Wanting to try gut

I've never tried it before because of its price. I break strings pretty frequently so thats another reason I've never tried it. I wanted to try some reasonably priced natural gut, like Titan, but I want it to be durabe too. I might just try it in a hybrid to save money. Are there any recomendations on hybriding it or which brands?

Babolat Tonic Ball Feel or BDE Rally, and pick up a set of Forten Sweet 16 to put in the crosses. If you're stringing it as well, be sure to take your time, as gut is much more difficult to string than synthetic.

look for more durability gut.... such as armourpro and pacific tough gut... they are nearly 40% last longer than normal gut......

i usually hit with an RDS 003, 62lbs OG micro 17g. well, i bought a spare racquet that was strung BDE Performance 16g natural gut at 58 pounds, and it felt like a rocket launcher... just my personal experience that natural gut is much more powerful than synthetic gut at a relative tension.

For your first try, I'd recommend Titan 15L with a good multi cross like Alpha Gut 2000 16 or 15L. It's not that expensive, so if it breaks, you haven't sunk a ton of money into it. But, if you like it, you can spend more money on your next set of gut. Then, I'd recommend that you step up to Pacific or Klip. Buy a half set of Titan and get it strung up. I think you'll see the properties of gut from that.

If your finances can possibly allow it, try a good brand gut in a full gut job, once. If you love tennis, you owe it to yourself!

Next time I order from TW I'll put a full set of Titan 15L and string it in the mains with a multi in the crosses and then put poly in the mains and gut in the crosses and see how it goes.
