I'm sure it's been discussed here before, but I missed it. Can you tell the difference between a hybrid string job using gut mains and non gut crosses compared to a string job with 100% gut? I'm afraid to try the hybrid. I don't want to ruin a good set of gut. I string my own racquets and have used Prince synthetic gut for about the last 25 years. I buy a 660 foot reel and it's about $2.50 per string job. I decided to try real gut. Babolat VS 125/17. I love this string! But it was $53.00! (I just ordered 2 sets from Tennis Warehouse for 46 I think). $46.00 per string job is hard to justify when I've been doing it for $2.50 for 25 years. But the gut is very nice Anyway, they guy at the shop where I bought the gut told me to do a hybrid job using half of the gut on the mains. That way I can get two string jobs from each set of gut. I'm worried that I won't like the hybrid job as much as I like the 100% gut using the one piece method. Does anyone here have experience using both methods? 100% gut verses gut with anything else hybrid? Can you tell a difference?
