I'm just wondering what type knots most people use on their strings. I've been using a simple "stopper" knot on most strings except on my Aquilas, the C string comes out too big. I know there is a knot called "ashleys stopper knot " which I think is just a different way to do a stopper knot. My old worn out Style 1 has the slots enlarged and I think I will have to use a bead to hold it in. I know that if the knot is too small it could pull out and damage the bridge. Does anyone use a knot that is different from the stopper knot.?

Figure eight. Figure eights work but tend to look rather ugly and the tail sticks out at an odd angle. But that's before I heard of the stopper knot. Thanks, it looks much nicer.
