    I figured it out when I tried saying it :) I like these strings - just got it in the AG100 and it plays great. It's a bit more expensive than I would like though.

    Yeah I may start using this string more often now if it keeps the same level of comfort and playability. How is the tension loss with this string?

    ^^ It maintains the tension really good, the problem is the drop on tension is not gradually, suddenly and out of nowhere you shots are hitting the back fence.
