    Looking at Price/Performance ratio, would you go with GUT/Synthetic or FULL Multi?

    Gut/Synthetic = ~$11-$20
    Multi = ~$8-$19

    There are always exceptions to the above mentioned price ranges. I always ask my customers that want a multi like say the Xcel Power which runs $18 here or Wilson NXT for $14 here if they want to try a Natural Gut / Synthetic Gut combo for the same price. Babolat Tonic is $25 here and Gosen OG Micro Sheep is about $1.75 in reel form. Half of Gut + Half of Synthetic = ~$14.25

    There isn't really a huge price difference, if at all. I would say that all my customers prefer the Gut (mains)/Synthetic (crosses) combo over full multi. It might just be mental. What do you guys think? Any good reasons to go full multi over gut/syn combo? Tension loss perhaps?

    Cheers
