I'm not a string breaker and have had good luck with 17G VS in my 16x19s, so I don't this will be horrible. Even though gut is more expensive, still seems to be a cheaper path than having to restring poly so fast. I'll report back on the gut, but it will be next week before i'll get it in and be able to hit withit. Meanwhile, I'll keep a close eye on 99s posts to see if anyone has cracked "the code". Man, I'm having fun right now.
It's definitely more of an issue with string breakers and harder hitters. I had a 99s demo that was strung with Black Widow mains and NXT multi cross and used it for a week without any issues, even though you would think this was far from an optimum setup.
