Why are you so committed to get people to use Gut/Alu. You obviously like it, well good for you. I like RIP Control even though a lot of people hate it. If I don't like poly in my frame then I don't like poly in my frame. Simple as that. I tried a few polys. Didn't see the benefit, didn't like the stiffer feeling, definitely didn't like the dead sensation after a few hours. So I'm going to stop using poly. If I miss or make a shot, it's not because I have poly in my frame, it's because of my technique. If pros know what's best, then how come some pros don't even use gut in their frames? After all, isn't gut the "best" string you can get? Maybe it's because they don't like gut for their own specific reasons. I just don't like a certain kind of strings. I'm not speculating about about gut/Alu, I'm speculating about putting any poly in the cross. Read my posts and when did I single out Alu? Read carefully before you run your mouth.
