    i typically use nrg2 17g but just got received 2 sets of VS touch 16 at a very cheap price. Keep in mind this will be strung on a kblade tour. Need a little advice before i string up this expensive gut:twisted:

    Gut has much more spin. Multis on average produce less spin than any other string, where gut is very high compared to other strings, surpassing even some polys.

    Gut. Gut will give more spin than any multi I've ever used.

    Combine gut mains with smooth, thin poly crosses. You'll get more spin than full gut and save money.

    Put BBAce in the crosses, reasonably low 50s and the gut mains about 5lbs higher. It is crisp with good pop and the 1.12 gauge aids extra spin.
