Many people prefer the feel of a synthetic gut over the strings you mentioned, ESPECIALLY psgd.

What's the difference between Synthetic gut and Multifilament strings?
Aren't they both trying to copy the feel of a natural gut?

Per TW learning center (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/LC/String/StringReference.html):

[ Solid Core with One Outer Wrap ]

Most popular nylon string construction - majority of “synthetic gut” strings are solid core/single wrap. Main benefits are tension maintenance and crisp feel. Quality of nylon center core, as well as size and orientation of outer wraps can influence feel and comfort.

[ Multifilament (no wraps) ]

Bundles of micro synthetic fibers are twisted together, similar to natural gut. Nylon multifilaments are typically more comfortable than solid core strings due to the cushioning effect of hundreds or even thousands of micro fibers. Resultant effect is a soft and comfortable string, recommended for players suffering from arm problems who don’t want to pay the high price for natural gut. Normal use causes multifilament strings to fray, like gut, which can be alarming to players switching from solid core strings. With the exception of Kevlar and Zyex, multifilament strings are generally classified as “soft” strings.

Multi plays A LOT closer to natural guts than Synthetic Guts due to the construction of the string. The feel is much softer since there's no core construction.

The multi will give the stringbed some softness, but will pay a price as it tries to absorb the shock. So yes multi crosses break more often in this type of hybird but easily, no.:cool:

hmm I was thinking of using the syn gut for some lift and comfort in the first place and multis seem to do this better and are closer to natural gut so i think im gonna try that combo now. thanks for the help.

Gosen Sheep Micro 17 hands down. Crisp, good feel, holds tension well and is dirt cheap.
