    And spending 400 dollars per reel...(Okay, for some people fine, but most people probably would just buy sets...).

    Oh, and ya can't sell something that isn't produced, that's a big one...as far as I found (google), there are no natural gut reels...perhaps because the market would be rather small...idk

    Because the reels are open and the moisture might damage the strings. In single packages it stays "fresh" until the moment you begin to string it.

    wrap it in foil and toss it in the freezer...would be one hell of a conversation starter when family members take a look in the fridge

    Well.......

    Gut is very susceptible to temperture and moisture changes, so it's not practical to put it in a reel. That is why it comes in the sealed packages. There is no way to seal a reel and get the required string out. However, they do sell gut on boxes of 10 sealed packages for discounts (sometimes you get 12 for 10).

    Don't know

    Sorry, can't help you there as we get our string directly from the manufacturers or distributers. You may want to talk to TW directly and look for other sites with sales adds.
