The other thing of note I found with this string is that it was stretching more than gut while stringing at high tension.
You know, given this string's very low stiffness numbers, and the fact that the stiffness doesn't really increase very much at high tensions - which is very unusual; aside from Zyex, only natural gut is like this - it would seem that stringing tight would be the logical thing to do with this string. But Ashaway recommends dropping tension like with a poly. Doesn't make sense. Given your experience with snapping at high tensions, I wonder if their tension recommendation isn't more to do with that. Maybe Zyex doesn't have the tensile strength to handle high-tensions.
