    Anybody have an opinion on this? Unfortunately reels of this string are nowhere to be found. I'll probably buy a couple packages of JC, but prefer getting reels.

    Are there any other similarly priced synthetic gut strings that can replicate the nice crisp pop that JC micro has?

    Nope, sorry...

    Babolat Super Fine Play is nothing like Super JC...at all.

    Personally, I think Micro Super is a little closer...

    I'd recommend you obtain packages of Babolat's Super Fine Play, Prince's Original Synthetic Gut and Wilson's Extreme Synthetic Gut and see how close you can come with those.

    extreme is close, but not JC. You may want to try some of gosen's other synguts, like AK - nice string

    FWIW, I don't think there is another JC.

    Just wannabes. And the differences among those left being so minor, I thought it likely better to suggest a range of experience, and so to include minor differences that might not seem so to someone new to string world properties, when trying those out too.

    I used all 3... Babolat Super Fine Play is a little more close to Prince Original Syn Gut. I wanted to suggest Wilson Syn Gut Extreme, but really, it's not the same as Super JC. The Gosen AK is softer than JC...granted, I've only tried AK Speed...

    I have some sets of JC 17 that have been well stored. What do you think those would be worth in the wild?
