    dont just go for price and dont buy a reel if youve never tried the strings before you might not like them and be stuck with 660' of string you dont like

    Depends on who you are stringing for and the mix, cheapskates to upscale.

    I prefer liberty out of that list, although all the syn guts in that list are acceptable.

    Liberty does NOT like constant pull (at least the 16g). It'll get up to ~65 lbs, but if you're on CP, it will snap. I've had it happen to me 4 times in a row.

    I think you should get at minimum Polylon Ice (Gosen) and the OG-micro generic reel(s).

    Ice for durability (for your tough string breaker clients) and the generic reels for an all around syn gut.

    Gosen OG Micro in a reel - good stuff.

    i definitely like OG Micro. i've tried the $40 reel of babolat superfine play but both durability and playability are better in the OG Micro. the OG Micro has a more crisper pop to it, where as the SFP is softer and less durable.

    Is the OG Micro the same as OG-Sheep Micro?
