    Dear all

    I have been waiting for the natural coloured string in 16 for a mighty long time. What will be a good alternative to this?

    (I've got a tournament coming up and the shipping time will be too long)

    Regards

    If you've got the cash to burn, go with Klip Legend. If you're looking at your wallet a little more carefully, go with a good multi.

    I think Gaucho has stock of natural. They do take up to a week to arrive in mail, unless you live near NJ. Pacific Gut or Klip Natural Gut is close to Gaucho in terms of price.

    They only have 15L, what about in terms of playing, which is the closest to it?

    Natural Gut is Natural Gut. Not much variance other than price.

    I have to disagree with you on that. Some guts are dryer, some hold tension better than others, some better feel. But I've only tried one other gut than gaucho and that is why I want other who may be more experienced and knoledgeable in it to advise me

    I use klip legend as back up when i can't get gaucho. Imo it plays a little crisper until broken in and has great spin and durability but is nearly as hard to get as gaucho at the moment. tw has half sets only.
