    I've used these individually, I used the 17g for the longest time and tested the 16g. Baseline is a wierd poly in the sense that it's between a 1st and 2nd gen poly. It keeps it's tension a bit better than a 1st gen poly but it's also stiffer than a 2nd gen poly. Gosen OG Micro is one of the best syn guts out there, especially for the price.

    The 16g Baseline is a bit stiffer than the 17g, and I personally love the 17g, so I would go with the Isospeed Baseline 17g. What is your playing style/rating?

    I start buying the prince syn gut with duraflex and it lasted me 2 hours¡¡¡¡¡ so i switch to wilson super spin and i broke it in 5 days
    So i give a try to the gosen polylon in mains and super spin in crosses and i dont like it.
    im a college player and my style is big forehands and backhands with too much spin and kick serve

    Have you every tried full poly at a low tension? I'm a serve and volleyer who hits with heavy spin. I put touch at a premium, but if I were to use full synthetic gut, I break it in an hour. My shoulder is pretty picky when it comes to poly, and the first time I tried full Polylon at 58 lbs, my shoulder said no. I then tried out full Isospeed Baseline 17g at 58 lbs and my shoulder said yes! Then, about a month ago, I thought I would break out the Polylon and go for a really low tension (for me). I strung it up at 45 lbs, and I was in heaven. Spin and touch were so easy it was like playing a video game. All it took was a few adjustments for the added power (which isn't nearly as much as you think it would be). These are just my $.02. :)

    Well then, you should stick with a hybrid of Baseline 17g mains and OG Micro crosses. If the OG Micro starts breaking too soon, a more durable alternative is Babolat Superfine Play, only $4 more.
