56 is not odd for gut. The reason they suggest 56 or lower is because they are afraid it might break if you go any higher. Higher quality gut like VS can withstand more tension, but 70+ is still a bit much. Borg strung it at over 70, but it's well known that he went through a lot of broken strings.
