    Thanks guys, I've recently demoed An APD GT Plus with 16 ga. RPM and loved how it played. I was thinking of trying the Duralast just for the fun of it...

    No dye used. It was just Duralast with the "Pro Hurricane Nadal" laser etching. A string PJ, if you will.

    Nope, not custom made either, apart from the different name etched on. Just regular old Duralast.
