After trying three brands of gut (Performaxx, Pacific TG, and Mamba) I cannot find anything that compares to the performance of my Poly at low tension 35 +/- ? All the setups were Gut Main poly cross, except one. Strung at 54/50 50/46, 48/44 and all seem stiff as HELLL. The lower one was a bit softer but then control was an issue. Where am I going wrong. The crosses were Signum PPP, IONTEC, WC Silverstring. All seem comparable so I dont feel like the crosses mattered if they were swapped. The mamba although was the worst looking of the three actually played the softest and most elastic and that was done at 52/48. Pac TG and Performaxx even at 48/44 was ALOTTT stiffer than my Genesis Twisted Razor full bed poly at 38LB and way underperformed. I can play with them but why would I and pay the higher price. I played gut last about 10 years ago and dont remember it being this stiff or is it just that I got used to the Poly at low ? Even poly in those ranges I dont remember being that stiff. All the setups were average at best in all categories. Performaxx and Pacific looked great out of the bag and were very well made and very consistent, the mamba was very inconsistent in gauge and even took me to the fourth set to find one I could even get throught the grommets, Mamba though responded immediately to swap them no questions asked so thats fine with me. What i can say is that MAMBA played the closest and best to what I remember a gut string playing. I tried the mamba as a cross but NO WAY, too inconsistent in gauge and texture and made for TERRIBLE string snap back and bed uniformity. SHOULD I TRY GUT CROSS with Pac TG or Performaxx and a poly main and if so what poly and tension I am also thinking gut/poly much lower and much higher say 42/38 andd then another set perhaps higher say 60/56 ? WHERE AM I GOING WRONG or is this what I can expect from these guts ? Also is VS or wilson that much better and if I were to try those at what tension am I going to find that true gut performance. Im eager to hear responses because otherwise the gut experiment is done and over.
