First time with these strings. Served a basket with it and notice a couple of wear spots on coating on gut. We'll just have to see how durable they are after playing with them. Easy on the arm. Good movement on ball serving.

5 Stars Great String

I also agree that it is a great string for anyone with arm problems and likes to feel of gut without the cost. As a 4.0 senior player, I have been using this string for 2 plus years.

4 Stars great string

I really like this string. coming from a poly this is almost as good and is very easy on my arm and shoulder. I also like the softer feel. I have used the gut in the mains and have used it on the crosses the way they recommend and it definitely plays better with the gut in the crosses. I only give it 4 stars because it is the first gut strings I have used

Used on a Wilson Kfactor Three Racquet with the VS Gut set at 57 pounds and RPM at 55. Play about 4 times a week. Fantastic string. Bites into the ball. Generates loads of power. Easy on the arm and shoulder. The gut lasted longer than I expected. Holds up well.

Excellent string for me - balances durability and spin generation with the softness that helps protect the elbow. Highly recommended!
