Cotton Strings
 
Am I the only one who thinks this is the next nat gut... :)
In all seriousness, has this ever been explored?

A little early for April Fools. Cotton would have zero durability

In theory seems reasonable to try. I guess someone could go to craft store and get a selection and give it a run. But I imagine its not durable at all. Especially if you hit with topspin.

I know it wouldn't be durable... But the next time I'm in MS during college football season, I'll make sure to grab some cotton and make 13G strings.

Using cotton twine would be the closest to a cotton version of gut right?

I'm not sure about cotton, but I'd like to see them make strings out of hemp.

We need silk strings.

We need silk strings. I want to string up my Vac 90 Pro with mohair.

db10s 12-25-2012 01:03 PM

I thought about silk... But cotton seemed like a bigger joke.

What about spider's silk? :twisted:

Or that stuff Peter Parker uses.

Well being that guy that gets Dunlop stuff really cheap, I'm somewhat obligated to say this: Dunlop Silk.....

Echo weed trimmer line works great if you can get a thin enough guage. EXTREMELY durable, and those sharp edges literally tear the felt off the ball. Great feel too...

That thread was part of the inspiration.
