    Any Gamma XL users might want to stock up while some retailers still have it. Gamma tells me it has been discontinued and they are completely out of sets. They say Gamma Synthetic Gut with Wearguard and Gamma Marathon are the closest replacements.

    That is the second time that XL has been discontinued <s>. It is a fine old string. I don't know that it is THAT close to Marathon.

    Ah, Gamma Marathon. Two years ago, I was told by a Gamma telemarketing rep that Marathon 16 had been discontinued and that they had no inventory. I found a distributor with something like 50 sets and bought them all because the string was important for some hard hitting racquetball player customers.

    A bit later Gamma told me that it was a miscommunication between sales and product management. Lovely. I won't run out for a few more years.
