Classic rackets play best with natural gut !
Reason is that a tight pattern, mostly 18x20, on a smaller racket heads, mostly 65..80si, really maximize power and control with natural gut. Nat gut also lasts very well on such rackets.
Its the opposite trend for modern tennis, ie playing stiff poly based strings on larger, more open stringing patterns. The trend is to use poly to help "tame" or limit the power produced on the lighter modern baseline blasters.
Synthetic gut lies inbetween these extremes, a good choice for those looking to save $$$ and get less than optimal performance results. For most players, it does not make that big of a difference.
