    Hi Mimmo, congrats on your new product.
    Can you tell me if the diameter is any different from your Aquila whites and Lavas?

    Hi Guys...
    Frigilana sorry, I have not well understand your question (my english maybe).
    Gauges, tensions etc etc: this new material was discovered one year ago here in Italy ( strange... Lol) and came from the sugar cane. the density is same of Nylgut so the gauges and the tensions are exactly those of the traditional New Nylgut/Supernylgut sets. There are however a few differences: this product is less stretchly than Nylgut. The sound is really incredible I never heard a such kind of sound. Ever. But I say that not because I want to sell a lot of strings (however honestly I hope that); I say that because I am still suprised. Very surprise guys. You can ask here in the forum to those fews that had the chance to try the first samples. Actually I have not understand why this material is so performant having the same density of Nylgut. Normally the rule is: denser the material brighter the sound. Here the density is not those of Fluorocarbon so what the heck happen? Mystery...
