Obviously, your nemesis does not. To him, they are just tools.
He's gotten used to using ordinary strings until they break.
He would probably resist modern innovations and, moreover, they'd likely damage his game.

I've seen this in other fields, too.
For example: Pete Townsend uses old school, heavy gauge strings that most modern guitarists would find unplayable.
That what his style was built upon and he sticks with it.

Good post, fortun8son.
