Default Gamma syn gut vs syn gut with Wearguard

I goofed this week and bought a reel of Gamma syn gut. Plain. No Wearguard. I don't want the hassle of shipping it back, really.

I have always loved their gut with Wearguard, so can anyone tell me if the feel and action of the two strings will be different. I have my own machine, and enjoy stringing, and I never break a string, so restringing is not a pain to me. And the Wearguard is probably not needed from a "guarding from wear" perspective. I just want to know if they would be the same string in a blind test.

I've strung for years with gamma syn gut 16 plain for the hard hitters, but last month I ordered with wearguard by mistake and had to send it back because my clients thought it was too soft. I also use the plain as crosses for hybrid stringing and it works as well as a poly. Bottom line, wearguard is softer.

Thanks for chiming in! I'm well into the reel and liking it just fine. I like it for different reasons at different stages of its life. I am out about 10 hours a week, with a mix of pretty intense hitting for fun alternating with playing sets with long points. I end up restringing after about a month. Nice control early on, then a real pocket feel after about three weeks, and soon after the need to adjust strings gets too frequent, so I may restring a little soon.

Good luck, and happy hitting!!

Before "wearguard" players I strung this for like it best just before it popped.
I find it to be great mixed with a poly, either way.
May you allways hit em in the center of the string bed, just inside the line.

And to get philosophical, I just finished a spell where I hit only with my Co-poly strung racquet for three weeks, heavy playing, and then three with they syn gut racquet (same model. And the bottom line is, they are both great, when you are totally in tune with each particular string. Different, but very reliable "servants!"

Happy hitting.
