    babolat vs touch is a tennis string i don't think a 16-18 guage tennis string will even fit in the holes of a badminton racket.

    They do have badminton strings. Check up before answering.

    The life of a natural gut depends on how hard you hit, the climate and they require some kind of oil to prevent moving about and when you hands are wet you must not touch the string. They require alot of care. These are the factors prolonging the life of your natural gut.

    VS touch is a very expensive but very good string, you need the gauge that is in the middle of the range of the three for badminton.

    One is too thick and the other too thin as it will snap as soon as it is tensioned.

    Gut generally does not snap but does fray so the string goes fluffy after use with strands peeling off as soon as it is strung even without playing.

    At tensions of 21-23 you will be ok but I don't think it takes tensions of over 25 very well.

    However puting oil on it is not a good idea and the string should be left the way it is.


    please read this and also do a search:

    sorry, my bad, i knew there was natural gut for badminton but i didn't know babolat makes it, it's because i play tennis quite a bit too and when i heard babolat i immediately think about tennis. And i don't think i've ever seen a babolat vs touch, or for that matter any natural guy strings in western canada.
