I didn't string a ton of gut, so I don't recall. The worst offenders for me were extremely stretchy polys (Topspin's Poly Polar -- no longer in production AFAIK), and Soft, soft strings (Ashaway Liberty comes to mind). Maybe Polystar Energy? I'm sure there are a few other unusual strings that did the same, but it's been a long time.
I switched because I got a good deal, and my shoulder "clicks" a little bit when I pump a weight, so it would irritate my shoulder across long stringing sessions. There are systematic issues with the Gamma, too, it's not a perfect machine by any stretch of the imagination.
