/4 (graphite/fiberglass)

Racket #1 strung with 17G gosen micro at 58lbs

Racket #2 strung with 17G tour bite mains at 55 lbs and 17g micro crosses at 56 lbs

Racket #3 strung with 16G Global Gut in mains at 58 and 17g micro crosses at 58 lbs.

I took them out today and hit some balls/serves.
It seems that Racket #1 does not have as much power as #2 or #3.

Racket #2 has more spin than either but less feel... It's hard to judge the power but it does feel like more power than #1 and less than #3

Racket #3.... hard to judge...it has more feel than #2 or #3 and I think more power than either.

What do you think I should be expecting based upon these setups

You pretty much nailed it.

Feel: Gut > Syn. Gut > Poly
Power: Gut > Poly/Syn. Gut (depends on the strings here.)
Spin: Poly > Gut > Syn Gut (But gut is more powerful too so it's a bit harder to tell, IMHO.)

I would expect to see pretty much what you are experiencing.

would the fact that the gut is 16G still hold the above to be true given that the other strings are 17G
