    I like this set up it felt good, but its a little pricey for me is there a cheaper hybrid that plays close to this one? All comments are helpful thank you

    I have not used both guts so i cant comment on similar playability but pacific classic is a lot cheaper. And pros pro black force is very similar to rpm at 5.70 a set and 50 a reel.

    There is no natural gut that plays like VS aside from Wilson NG, but that's the same price. You can do a Pacific Classic mains and another poly cross, however.

    i wasn't think i would do gut again because of the price, i was think a SG but i have heard that the poly cuts threw that pretty fast.

    The only similarity between natural gut and synthetic gut is that half of their name is the same. Synthetic gut is simply meant to be inexpensive string with neutral performance all around. It will feel absolutely nothing like any natural gut, let alone VS.

    ok, i might just go full poly then because I haven't had an issue with my arm last time i went full poly.
