    Hey guys, i've got a sweet deal on some reels of this stuff.
    I know difference between synthetic guts is not that big but can you anyone tell me if this plays soft on a full bed?
    I had a few elbow/wrist/shoulder issues lately and i want something soft with some crispness for a full bed and i don't i'm looking for multis nor gut.

    This year I switched from PSGD to S-Gut exclusively due also to a Dunlop deal I got. The president of my school's club team needed some sticks restrung before a match, so I used S-Gut in place of Gamma (which I didn't have). Nothing but raves, and hasn't looked back since. It is definitely softer but also more responsive. I'd put it above Prince and Gamma for softness, and between the two for responsiveness (Gamma taking the prize).

    I love the 16g in my LM Rad OS @58/59 -dropweight. I didn't even need a vibe damp.

    Not as good in my Biomimetic 200 @56. It's a more muted racquet and the combination with the S-gut didn't give me any feel.

    It plays really soft, only downside is that the strings move a lot after awhile

    I usually string Prince Lighting 16s in the crosses with my Cyberflash 16s. Tried the S-Gut 16s in the crosses this time. Pretty similar feel. A little harsher and a little less powerful. But I would try it again, maybe a pound or two down from my usual tension.

    Haven't tried it in a full bed yet. Here's what the yellow looks like hybrided:
