A favorite string that is also an excellent value.
This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

For many years I have been a fan of Gamma synthetic gut. It plays well with a predictable response, good spin and durability; it also grasps the ball for good control. I use the Gamma WearGuard synthetic gut in stiff wide-body racquets for increased durability. New racquets always have an element of surprise when you play with them so stringing with a tried and true string like this for a consistent response is a smart thing to do. I prefer how it plays in the color white. For a racquet with a dense 18 main string pattern, I often use the thinner 17 gauge Gamma synthetic gut. Fine playability and the low price makes this string a wise choice.

Great Playability - Excellent Value!
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I got a set of Gamma Syn. Gut 16g with the X-ST stringer I bought from Midwest Sports. Truth be told, it sat in a drawer for months until I decided to string it in a 14 yr. old Pure Control Team I keep at my in-laws. It sat over there for a year after I strung it before I took it out during a visit. I have to say I was more than pleasantly surprised at its feel and playability; so much so that I brought the racquet back home with me to use more b/c I liked the feel so much. ~50 hrs. of court time later and it's still going strong . For the price, this is a great all around synthetic. Highly recommended if you're looking for a no-nonsense string. This is a great playing string and a tremendous value at this price.

Was having trouble keeping strings in racquet. A friend put me on to these about five years ago. He too, played with a wide body racquet, and the durability of these are great. I have since changed racquets (about one year ago), no longer a wide body, and use these in the new one. Love the feel these strings give for drops, spins, overheads, just all shots. The durability is the best for me.

Excellent feel and control, along with comfort and good spin effect for Spin configured racquets. Used in Hybrid configuration with poly on the mains.

Good string

Good string. Add good spin. But not as durable as I had hoped.
