Seafood isn't the main attraction of this thread, mind you.

If it was, the thread wouldn't have gone past 10 pages, let alone into part 3.
Not seafood then what? Char siew bao? Siu mai? Dua bao? Abalone porridge?

Knn, chiu can buy BMW 7 series but cannot afford gut??

Chiu arm is made of iron is it?
How many hours does your gut last?

Don't forget Singapore climate is hot and humid and natural gut isn't ideal for us. It loses tension easily in these parts as well as its other supposed superior properties. In short, a waste of money and effort. If you say it's for "feel," may I remind you that you're using a Pure Drive and any "feel" (perceived or otherwise) derived from natural gut is immediately nullified by the Pure Drive's stiffness rating.

Also, I don't like hybrids. I would go syn gut and poly but I don't really like the hours of experimentation and tweaking that comes with it (and other hybrids). Reason being poly tension should usually be much much lower than synthetic/natural gut or multifil.

So when you cross two strings of such disparate properties, you have to do a lot of tweaking before you find the best marriage. I am not a pro and don't have the time LOL

Synthetic gut with synthetic gut or poly and poly is much more predictable and easier to adapt to. Just to enjoy with peace of mind.

As for the iron arm part, I don't see how this would affect your arm unless the technique is wrong? The modern FH, for eg, uses very little of the arm... There is hardly any arm at all. It's just, turn and face your nipples to the side, drop your arm and the racket straight down (no take back), turn and face your nipples to the net, with your arm and racket lagging behind and rip into the ball. Practically no effort at all. It's all in the knees and the hips. That's how chicks these days with skinny arms and stick thin bodies can hit forehands that will blow Steffi Graf off the court if they met today.

People who use poly do not string it to 68 pounds...especially in stiff modern rackets.. they use half of that or even less. I used an APD with full poly strung to 32M 28X and it felt beautiful. You know why in the old days, people could use 70 pound tensions and get away with it? Yup it's the racket flex. The old school rackets were a lot more flexible and polys did not exist those days. If you string to 60 or 70 in your Pure Drive, you're gonna get killed.

You're already using a Pure Drive, one of the stiffest frames on the market even today, together with the modern high RA-rated Head and Wilson sticks.

Putting natural gut in it, I wonder if:
1. you can even feel the gut
2. what can the natural gut do better (spin, etc) that poly cannot
