Hey, I just wanted to inform some of you who were wondering if the natural gut in Wilson Champions Choice was the same as in a pack of Wilson natural gut.

There is a difference but only in the coating. The gut in Wilson Champions Choice frays much sooner. Having said that the gut in Wilson Champions Choice lasted roughly 3 months. This was playing three times a week usually two sets of doubles per day with some rallying. Both guts play awesome but I did find I had slightly more feel with the gut in Wilson Champions Choice but only slightly.

The longevity of the gut in a pack of Wilson Natural gut is quite awesome given how well it plays. I used to think VS BT7 would last longer but I'm not sure anymore.

BTW I only use gut for the mains with ALU Power Rough as a cross.

They are not different strings. Different batches of gut can be very slightly different I would think.
Well, I tried Wilson Champions Choice three times and the fraying was basically the same.

I strung up one of my BLX 90s back in January with Wilson gut that comes in the 40 foot package and hasn't shown any fraying as of yet. I play three times a week. It was installed in the mains btw.

Did you play with one of the setup's indoor and the other outdoor, play with harder hitters or on different surfaces that might wear the coating differently? I've played both recently and haven't noticed any difference. I'm not saying you're wrong, I just wouldn't think Wilson would have two variations of the string produced.

Nope, the environment and players are the same. I do notice a slight difference in softness. The gut in Wilson Champions Choice feels slightly softer.
