when my arm hurt it helped me a lot.. and didnt sacrifice my game.. in fact played quite well.. just needed to be replaced often because the control would go

This is true i love this stuff new, plays fantastic
it does lose that killer bite+control. Which is no
different than any string to me.
But
of course now that i found how well it plays in
my racket, wilson
quits making it.

yes ur right. I used it for a while.. then i found kgut pro but thats even more hard to find or I think it was discontinued earlier than the kgut.. wilson still has kgut on intl sites like wilson france but not the us one... Since I cant get my hands on it i've been having fun with polys again but I am already getting a scratchy twingy pain inside the elbow bone so if i dont find another good performing comfort string soon i'm worried i'll pay the price and have to sit out a bunch of days to let it settle. I tried babolat excel power but its slippyer and feels more stretchy than the kgut used to. That had a nice crispy crunchyness to it that suited my game well. Have you tried xone biphase Tlm? I havent had the pleasure yet but i wonder how that compares..

Quite a few of you complain about arm pain...

Have you guys tried Pacific Classic Gut? A crisp(ier) gut that actually has some very nice control.

My understanding is it has been discontinued. TW no longer has it for sale.

I like it alot. It also got great reviews.
