I know there are a lot of places that rush through their string jobs and can be off by 10 pounds or more. I've seen that with my own measurements.

If you're a string breaker, you might want to reconsider putting Hexy in the mains. It's by far the less durable of the two.
Personal feel mainly on RIP. But I do agree that Hexy does lose alot faster. Thanks for the idea on hexy/RIP hybrid. Looking forward to trying it out.
