How are people using 15 Nat Gut: in what rackets , with what patterns and what tensions?
I've got to string a BPD+ today for a guy who uses natural gut. For him, I use Babolat Touch 1.35. He never breaks it, rather it breaks itself after a period of time. He loves it. When I played NG, I preferred the thinner guages.@Rabbit , I ordered a set each of 15, 15L, 16, and 17g Klip NG from another source. I'll keep the "skinnier" string for a couple of closer pattern rackets. But after stringing up some Pros Pro 1.40mm syn gut last night and going for a hit this morning with a couple of open pattern rackets I am intrigued about these rope-like strings. In a 95" 14x18 I thought the `15g sg was fine for my 65+ yr old game. Heck, I gave up wood rackets only 30-35 yrs ago and used nothing but syn gut back then
I've found Babolat gut is a bit more pliable than Klip so you get a bit more power with Babolat guts when comparing similar gauges.hows power level of 15g klip vs tonic 15l?
thanks, i was wanting to string around mid tension in my prostaff 95. I know you should typically string gut at the high end, but i like medium tensions, so klip 1.40I've found Babolat gut is a bit more pliable than Klip so you get a bit more power with Babolat guts when comparing similar gauges.
Klip is the most durable gut I've used but it's a bit stiffer. I tend to string it about 5 lbs lower than most other guts.
is there a difference between uncoated and coated for klip? was wanting to try the $30 klip legend gut either 15l or 15 gauge. assume thats the coated one. Have triedI hit a lot with klip gut 16 g uncoated, full bed, and it is not low powered. I string it up 63-64 lbs. Gives great control, power, and a comfortable hit.
Reminds me of the older guts of the 60's like Victor Imperial gut. If you want a lower powered gut, try Luxilon gut, as little lower powered and a firmer hit.
