I've never hit with natural gut before, but it seems like there is quite a big price difference between natural and synthetic for something that plays so similar in a hybrid.
Well it makes a huge difference if you are using gut in the mains, nothing else plays close IMHO. Gut in the crosses is a waste as cheap synthetic gut will achieve the same goal of softening the string bed.
Syn gut, and gut aren't close at all in terms of playing characteristics. Some multis get close, but none are really at that level with the current technologies out now.
