Well I dont break strings often. Usually my strings go really dead so I have to get my racquet restrung. So that's why I decided its best for me to get natural gut, since I like to play with feel and like the crisp feel. So which natural gut should I get. I dont want to spend the money for a full on natural gut like Babolat VS, but also dont want an extremely cheap one like Titan NG or sumthing. So I thought Babolat Tonic would be the best choice. But I just wanted to get your guys' opinion on what natural gut I should get before getting it. Why is Tonic cheaper then VS thermogut? is it worse? does it play the same? are there any other natural guts in the price range of the Tonic that are better? Also just to let you guys know how long my strings last. I used NXT for about 2 months of hitting about 4-5 times a week for a couple of hours everyday and it did not break, but lost went COMPLETELY DEAD, so I had to cut it out numerous times. This also happened with Luxilon and any other multifilament I might have used.
