    That's right, you heard me. This was alluded to here in the past, but I got the story from @drurb: He supplied Presto with some vintage Lycon strings from his collection so that they could examine and recreate them. The result is their most recent line of strings: Prestoflex.

    @drurb never tried them as he now prefers his Spirocore mediums, but the question remains, who has tried them? How are they? Has anyone compared them to actual Lycons?

    Inquiring minds want to know! @Sam Dingle wants to know!

    Here's a video of these strings being played both arco and pizz:

  3. If somebody sends me a set I could compare the G to the NOS Lycon G I just rehomed.

    For those of us newbies here, would someone please be able to tell us about the previous generation Lycon strings and their qualities?

    The Prestoflex do seem quite appealing, and I thought about going for them at my last string change. But then every string experimentation so far has led me back to Spiros, which are at least a known quantity!
