probably due to the texture and it's more difficult to string than round strings

The simple answer is: String it and you will find out. It is a bear.

Handles like rawhide that has been dipped in glue and allowed to dry.

Did it twice... it is indeed a bear. I did both times on a POG O/S and it was a pain... give it a shot on a 18 x 20 93 sq inch... now that would be fun!

Hence why they have the fpp program to give away free stuff for stringers stringing with GAMMA - 30,000 points gets you a stringer - that's only 3000 sets of their most popular strings...


but yeah they're not fun to string with in general...

You can get a nice crank for 14K :)

Because it is a royal pain to string. The worst.

Yep. When I was in the early stages of learning how to string, I strung up some poly, and I said to myself "no way any synthetic/nylon based string is harder to weave than this..."


How naive I was... :)
