    This is a great string. I truly enjoy it. Heres why I took it off:

    The string worried me intonation wise. It was very solid but my brain was always thinking "is it out of tune?" In reality I would tune it at the beginning of the set. Not worth stressing for me.

    It didn't quite match the Evah Weich I had it with. Pizz it was beautiful but left something to be desired Arco.

    I would do $60. There are no breaks in the winding at the moment, but a small "bend" where it went over the bridge. Will trade for Plain gut D/G or a set of Spirocores.

    It didn't fit with the Evahs. I had to alter my technique slightly when on it. The weich g feels great again.
