    What is the difference between these strings

    looking to buy a reel of one of these trying to find an opinion
    and how good are they?

    i hear that they might be the best synthetic gut?

    thanks

    If you look at TW's description for OG Micro is says, "A great value for Gosen's traditional synthetic gut! Same quality as standard OG Sheep Micro 16."

    I know the OG Micro is cheaper but not sure why or what the difference is.

    Some people have reported that the OG Micro plays significantly worse than the original Sheep. I have only tried Sheep so cannot comment.

    If you search you will find this topic comes up every couple of months. I have tried both and I can't tell the difference. I always by the generic reel, great string at a great price.

    Some members say the reels are different, string breaks while stringing, etc. I have never experienced this probably and I have probably bought 8-10 reels.

    even with a significant and vigorous prestretching, it loses too much tension after 30 minutes of hitting; it's horrible. I'm talking about the $29.99 Gosen OG micro reel. i called gosen themself and they told me that it was the same as the sheep version.
