On special occasions (birthday, christmas, wedding day ..) I use gut (Bab, Dunlop, Others) in my POG mids. They mostly survive 10 hrs. of beating (singles). I use string savers 6x6 in the middle. I moisturize with olive oil and cut the frays with a nail cutter. Question is : When gut looses tension in wet (H2O) environments, why not in oily environments ? I am not convinced that "the oil is natural and it is in the gut already" avoids the gut from loosing tension. Any thoughts ?
