    One positive side effect: when used on worn strings, it shifts the worn out spots of the string and prolongs its potential lifetime :)
  2. But, couldn't you just used non tapered E and B strings for that? Well...not the silk part I guess.

    Willis does say in his book that it helps with the tension, which is a perception at best.

    Very true, it would move the fretworn spots down/up 1/4 or 1/2 of an inch.
