Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Strung on a drop weight machine in two pieces without problems. Played in a hybrid with Pro's Pro Plus Power mains for approx. two hours indoors on clay.
This hybrid provided good offensive playing characteristics. In contrast to Discho TechnoAce NX, the Babolat Synthetic Gut supports the good aspects of the main string much better and provides better tension maintenance and durability. That comes at the cost of a bit of comfort and touch, but that's still tolerable when you look at the overall package. At this price you rarely get a multi at such a good quality. Highly recommendable!

Not a good string for advanced players. A very short durability for main strings, but is a very good option to the crosses for a poly-hybrid string.

Easy to string (two piece). Smooth surface. Easy to tie knots.
Played on hard court and clay court.
The string felt nice from the start. Decent power. When switching to my other frame strung with Signum Pro Outbreak, the first shots almost didn't make it to the other side.
Feels very comfortable, precise and controlled. Somehow crisp and soft at the same time.
Tension stability was extraordinary. Spin potential was also good. But my racquet provides good spin with almost all strings anyway.
One downside was that the strings did not move back into their position after a short time of play. Well that's the case with all non-polys.
Durability is rather poor, but considering the price it's okay.

I usually play polys but wanted to try another Nylon string after I had bad experiences with the last one I had tried.
The string felt surprisingly good despite the 1.30 mm gauge, very comfortable and elastic.
However the positive characteristics decreased significantly after 2-3 hours of play, and the string broke after 3.5 hours. Polys usually last me 4-5 hours before they break or before I cut them out.
Conclusion: Great string for those who string their own racquets, maybe also suitable as a cross string, I might try that.

Compared to Pacific Nyltec 1.35 the Babolat Synthetic Gut is much better. Unfortunately I cannot say anything about the durability of the Nyltec because I had played it less than one hour since I did not like it.
