I understand WHY wax would help maintain the natural gut, I'm just curious/surprised that it is allowed to be applied AFTER it is strung. Again, not trying to be a jerk, just wondering.
As far as I am aware, the rule is anything placed or woven into the stringbed above the bottom cross is illegal. I presume that stringsavers are therefore excluded from this rule. Spraying things on strings is nothing new or unusual. It's when things are placed into the stringbed that comments are raised.
