    I am a new stringer and planning on buying some string in bulk, particularly natural gut of some sort. Any suggestions?

    +1 for VS, but what do you mean you are buying it in bulk?

    I'm looking to buy reels to try and save some money. Any other suggestions for strings for a stringer who wants to be prepared for all requests?

    Natural gut does not come in reels. Just get what you think you are going to use as you go along.

    What about the reels of hurricane 660 feet for 140? Also, what is best for synthetic gut?

    Hurricane is popular for hybrids -- I do not string a lot of poly though. A couple of SG's are a good foundation for full jobs or hybrids. I have a reel each of 16 & 17 gauge Gosen. Hard to beat for the $ IMO, but it comes down to personal preference. Maybe add a value multi in sets. No need to get too much to start out. You can build up your inventory as you go.

    if you are looking for a poly, dont go with hurricane. I would go for Topspin cyberflash. Longer reel of a better string at half the price
