    The older stock was reportedly made by BDE whereas the current stock reportedly by Babolat.

    I could not tell a difference between Prince gut and Babolat VS when I played them side by side. They also look exactly the same besides the printing on the string.

    I would say Prince = Babolat but probably like 90% of the original VS gut. I have both sets and can tell there is a slight difference but only for those who have used the original non BT7 one. If you had a choice between BT7 and Prince, get the Prince.

    Nothing beats original VS but sadly all of use are just going through our old stock :(.
