Thing is right, I polished that and it still broke, it’s not just one string, it happens on the high e,b,g and d unfortunately. All the saddle points are as smooth as smooth gets, yet they break. All these make me think it might be a faulty batch, because before I had only crusty d’addarios and I used to abuse the crap out of them and not break. This breakage syndrome only started like 2 months ago. I’ve gone through 3 sets of elixirs.If strings break consistently at the same spot, that spot is where the problem is. There's a burr or sharp angle touching the string at that point. Polish it out.
