    When money is not an object, or you never break strings, go with gut mains and poly crosses. You will have most of the characteristics of gut with the added control of the poly.

    If you break strings often and money is a major concern, go with poly mains and a cheaper, soft synthetic (Prince syn gut orig. is popular).
