i typically use nrg2 17g but just got received 2 sets of VS touch 16 at a very cheap price. Keep in mind this will be strung on a kblade tour. Need a little advice before i string up this expensive gut:twisted:

Gut has much more spin. Multis on average produce less spin than any other string, where gut is very high compared to other strings, surpassing even some polys.

Gut. Gut will give more spin than any multi I've ever used.

Thanks for the advice, I was afraid of the gauge difference between the two on such a densse string pattern

Combine gut mains with smooth, thin poly crosses. You'll get more spin than full gut and save money.

I love gut/poly but hate poly on the kbt, need a little more pop from multis orgut on the midsize frame

Put BBAce in the crosses, reasonably low 50s and the gut mains about 5lbs higher. It is crisp with good pop and the 1.12 gauge aids extra spin.

Coincidence, my favorite setup.

Mine too. This is a great setup.
