    Xcel is far greater value as a cross. You'll shred the Gamma AND it's the cost of a cheap natural gut.

    Try Genesis Thunder Blast as a cross. I liked it better than Black Xcel as a cross.

    It comes in natural color now. You used to only be able to buy it in black. I like the natural better because it is softer and it does not leave black marks all over the balls.
