You owe it to yourself to splurge at least once on the good stuff just so you know for yourself too.
When I switched to gut I started with VS so I'd have that reference point for when I tried others.
I'm sure Babolat and Wilson will agree with you, but I don't. If all varieties of VS gut were taken off the shelves tomorrow, guess what? The world would still be the same, only we'd be playing with other manufacturer's strings. By its very nature even VS gut won't be as consistent as a synthetic string because every cow's DNA is different.
