Hi guys, sorry I've been away from the boards so long. It's good to be back and reading the forum again. I've recently have gone to a full bed of natural gut (Babolat VS touch). I am using an oversize Prince Hybrid Hornet 03 because I like the maneuverability I get from this lighter racket, especially in doubles. I like to end up with a string bed tension of around 62# to start with and that usually settles in nicely after a few hittings to a comfortable 56 or 57# where I generally like to be with synthetic guts (multifibers). I tried the same principal with the natural gut. The finished string bed tension was 62#. When I went out to hit, I was not pleasantly surprised how lively and springy the gut was and I was having a hard time controlling the trampoline effect that was getting. I know that partly this was do to the larger racket head. I didn't experience this with the synthetics at the same poundage. When stringing with natty gut, should I be going even higher on the tension to achieve the same control (without sacrificing comfort)? I love the feel of the natty gut and I don't want to lose that. I notice the amazing playing characteristics of the natty gut, especially on touch shots. However, I would really like to fix that trampoline effect that I'm now getting with the tension at 62#. I once read that gut can be strung a bit higher and not sacrifice comfort and still gain control. Is it typical to string a bit higher with natty gut as opposed to synthetics and still retain the good playability and comfort associated with natty gut?
