: I have two "old" never used Eudoxa gut/chrome strings. Is the gut in these strings
: dried out and useless after "some" period of time? OR, are they
: "good to go" regardless of age? My hunch is that they are at least
: 5 years old maybe 10 - the package says " made in West Germany".

: Maybe they are "collectable" ? Thanks for any info - Al

They MAY be usable but the chances are very low as gut does have a quite limited shelf life and does dry out.I too have some old gut strings but I only keep them for emergency use as I am fully aware of their limited life. Most shops nowadays don't even stock gut strings because of this and will only get them to order.
