So there I was, playtesting, just hitting with a friend, warming up for a set. I was having fun like never before, hitting spins, right over my buddy's head (short guy) and trying for more and more... The 15 min into that madness, PING!, the mains gone.
I had a bit left over of the same gut, so I patched the mains. Let's see how long this lasts. Needles to say, I'm addicted to this combo already!
How long was the gut in there before you restrung the crosses?
I shudder to think of what you mean by patching the mains with some leftover gut.
Edit: NVM about the first point, I wouldn't suggest it regardless.
