Glad we're clear on that now.
Do you know what would happen to sales if any string company claimed a particular string is designed for gut/poly? The string would have no chance what-so-ever in the market, because how many people actually use natural gut? Wilson/Luxilon's marketing team isn't stupid enough to narrow the market and sabotage 4G sales. It's up to the player to determine how the string are best suited.

So far, both Nishikori and S. Williams are using 4G with Wilson natural gut. Given how miserable playtesters found the 4G to play in full bed, I think there's another purpose for 4G, and it's not full bed.

So yes, it's my personal view that 4G should be used in a hybrid. And Nishikori and S Williams seem to agree with me.
