As for SSers, I'm usually a big proponent of them, but the last bunch I put in stiffened up my stringbed and took away too much of the feel. So I'll be cutting it out tonight or tomorrow. What's funny is that I had much more in my last 'brid and it felt fine and got better and better as it aged. Go figure.

Enjoy your new 'brid and let us know how it goes!
I've edited my post since, with additional questions, sorry! And thanks.

So it appears that they do stiffen up the string bed to some degree? Well that's no good.

As for the Mamba Premium Natural Gut goes, I may not be a good reference because I only have Gaucho Classic/Spider Silk to compare to. I haven't used stuff from the big boys brands yet. One thing I will note is that:

Mamba Premium Natural Gut is the most powerful string I have ever used.
