I thought it was stiffer than some polys and it gave me tennis elbow very quickly even as just a cross with a soft multi main.
BP, correct me if I am mistaken, but didnt Wilson discontinue all K-Gut production???

If you need a soft string that is durable you may want to try Tec TGV16 or NRG16. We use that string here when players have arm issues as they are very shock absorbent. Durability is good due to the thicker gauge (1.32mm)
