I know this is off topic you sound like a person knowledgeable in strings? :D
I was trying to buy different brands of strings to test out and i come by these Martin strings. Question is, what is the difference between these crystal nylon and fluorocarbon strings?

If you'd like to get answers to this question from the community, it would make more sense for you to start a new thread in which you ask this question. And, for what it's worth, going off topic sometimes results in the hijacking of a thread (however unintentionally), which is unfair to the original poster.

Oath Keeper? Ditto...USN-USANG. With the new ukuleles I sell, if they do not have Aquila strings, I pull 'em and replace 'em. Have you got a particular size in mind? sop-con-ten-bar ?

I found three sets, and they will be sent today. You might look into using fluorocarbon fishing line if you have to do a lot of ukes. There have been some threads here on fishing line recipes for uke strings.
