I just tried stringing with natural gut for the first time and it was not as bad as I thought it would be, but did have a few problems. When stringing the crosses how do you work around the mounting system without kinking the string? Stringing the last 2 crosses was also close to damaging the string it felt like. Can you get around that by just waxing the mains? Do you tie the knot with a single half-hitch or double half-hitch?
