Klip Legend Natural Gut

I don't know about you but I don't use a lot of 18 gauge natural gut until recently, that is!

My suppliers of natural gut, Babolat, and Luxilion don't, as far as I know, offer 18 gauge natural gut...but Klipspringer Pty does! And it is an excellent example of a quality product and at the cost of about $30.00 per set is a good value, I think!

Klip Legend 18 Natural Gut

This client gets about 12 hours of hitting and is very pleased with performance and value of this string.

If you are searching for a nice thin natural gut string, I suggest you pick up a set, or several, and give it a try. It will not be for everyone, but it may very well be the perfect option for one of your clients.

I have added the data to The String Characteristic tab so check it out.
