    Is Wilson Natural Gut any good?
    It doesn't have many reviews. I'm planning to use it with SPPP in the Mains and Wilson Gut in the crosses.

    Or should i do SPPP in the Mains and NXT Tour in the crosses?

    Yup, it's good quality gut strings. It's made by Babolat & rumours has it that it's simply repackaged Babolat VS gut. For some reason, I've heard from some of the retailers here that Wilson is no longer offering the string.
    I strung my racquets Federer style with Wilson Natural Gut in the mains & Luxilon BB Alu in the crosses and the combination felt fantastic much easier on the arm than with a poly on the mains. Utilize string savers when the gut starts fraying and you'll get additional life out of the Wilson Natural Gut.

    Wilson gut is fantastic. I just used some 17g in my PS85. The string was very smooth and felt amazing from the first hit.

    If your pocket can stand it Give Gut A Try. The tension holding properties of the gut is far better than NXT, so you should maintane a consistent stringbed longer.:cool:

    do a search and you'll be able to read plenty of opinions for using gut in the crosses or the mains.

    depends what you want. playability or durability. IMO, it's a waste of money to put gut in the crosses but if you can afford it go ahead and knock yourself out.
