Greek stringer: Babolat Syn gut is a polyester kind of string

A Greek stringer claims that Babolat syn gut (Babolat Super Fine Play 16 String) is polyester string that is coated with a substance. It is polyester but not full polyester. Polyester underneath the coating...
Is this true? I can understand that synthetic gut and polyester are synthetic strings but are they both polyester? He means like Babolat Super Fine play is a kind of inferior coated polyester...

it is a synthetic gut string, but it does have a co-poly outer wrap. it is most definitely not a polyester string; this guy is just confused

Thank you, jazar. I knew it but I needed some confirmation to be 100% sure.

Re: Greek stringer: Babolat Syn gut is a polyester kind of string

I got pictures of the Babolat syn gut stringbed.
Please take a look. These strings do not look to me like syn gut. They look like poly but why does it say Babolat syn gut on them?

synthetic gut strings sometimes have a coating on the outside to make them more resilient. this can sometimes make them look a little like polyesters, but they arent

Re: Greek stringer: Babolat Syn gut is a polyester kind of string

I knew that most likely this would not be a Poly since Babolat's poly are 3, HPT, HP and Ballistic...
I feel a bit responsible about my friend because I sent him to the specific stringer.
Thank you, jazar.
