    I had been using Bab Tonic 15l/ Sweet 17 at 60 / 58 lbs. I am now using GG 15/ Pro Suplex sys gut 17 at 58 / 56. Like the ends on the strings being pointed, on the other hand the thickness is not the same all over.

    These strings play much firmer than Tonic or Klip. Will drop 2 pounds next time. The really big difference is the lack of pop. All my shots drop short. I must learn to take a bigger cut on the ball. This could be a big plus.

    After 12 hours, no sign of wear. Stringing went well. If I can get 30 hours out of these, my other 4 and half set will take me to 2011.

    Global gut is still natural gut, and that's a powerful string. Perhaps the tension is really just that high?

    And wow, 12 hours. Not bad for a 12 dollar gut.

    Quite excited about your results, since I'm starting to delve into gut myself. Just strung up my first gut hybrid last night, we'll see how that plays...
