so now i am super bummed out. if you can find them, buy them, because they are not shipping anymore out and what is left is what stores have in stock. i tried the nano web ones and they wore out very quickly. i am going to try them again but i also want some other options. has anyone used the dr coated strings and can compare the two? i'm debating the bootzillas, and the black beauties. 1.) do they last as long? 2.) how do they hold up to a pick? 3.) once the coating starts to wear away, is the string still protected?
