    Hey :)

    Has anyone tried boiling Elixir Strings? Does it work, or does it just damage whatever is left of the coating?

    Thanks:)

    I haven't tried it but guess it would accelerate the disappearance of the coating. Since they're probably fatigued from having been on longer than non-coated strings, its probably not worth boiling them.

    Perhaps you should get a new set of strings anyway, but try boiling the elixirs anyway to find out?
