    i got 2 x sets of this gut in a trade

    ive never used a full bed of gut.

    My usual setup is wilson gut / alu power / fluro / proline II

    I may use this in a full bed, but it may be too powerful. I'll most likely use it in my usual hybrid and see how it goes.

    I'll be sure to post some photos

    Never do. You will cut them in no time. Even the roughest textured and sharped poly as cross is better than natural gut. Besides, the pattern will be changed with every shot so you will have to fix it - which is a mission close to impossible.

    Hard to imagine a string with better bite than this. Also, presumably waterproof--Brilliant.

    My 1890 Steinway grand has white keys made from the thigh bones of bulls. This was common before ivory was "imported" from Africa.

    I have a set of Bull Gut. I've also started using gut again. Once I go through what's in my racquet now, I'll string mine up with Bull Gut and report back.

    The stuff I go through for you guys. ;)

    I have played with it in a Yonex and a Head- both 90"

    Both strung at 65/62. It is a fantastic string. Would I buy it again? If I had the cash, perhaps. I am one of the only people here who actually likes BT7, so I'm a bit odd in terms of my string preferences.

    However, if you enjoy gut and win a slot machine payout, give it a shot.

    I will commend Pacific on their customer service. I had an issue with a pack and it was taken care of immediately.

    Good read thanks Torres! I got my own stringer after my local guy screwed me over a couple of times - racquet damage, tensions too high, week long delays.

    I hope someone strings up some Bull Gut at some point. I am curious.

    I will, soon. As promised.
    Just got a Yonex EZONE Ai 98.
    Will have it strung with a full set of Bull Gut soon.

    Contact Lacoste and they may invest - seems like a good fit.
