hey guys, I can't seem to find a reel for sale, also where it is, thanks guys!
Go for Forten Nylon black. It is SUPER soft!
is it softer than the white, if you had played with it?
does it feel the same as synthetic gut?
I really like Pro Supex Synthetic Gut Spiral Flex.
yeah it does. considering synthetic is made out of nylon
prince syn gut duraflex is available in black and many other colors.
+1 on that. People forget or sometimes don't realize "Synthetic Gut" is a fancy term/description for Nylon. At $17 a reel, the price can't be beat...even just to have some cheap string lying around for backup use or friends who ask for freebies/favors. The biggest thing many don't realize is how well Forten Nylon works in a hybrid with poly strings. It's really soft, so a little mushy in a full bed if you're used to the crispiness of a standard synthetic gut. I've used it as a cross to hybrid with a few different polys and each time, it's worked really good in my opinion.
Performance-wise I'm perfectly happy with my reel of Forten Nylon. One thing that I was a bit disappointing though, was the black paint/coating will wear off on your balls. All my practice balls have 3 black parallel lines on them after hitting with it in my crosses!
thanks a lot. I never knew that nylon was synthetic gut, but I looked up the contents of syn gut and sure enough nylon.
I have a reel of Prince Synthetic Gut 15L in black. The only use I've had for it is in case I need to use a starting clamp to bridge a short string to the tensioner.
The other black syn guts I have are Pro Supex Titan and Spiral Flex. The latter, IMO, is the best syn gut on the market. For the price, Gosen is better for a crisp syn gut, but overall (it's not much more, like 10 bucks maybe), Spiral Flex cannot be beaten.
Love them. Great cross.
Gamma Advantage. Cheap, black, surprisingly good.
