I second the motion. In fact, I'll even put up some $ if anyone can find an IMF machine. Let's do it!
Yes, I played the max 200g's many years and really enjoyed them the most at 50lbs and with a thicker gauge natural gut. I have also always found the tension retention better with nat gut than any other string.

Would be great to get these reproduced but the injection molding process would make it much more expensive than the standard manufacturing.
