    Need some recommendations....I'm looking for the best feeling 17g syn gut to use in the cross strings on my 18x20 pattern nBlade 98. I've got Bab Super Fine Play 17g in the racket right now with the SPPP 1.18 mains (which I like a lot) but before I buy any more I wanted to get you guys' opinions on other syn gut options. Here is what I am thinking about as of now:

    Bab Super Fine Play 17
    Gosen OG Micro Sheep 17
    Gamma syn gut 17
    PSGD 17

    All are about the same price. Any reason to pick one over the others? Any other suggested strings? No multi's.

    Gosen OG Micro 17.....best price/performance ratio...I even like it better than multis in hybrids. The best syn gut imo..

    The Forten Sweet seems to be a popular choice that often gets recommended for that type of hybrid setup, but I haven’t yet tried that particular setup myself.

    (I’m lovin’ the full SPPP 1.18, though).

    Any other votes? Although the Bab Super Fine Play felt nice as a cross string, it broke pretty quickly for a hybrid set up (~6 hours). I'll probably just go with the Gamma SG 17.
