I just restrung tonight with Tough Gut - and while I don't know how it will play yet - it was MUCH easier to string than the Natural Gut - so I'm guessing that it may last longer just based on the fact I probably didn't have stringing issues.

I was just wondering if perhaps my clamps were too tight on the Natural gut - if that could cause durability issues?
You should first clean your clamps and second set them just tight enough to prevent slippage. Clamping gut too tightly can cause it to break. I would definitely check and reset them if need be. I always clean & reset my clamps when I string gut to ensure that I don't over tighten.
