    I've tried the red one and it plays really well, good spin and fast response. It seems crisp and comfortable enough, but I can't get the red color at a retailer that has the balls I want. Does anyone know if there is any difference in stiffness between different colors of S-gut? I can get the white; I am most interested in that one.

    I haven't noticed a difference in the few colors I've used.

    Thanks for the info on S-gut. I guess you're the right guy to talk to for this information. I'll go ahead and try the white. Thanks again for your help.

    Really stiff... I don't really like anything about it.

    Since it got a 5 star rating, I thought it was worth bumping.

    It may be the PU that's causing the lack of feel. On the bright side, it cuts down on vibrations.

    I just got 20-22 hours out of the white one before cutting it out.....with some noticeable notching. Agree with the above that it is durable but has a rather muted feel. Not a bad synthetic gut but there are better ones for sure.
