    Excuse the naive question, but do not strings without silk wraps (rounds or flats) damage the surface of the tuning posts after repeated use?

    Thanks - and a happy new year to all!

    Anything can scratch or damage your tuning posts. Your skin can wear the the finish.

    Even with the silks it can scratch the posts... but without silks it scratches easier.

    Sure, thanks.

    I was just wondering whether the scratching of the no-silks is considerably more.

    Had the D'Addario EXL170BT in mind.

    If you consider that the string wraps around the post and doesn't move after that, I think that any movement is non existent, and wear is negligible.
