This is the ONLY thing that may make me look elsewhere - but it's significant.
I make look for another gut with a certain crispness that won't pop.

I've tried this VS versus Wilson in a few head to head tests with different crosses and 4G seems to result in the highest contrast between the two.

There's another thread in this section in which the OP says he's done trying different string, at least for a while. After this latest series of tests this fall I'm going to join him. Nothing else I've tested provides Touch/4G's unique combination of control, comfort, durability, and spin potential. Other setups might provide a little more comfort or a little more spin but none provide such a balanced package.
Agreed - one important point to add: the consistency of play during the life of the string job. But if I have another gut job pop overnight, I may look at Pacific.
