Just wondering if anyone has used both of these strings? If so would you be willing to compare and contrast them for me? Specifically interested in the 17g version, but am willing to learn from anyone who has experience with both.

Many thanks!

I've used both. The Lightning is softer than the syn and it has a little more pop. The syn is a bit more durable, though.

All in all, Lightning is a terrific string for the money and considering the cost, I'd give it a play.

XX only fault is lack of durability. So if you have your own stringer, no problema.

No comparison in my opinion, Lightning blows both the Duraflex & Regular Syn Gut out of the water. Personally I'd rather use the Regular Syn Gut rather then the Duraflex as well. The Lightning certainly has a livlier feel but durability is an issue, even when though I string myself.
