It happened to me last week.
It is unpleasant because of the cost
BTW:The 17 gauge gut was pre-stretched.
The string was in the original Wilson sealed envelope.

Once more-I do NOT know whether the same is true for 16 gauge
Basically there is a tradeoff between more responsive/elastic thinner gauge
and more durable 16 gauge.
I used to have similar problems with Klip 20 years ago
