Doesn't color-paint change the string's coating?

    For example, Pro Supex Big Ace comes in white and in red as well. Let's say the white version is not a paint on the string, but the string's natural color. Wouldn't the white-one have different characteristics than the red-one which surely is painted and has altered surface because of the paint?

    idk because i think on a mulecular level its the same stuff, just they put dye in it, that would be my guess, i would think stencil ink would change a strings properties more than its actul color, anybody have any info on that?....

    if its RED all the way thru, that would change its play characteristics. Same for Blue, Silver, whatever... If its just a coating and it wears off, then its just for looks and doesn't affect anything.

    It's not painted, it's uniformly red.
