    Does anyone use these strings? How does it play? How does it feel?

    Any info would be great...

    Slightly softer than ALU and similar to BB Orig.

    Save your money and get Ashaway MonoGut for ½ the price.

    See their website or a free demo !!!

    Hmm... I just submitted my info for a free sample... I usually string my racquet at 62lbs with syn gut and 60lbs when I'm using ALU power... What's a good tension for Monogut?

    Get the 16L and string it the same as ALU.

    Better yet, put a good 17 syn gut (LW,NRG,NXT,Xcel) in the mains at 62 and MonoGut 16L in the crosses at 55, and thank me later !!!

    that combo wouldn't boast well at all for someone who is even a moderate string breaker. 'm not trying to contradict bsandy but monogut broke really quick for a poly n went dead after 1 or 2 weeks for me.
