    Hi,

    It has been quite some time since I have played with natural gut. Right now I'm playing with Babolat Excel Power at 64lbs. I really enjoy that string, but want to experiment with gut again. I have seen a few comments on here regarding the fact it is recommended you add a bit of tension when switching to natural gut from synthetics. If this is true, how much should I add?

    Thanks

    It depends on what kind of natural gut you use. Klip's Legend natural gut is lower powered compared to Babolat's VS gut. If you were to use Babolat's VS gut, the best of the best, maybe I would add 2-3lbs to compensate for it's high power. It should be good enough.
