what is the difference between these two and why is tonic so much cheaper?

Tonic doesn't go through the rigorous quality control that vs gut does. It can vary in gauge throughout the set as a result. If you're just using gut as a cross it probably won't make much of a difference.

Usually the consistency of the gut thread is what the difference is. More imperfections and less consistent string thickness is all.

"Now packaged as Tonic+ Ball Feel. Same great natural gut quality as Babolat VS. Only differences are slightly less consistency in gauging and minor cosmetic blemishes. Exclusive Thermogut Technology Finishing increases durability (+25%) and resistance to humidity (+60%), according to Babolat. Excellent feel and control."

VS is made from healthy cows.
Tonic is made from cows with diarrhea.
