That's fine. You and I know the difference. But to the average person looking at the forum, especially newcomers, they might get the false impression that zx plays like natural gut when they're nothing like each other. I know Ashaway (and other companies) try to compare their synthetic products to natural gut and that's very misleading to people who don't understand the difference. That's why these companies use the term "gut" in their marketing.
