I'm curious... Are there any other stringers out there that feel like stringing BB ALU in the crosses is a serious pain in the neck? I don't mind doing it in the mains because there's no weaving but in the X's it's just plain frustrating. It probably doubles my time in weaving the X's. The string has the resiliency of pipe cleaner and whatever coating is used makes it pretty slick as well. I imagine this is an issue with more than just the ALU line of BB strings but ALU is what seems to be the most commonly used BB string lately. Any other stringers share in my frustration as well?
