What do you think is better? Please only vote if you've tried both
Gosen OG Sheep
well about to try some forten sweet. i'll vote later
Since you are talking about the generic Gosen, Sweet is head and shoulders better (unless you want a stiffer, deader string). Whether it's worth $20 more per reel is up to you...
so are you saying forten sweet is stiffer?
No, generic Micro is.
Sweet is a bit too springy.I prefer og micro to make the stringbed firmer.
Btw,I only use those in the hybrid as cross.
You shoul also take a look at this poll (and vote):
People just want to buy the cheaper reel. I'm trying Sweet 17 now and it's definitely better than sheep micro.
What are the generic / non-generic versions of Gosen?
I believe the two are slightly different and both come in at least 2 gauges, so the answer might be quite different depending on the racquet, tension and eventually the other part of the hybrid.
The non-generic Gosen is a much nicer string to me than the Forten. Forten feels really good when it's fresh, but it seems to get really springy really fast, where the Gosen seems to last a while longer before it starts to feel like I'm losing control with it.
I like thr gosen better
what is generic or non-generic Gosen OG Sheep Micro??
I prefer gosen OG micro as well for stiff racquets. If I use the micro as a cross string, it gives a better feel than the forten. however, if you don't care about string playability, go with forten, its more cheaper.
The "generic" is called "Gosen OG Micro" on TW, and costs $30 for 660' reels.
The "non-generic" is called "Gosen OG-Sheep Micro" on TW, and costs $3.79 per set or $35 for 330' reels.
IMO, they are different strings. But do a search and see for yourself, this has been discussed ad nauseam.
EDIT: Sweet is still better than either of the two Gosen Micro strings.
