Before I begin, let me say that I have yet to actually try fluorocarbon fishing line on an ukulele; this is merely speculation. This is a roughly estimated word problem. Now we just need a guinea pig to actually try the Seaguars!

You have 3 ukuleles:

1 tenor (traditional)

1 tenor (low G)

1 soprano (traditional)

Seaguar FC leaders

100yd 80lb $90

" 60 75

" 50 62

" 40 53

" 30 40

" 25 33

diameter

80lb .810mm/.032" - tenor low G

60 .740mm/.029" - tenor C

50 .660mm/.026" - tenor E, soprano/concert C

40 .620mm/.024" - tenor g, soprano/concert E

30 .520mm/.020" - tenor A, soprano/concert g

25 .435mm/.017" - soprano/concert A

You change all four (4) strings on each ukulele every two (2) months. You have 100 yards for each string per ukelele and use four (4) yards (1 yard per string) every string change. Calculate the total costs of the strings and how long until you run out of string.

4 yards per ukulele x 6 times per year = 24 yards per ukulele per year

400 yards per ukulele / 24 yards per ukulele per year = 16 years and 8 months

Tenor = $230 for 400 yards = 16 years and 8 months

Tenor low G = 280 " "

Soprano = 188 " "

Total = $698 for 1200 yards lasting 16 years and 8 months

You use 4 yards every string change every two (2) months with $9, $8, and $7 string sets for 16 years and 8 months. How much will you spend on string sets for each price?

6 sets a year x $9 per set = $54 per year

$54 x 16 years + ($9 x 4) = $900 for 16 years and 8 months per ukulele

6 sets a year x $8 per set = $48 per year

$48 x 16 years + ($8 x 4) = $800

6 sets a year x $7 per set = $42 per year

$42 x 16 years + ($7 x 4) = $700

Conclusion: If you like the sound of Seaguars, you can have save HUNDREDS. Personal results vary depending on how often you change strings on ukuleles. Many can use less than a yard per string, so, technically, these can last for $20+ years if you don't change them regularly. No matter how often you change strings, the savings are MONUMENTAL!

If you buy $9 ORCAS strings for three (3) ukuleles every two (2) months for 16 years and 8 months, you'd spend $2700 total!

$8 Blackline or Worth strings ($16 for 2 sets)? $2400

$7 Fremont strings? $2100

400 yards per tenor low G ukulele for 3 ukuleles? $840

400 yards per soprano/concert for 3 ukuleles? $564

You can save anywhere from $1260 to $2136 by purchasing Seaguars in 100yd bulk for any three (3) ukulele combination of tenor, tenor (low G), soprano, or concert over a span greater than or equal to 16 years and 8 months!
