    It won't be out until September but if you look in this section you can find (scarce) reviews about it's predecessor, the CBG100. Both are not actually natural gut but I guess are attempting to replicate the feeling or something. Babolat does have actual natural gut which has also been "reviewed" here iirc ...
    In any case I believe the comments about CBG100 weren't exactly positive, in particular given the price.

    Pretty sure my rackets were always restrung with natural gut when I just started, way back, and of course we started with nylon. Perhaps it makes a better combo ... but still for Cyber Natural, (probably) not worth the price since it will only come out in Japan at Japanese prices ;).

    i guess everything is still speculations right now regarding cyber natural 200 since it's really really new. i'm just hoping that it would be something different in terms of feel and even sound and not too similar to all the other strings. i was hoping that there would some new strings like tennis where more and more people are using polyester strings.

    Well, Winston is once again being generous - a set of CN200 is on its way to me for testing. Impressions and review to follow.

    The only thing I can read from that chart is that the last one is control. The rest could probably be figured out by someone who can read Chinese.

    Well, it'll be power, control, feeling, durability, and sound... in whatever order. Power is normally at the top.

    Do they import JP ones? Not very likely it will come out in other forms/ for other markets ...

    Well, here it is. Very interesting, and I haven't even opened it yet.

    Has a strange translucency, looking like (I'm sorry to say) cheapo synthetic gut tennis string. I've taken a picture of the back of the packet as well, and the cross section is very unusual - never seen a baddy string like this before. Seven counter-wound multifilament cores?

    I'll get my tournament out of the way, then test it... maybe on my incoming prototypes...
