    I'm getting ready to purchase a set of Klip Legend strings in a few days and was wondering what the string looks like. I wish the bag had some kind of see through window so that I can see what the string looks like. If someone has a photo of it, I would appreciate it very much.

    It is basically a light yellow colour natural gut, quite fibrous looking. Most gut looks pretty similar. Am I missing the point here?

    if you want a more white one, you have to look for Vs gut

    It's just something that I've been wondering for the past hour. I know it's not going to make any difference, but it's a question that's been lingering. Thanks.

    Ah I see, yep a bit more yellow and fibrous than VS. Those are the only two I've tried though. Definitely more durable than VS, a little less "gut feeling" if that makes sense

    Armor Pro starts out very white, but it's a coating that flakes off quickly. But as far as see-through packaging goes, I believe that exposure to light would break down the string over time.

    KLIP Legend is shown on the center racquet below. Light yellow colored natural gut as indicated above, and yes, it looks a little rough.

    Nice looking collection! (I like the red, white, and blue trim tape touch.)

    Thanks! Yes, the R/W/B is how I differentiate them, especially if I'm using different strings that look alike.
