Why we carry this string: The tightly wound microfibers deliver a natural gut like feel and control without the high cost of gut. In a 2013 USRSA blind play test "... Quasi-Gut Armor received the 2nd highest rating for Comfort ... the only string that bettered it is Natural Gut." It placed 3rd in Touch & Feel, 9th in Playability, and 10th in Power, out of 175 strings the USRSA has tested.

High marks in all areas. Very little string movement. More control than power, but not underpowered. Tension maintenance is impressive. This impressive range of above average features should satisfy a wide range of playing styles. From: 4.5 Male
This string somehow provides it all, from touch and feel to control, spin and durability. No visible signs of wear after many hours of playing. It gives me confidence on full swings because I know the spin will bring the ball down. From 5.0 Male
The feel was definitely on the soft side, while power is certainly easy to come by. From a control standpoint, I was actually pleasantly surprised at the amount of spin I could put on the ball. It’s certainly no poly, but there was still enough jump on the ball to get above my opponent’s shoulders. From: Jon
