Are touring pros using natural gut strings?
After using nylon strings for about thirty years, I started using natural gut strings several months ago, and it has been a really positive change for me. In the past, all I ever heard were negative comments about how expensive it is, how quickly it breaks, how dampness damages it, etc. Anyway now, I am definitely going to stay with natural gut since it works so well for me.
But my question to you all is, are touring pros using natural gut? Do any of you have first-hand or reliable second-hand knowledge of whether many pros are using natural gut? Are they stringing the whole racquet in gut or just the mains or crosses, and if so, what other string do they use in combination with gut?
