    This was very informative. It's nice to see new strings, especially from Worth.

    Your demo is very well done here

    Thanks for the video Jim.

    Thanks Joe. It's impossible for a player to tell (me anyway) if these really are a different formulation or just different gauges from their regular catalog. They feel like standard flourocarbon to me. Thickness was the same or maybe a tad thinner than the Southcoast mediums that came off, but those were the "soft" variety so maybe these are a "harder" variety to give the intended higher tension. I personally wouldn't want to wind these up to C tuning as they were designed for, but I'm sure others would love that.

    Thanks Jim. I'll admit to some nervousness as you bought them based off my review - glad you ended up liking them! That uke is a beaut.

    It was a bit hard of a gamble as even the creator admitted not trying what I was suggesting.
    But hey, they're still Worth clears so I figured they'd be good somewhere even if my target didn't work.
