- You can play with gut mains until it snaps. Gut's playability doesn't diminish much.
- Dead poly in the crosses will largely be overshadowed by gut's godliness in the mains. Back to my first point: If you've got gut in the mains, play it until it snaps.
- A good set of gut should last you at LEAST 20hours. With string savers, you can add 10hours to that.
