    Strung VS Touch 16 in my PD OS Saturday morning on my Alpha Pioneer FL. I stretched it Friday night then let it hang all night. Whew, it is a different animal (pardon the pun) to string than the ususal multifiliment (syntronic brio). Hit with it for almost two hours in practice Saturday evening and I like the difference. I feel I have a bit more control (3.5 level player). Thanks to all last week who gave me advice on stringing gut for the first time.

    i did my first gut job too last weekend using bow brand with my tour 90 and MS200TT at 58 lbs.

    it took me more time to string - being very careful not to screw it up.
    i have not hit with it yet .

    congrats on the gut, guys. I'm relatively new to it myself, like five string jobs with it. hits great, eh? higher tension may be better, or hybrid with stiffer crosses. kinks are bad news. even so, either be rich or string for yourself and gut will keep you happy.

    Just started using a Gut Hybrid last week. All I can say is it that gut is amazing. The difference from BB or any other string is unbelievable.
