ATP V5+ Natural Gut
This high-end natural gut is great for players of all levels, from beginners to the top professional ATP touring pros. Manufactured by precision custom machinery helps remove all impurities and creates a smooth, clear, well coated texture that is consistent throughout. Our process also prevents fraying and is more durable and reliable than most other top of the line natural guts, resulting in a string bed that can generate extraordinary power while being soft enough for maximum feel and perfect comfort on the arm. Many players often choose to use a full bed of V5+ natural gut for optimal comfort. The V5(+) is also easy to string and holds it's tension 3-5lbs better than any synthetic string. We highly recommend using this string as a hybrid with a synthetic string or a poly, (we recommend stringing the gut 1-5lbs looser than the Poly). You have the option of 16 gauge for more durability or 17 gauge for even more feel. Our 16 gauge is so durable that we felt a 15 gauge option simply wasn't necessary. Overall, the V5(+) should exceed your expectations of what natural gut can do for your game, all while saving you money. Similar string retails for $40-$50+. We hope you enjoy this world-class string.
V5(+) Versus V5 String Life and Storage Expectancy
V5(+) is okay to store at room temperature for up to a year or longer. It has a dynamic weather resilient coating. The V5 string has a much thinner coating and is not as tightly wound and molded as the V5(+) to create different playability and feel characteristics and should be used within 3-5 months.
V5(+) can be strung up to 70+lbs if necessary. Though, again please keep in mind that all natural gut for most players (not all), generally performs superior below these tensions and 45-55lbs ideal. When you add too much tension to natural gut you start to lose those great "feel" and "endless power"characteristics of natural gut. Again, this is the case for most people, but not all. The V5(+) will cater to all string tension requirements desired by all players. Yes. It is that good!
