Just to be clear OP, while those two statements may appear to be contradicting, what Say Chi Sin Lo means by 'lasting 20 hours' is time until it breaks. He is correct that gut truly does not 'go dead' like many synthetic strings, nor does it lose much tension after it's initial tension loss.

Pardon the pun, but provided it doesn't break, you can literally play with gut "until the cows come home"...
