scotus, that is an impressive collection! Should last you like at least 2-3 years?! I got some cheap indian gut on **** and I just got it strung up. This might be some of the global gut that's been discussed in the past. Anyways, the stringer thought it was "very dry" and brittle looking. Hope it's not "expired" gut! She strung it up without any problems but she did put some wax on it. Can't wait to hit with it!
