I sense a TW Prof experiment in the making!

And.....I also sense a new product for someone to market..........
The guy that sold Performaxx natural gut strings on the bay also sold two different spray lubricants meant especially for gut. I remember a poster posting a review of it, used on a bed of full gut. I think he said it worked very well - that the gut never got "out of place." At the time I dismissed it as being too much trouble. But if copoly "dies" primarily because of increasing friction then lube is really the only answer, until a company figures out how to make a string that doesn't get scuffed, notched or dented. So if we're going to lube, maybe we should just lube gut.

Anyway, we're veering the Monogut ZX thread a little off course here, so I'm starting a new thread.
