Natural Gut Stringing Tips and TechniquesAlbert Murata
Most stringers see synthetic and polyester strings on recreational players’ racquets. So, that’s what you’ll be working with, more often than not. These days, players use natural gut string in a hybrid stringing setup (if they use it at all). Natural gut, however, is an entirely different animal (no pun intended) than synthetic and polyester strings. It requires extra care and attention when stringing a full bed.
I’ll share in this video four tips and techniques when stringing with natural gut. Check out the video below
