Maybe this more properly goes in the marketplace forum? Feel free to point me in the right direction if need be...

That said, I'm vaguely considering plunking down the cash for a bunch of Seaguar line to make strings for all the various ukes and banjos laying around the house. But I'd really like to try them out before I lay out $100+ (or, for that matter, before I drop $16 on a set of Worth Clears for my tenor!)

Is anybody who's already made the investment selling sets made from Seaguar line around here?

Bazmaz has a interesting blog post and video demo about them: http://www.gotaukulele.com/2015/05/something-fishy-fishing-line-as-ukulele.html

The guys at the Banjo Hangout have been talking about them for a while, which got me interested. Then he posted that while I was shopping for Worths and made me rethink my life choices, to be honest!

I have reels of Seaguar and other brands. I could send you a set if you don't mind waiting a wee bit, I'm working in the Middle East at the moment. Send me an email at sven.arkitekt[at]gmail.com. Don't send a pm as I'm shit with those.

Just as a reminder, the Worth strings are double sets so the price is not that bed.

I'll second Sven's offer, but with a twist. I'll send you a set for free if you donate $5 to UU:

I have Seaguar Blue Labels in the following, suitable for a concert scale:
40lb -> G
60lb -> C
50lb -> E
30lb -> A

This is something we do on the Mandolin Cafe. Either free stuff for a donation, or 5-10% proceed of a sale donated to the site. It's easy to forget that these "free" sites cost a lot of time/money to the people who run them, and often not fully offset by advertising/subscription revenue.

For 4 strings in an envelope? $2 max. Not a problem, imo.
