How is it? Anyone try it? It is priced around $35, how does it compare to VS and Wilson Nat. Gut?
People in this board reported it plays like Klip and in fact made by Klip.
I had never even heard of it.
too busy losing in tournaments and not enough reading up i see
No kidding! I've been playing like crap lately. Partly because I had a 2 week cold. Hit for the first time in 2 weeks on Monday.... My backhand SUCKS!
time to post in the tennis section and have everyone rate you at 2.5
not sure how the Volkl gut compares to the VS or Wilson, but instead whilst searching for reviews on the Becker gut I read its made by Volkl. So if you wanna try Volkl gut, the becker one is ard 5bucks cheaper
I got a racquet and wanted to try klip legend. shop was out of stock so they put in boris becker hero. i wonder if it is the same.
lots of power and a nice crisp feel.
I'll add a review to here on it soon on the hero gut. Initially impressions where good. Lots of tension loss though and seems the power has dropped though. Still crisp.
This ain't looking good for Volkl Gut, 10 posts into the discussion and we still don't have anyone commenting on it. But instead, someone got called-out on, and we're already talking about another gut. Haha.
Not sure what all the argument is about. Babolat gut is the only decent gut out there. All others are not worth $25-35 that they are going for
you mean wilson gut right?
BT7 is a joke.
Just an FYI if you guys care: I'm getting ready to post a review of mid-level gut when used w/ a poly cross. I'm starting w/ KLIP Legend Tour & KLIP Armour Pro, using Pacific Classic as the benchmark.
After those two, I have regular KLIP Legend & Boris Becker Hero.
I'm hitting this afternoon, then hope to post either tonight or tomorrow.
Not any more, IMHO, after they reduced the number of layers down to 7, so called "BT7".
Babolat's premium, VS, now plays pretty much like $25-30 gut, and in some aspects, even worse.
And Wilson gut is the old Babolat (non-BT7) gut.
This isnt true.. Klip and pacific make petty quality gut. bt7 is marginally better.
Ok, let me give you my opinion. Volkl gut is junk. Feels like glorified syn gut. stiff and not much pop. A step below pacific classic so I wouldn't pay more than $23-24 for it. In fact, Mamba supra natural feels better but is less consistent gauge wise.
I didn't care for Mamba Supra gut. Too dry and brittle. Brakes way too easy. Volkl gut is a ton better gut than the Mamba guts.
I have Volkl gut in the mains in one of my frames now. Durability is average. I haven't broken it yet, but it notched fairly quickly. The yellow has worn off in the middle. There's a little fraying, but not too much. When installing it, Volkl gut is stiffer than Klip (or any other gut I've used for that matter). Not bad comfort wise. Not as much spin as other nat. guts, but better than most synthetics. Like TheRed stated, feels like a $23-25 gut.
The Volkl natural gut hybrid packages give you a shorter length of gut than the polyester or multifilament. They want you to use the gut in the cross? Or is 20'/6m enough for the mains?
I have the volkl V-fuse hybrid gut/poly in my V1 and Organix 6. The tension dropped off really fast from 55 to 40, I think it has only been a month.
I think I will go back to Tour Bite and Vs. for my hybrid setup. Those two strings seem to play nice together, the 19 gauge Tour bite is holding it's tension nicely and obviously hasn't broken yet and it's been a month or so on my PB8 which gets the most use.
