    This is intended to collect the various playtest threads into one place. I know I'm missing a few links, so if you don't see your playtest listed in this thread, please respond and provide a link with a description of your thread. If I've listed your thread, please provide a description of what you would like it to say. I was just thinking this might be a good link to provide for those "Help me find a string" threads that pop up all the time.

    Maybe something like "Playtest of all string types". I dunno, I'd rather not try and brand somebody else's writing.

    Great idea, man!

    What about one that Rabbit (I think) did about various guts? Or maybe it was multiple threads...

    Hence why the mean always loses to the median in the presence of outliers. Some fool rated this 1 star, so now it'll never be 5 stars even with my 5 star rating :(

    It's all good. Hopefully a few more people chime in with their playtest threads. Then when we get the "Help me pick a string" threads, this will be a standard link to include.

    Thanks for including me!

    I should be placing an order for more strings soon. Any suggestions/ setups anyone would like me to test?
