Thats actually a good way to look at it.
I would be one of those who probably plays with a poly too long.
As soon as I note that the mains are out of place, I dont like the stringbed, but have tended to use it a few more times "just because". I know its not good for the arm and this 99S may be like an "accountability partner"......LOL. It wont let me use dead poly as it can never get that old!
