    Paul Hanley and Todd Reid uses Klip natural gut. They both have the two right facing "greater than" stencil on the bottom.

    since Klip is an aussie company maybe some of the aussies on tour use them....what happened to the aussies????
    also, i think the klip gut is a good gut and most likely as durable as the vS since it is pretty heavily coated too, but i've not hit w. vs in years

    Klip gut

    I used Klip gut --then Klipspringer in the dark ages - 1970s with my Slazenger racquet. I loved the feel.

    I understand they also have an excellent Poly string as well. I am going to try it next time I string my stick.

    Its ironic that Klip is an Australian brand because and has quite a low market share here in Melbourne in comparison to other foreign string makes. Local so called "professional" stringers really dont push it as much as other string brands - maybe because they think it's crap or maybe because the margin on each stringing is less than the other brands - who knows?

    All I know is that I've stopped using it and I used to go and buy reels from the Klip factory in Sunshine which is about 10 minutes from where I live in Essendon.

    Good old Klip Hardcore which seemed to remind me of a low end Babolat Pro Hurricane. Durable but not as playable!

    well, I hybrided it with ashaway with the gut in the mains. The gut broke in 10 minutes....not cool. So my stringer strung the rest for free but this time the guy was put into the crosses, and so far they haven't frayed much. I do like the extra feel and power, but the price is a downside. After they break, I'm going to try pro hurricane, xcel premium and nxt. I probably might hybrid those too.
