I had long played 17g strings before I switched to natural gut in the mains. So naturally I've been using 17g for the gut too. I've settled into using wilson on one frame and Klip on the other. I get anywhere from 15-30 hrs out of the Wilson before it snaps but the Klip is always only 15-17. So my question is, how much more durable is 16g likely to be? And how much am I likely to notice the difference in the playing characteristics of the 16 vs the 17? Please only reply if you're talking about nat gut.
