    interesting design. I don't see any guitar versions yet, but, it seems like there might be something to this. I wonder how easy/well intonation is...

    Might be a non- issue, but the thicker ends before the end ball, I wonder how that might mess with intonation. Must be stiffer than the rest of the string...

    I'm not sure that would affect intonation, but, the floating string design? IDK...

    But, having more of that extra wrap wound more in the playing area might make things stiffer, especially if you are picking in that area.

    I've been using D'addario strings for years and nothing else seems as good, but the colored ball ends look terrible on everything except a rear loader (huh huh, huh huh) where they're hidden from view
