I dont think everyone here understands: Strings break from mis hits. Yes. Soft strings are more stretchy and will not get trapped so much on mis hits the same way a hard stiff string will. Therefore people who break mains quickly AND COMPLAIN THIS IS WHY! The hard stiff poly, Big banger maybe, whatever, has no give and is trapped against the grommet, frame, whatever, and therefore breaks as it cannot stretch as required to avoid this. Sorry most of you know. But it annoys me people saying how come big banger alu power broke after 1hour for example.
