    80% Natural Gut,10% carbon nanofiber,10% patented high-tech fiber

    I got 5 packs for $12 on eray, I plan on using in the crosses with harder co poly in the mains probably Luxilon ALU Power Rough-which I have.

    Has anyone used this string in the crosses with Luxilon and how did it play, ect. I have hit with full bed of luxilon ALU Power Rough already.

    Heres a previous discussion on this string--then more expensive.

    If you paid $12 for it I'm sure it's just basic junk syn gut. And based on the other LONG post this string is a gimmick with no natural gut.I doubt the chinese government is checking to make sure there is actually natural gut in there. Plus, if it made sense for companies to mix natural and synthetic strings the big string companies would be doing it.

    This stuff is garbage. Worst string ever. I tried it in various hybid configs and regret paying eve the little I paid for it. Still have some. Will trade 7 packs for one set of real gut.

    Heres the Question:

    Has anyone used this string in the crosses with Luxilon and how did it play, ect. I have hit with full bed of luxilon ALU Power Rough already.

    Got them today,,super fast shipping,,no heavy chemical smell, will string a half set with Lux ALU Power Rough and do some tennis drills,,
    synthetic-natural gut in the mains and Lux in the crosses for extra spin and better feel.
