Comments: The price is good but I could not tell it was real gut. The yellow coating on the gut totally ruins the gut qualities and ends up playing more spongy like a good multi. I put gut in the mains and was hoping for a feel like Babolat VS/co-poly hybrid, not even close. I would not recommend for a gut in main hybrid. On the flip side, it probably would be great with the poly in the mains but I'm going to move on.
Comments: This string is very lively, very good ball pocketing and grip! Great kick! Go for your shots with this string and you will be rewarded! Very good control too. I found it to be more than Babolat Hybrid with gut! Top notch string for sure!
Comments: I strung up my racket with Volkl V-fuse 17 yesterday. I actually used Boris Becker champion's choice Gut on the crosses because I had an unused half set lying around. The gut that came with this package was still secured with the cinch tie, so I thought it'd be easier to use the already unwound natural gut. I highly doubt that this would change the characteristics because Volkl is the parent company of Boris Becker brand rackets and strings. So, I believe Volkl Natural Gut equals Boris Becker Natural Gut. Anyways, I strung the poly on the mains and gut crosses. after about ten minutes, it appeared the gut was fraying. but upon closer inspection, all fraying was superficial and didn't really get worse over the next hour. The poly main felt very soft for a poly, it really pocketed the ball well. Also, the shape of poly did result in quite a bit of increased ball bite and topspin. Durability would be an issue if you are a frequent string breaker. I had significant notching in the poly mains after less than an hour and a half of play. I would be surprised if they lasted me another 20 minutes of solid hitting. (Keep in mind, I usually break 16 gauge synthetic gut in about 2 hours, 17 gauge in about an hour. A good poly will last me about 6-8 hours.) So, durability wise, it's not much better than your average Synthetic Gut. I can't comment on tension maintenance. If you are looking for a sting with a lot of give and topspin potential, or if you've got shoulder and/or elbow problems, this would be a great option.
