^^LOL, nice disclaimer and I agree, you gotta be careful nowadays with distributors pimping their product.
I love the review and have to agree. I hit today with BM for the first time. I split my time between BM in one stick and SpinX in the other. Both in 16g, the feel was what impressed me, closely followed by the spin and power. These 2 are the first two strings who I feel give PL2 a run for the money for less bucks.
I'm interested in how they hold tension but based on my first experience, they're both great: so far I would give the slight edge to silver SpinX. I played with them at 56/56 in my Radical Pro.
At any point were you approached by a man in a poncho offering peyote?
