Still at $6.00 a set..worth the effort to try both. Since I string my own.. and like to do a hybrid with syn gut, a string job is appox $4.00. Well worth the effort for a string that works for me.

Thanks again..

Good to know. I think I'll pass on the 17g version in the future then. I edited the Mantis post just for a brief discussion of how easy to string it was.
