    I am wondering why natural gut is so expensive in England? for Bow brand in America it costs about £9, for the same stuff in England it costs £34. Whats that all about?

    any comments appreciated.

    Ah, sorry. I don't really have a clue myself, but I'm enjoying the new messageboard.

    Maybe the UK just doesn't have the volume to support a lower price.

    Liam - I buy Bow Brand Championship 16L string from Bowbrand.co.uk for £13 a set. Ask for their 16L gauge squash strings. The set includes 38 feet of string rather than 40 feet. The gauge is the same accross all ranges (Badmington-Sqaush-Tennis) only the length changes...... :mrgreen:
