    What would be the best monofilament synthetics, which must meet the following criteria:

    1) Durability
    2) Feel (as in closest to natural gut)
    3) tension maintenance

    Cost is not a factor.

    I have tried a few cheaper mono synthetics and i think Gosen Sheep Micro SUPER 16 plays closest to what I want in term of feel, but the durability is up to what I am looking for.

    Thanks

    why mono? If you want gut like feel and cost is not a factor then why not buy gut? If not try a top end multi if you want feel. My tip is weisscannon Explosiv. Enjoy

    Klip Legend is a durable natural gut; probably more durable than a lot of synthetic guts out there. you might want to give that a try.

    Monofilament synthetics don't feel like gut.

    well if you read my post right, i never said mono synthetics feel like gut, i said monofilament that feel closest to gut, which means "feeling closest to gut" is the bench mark.
