Best syn gut?
 
Looking for the best syn gut out there, 16 or 16L gauge, with an emphasis on spin potential and durability. Any suggestions?

in TT, i mostly see Gosen OG micro, Forten Sweet, and PSGDF. those are the most popular in the synthetic gut catagory.

Price is not an issue though.

It is totally subjective. Obviously. Best to try some out on your own.

Prince synthetic gut with duraflex is the default standard. It does everything well and nothing great so it is a good starting point.

I like volkl syn gut with duraguard as well. Plus it has a cool look to it with the pinstripes.

I tried forten sweet in a full bed and don't see why anyone woul like it. It was very mushy with no bite.

Good luck

PSGD 16 is my default string. I have 4 packs of it as my backup string.

Let's just say it doesn't matter as long as we stay in the syn gut/cheap multi range...

Fugazi 08-23-2013 11:16 AM

I just ordered a bunch: Prince premier attack, PSO, PSGD, Gosen OG Sheep (both micro and micro super), Gosen AK pro and Babolat N.Vy.

good starting point(s).

Just do what I'm doing right now. Order a whole bunch of different types of skynthetic gut and try them out for yourself. They're so cheap it won't hurt your pocket to do so and it will be fun.

I ordered about 8 different brands and when one breaks I just string up with a different one and compare and keep notes. I just started so I've only compared the Forten natural vs forten white (not as different as some people have described here). Natural color just feels slightly more plush. I break synthetic in about 8-10 hrs of play so I just strung up one of my racquets with Gosen (natural color) day before yesterday. Looking forward to comparing it tomorrow :)

What would be the best cheaper multis? (Again, with spin and at least decent durability in mind.)

you might want to try Head RIP Control, might be a tad lower powered than others.

A hybrid of Ashaway Monogut ZX mains and Dunlop Hexy Fiber crosses will average out to about $11. That will give you more spin and durability than anything on your list. I like it better than full bed Monogut ZX.

Technifibre makes a really good basic synthetic gut.

maxply 08-23-2013 05:13 PM

I like Gosen micro super 16L (1.25) = good spin - so - so duribility.
Gamma syn gut is good and comes in many colors.
Gosen Ak pro is a really good string but a bit expensive.
