I don't see how that can be any better than simply leaving the ball ends on and stringing it that way

They have hooks on the end for easy install on a floyd, without having to clip the ball ends off.

Cutting the ball end off takes 2 seconds, why would I buy special strings to avoid that?

The only thing thats a pain about a floyd is changing tunings and setting the intonation. They have special tools and attachments that, but they aren't too cheap and still more of a pain than hardtails.

OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!Come on people you actually resist something like this? I like the idea my self.IT saves having to lug a pair of dikes around. But, I understand if you ludites have your panties in a wad by anything that is different. We are talking about electric guitar and god forbid anyone stray off the path set down over 60 years ago by a bunch of dead guys.

Why not keep the balls on there and put the strings through backwards starting at the tuners...?

the thing that held me personally back from doing that would be for the lower string, the un wound end would go into the guitar and i didnt want that

Yeah, I don't really get it. Restring it is easy. Tuning is the pain. But even then, it's not really a pain, just takes a few minutes longer.

Im from texas... T_T


Seriously I wouldnt buy special strings either since it really does only take a second to clip off the ball ends but it is a nice idea. But I am also one of those people who carries a tool bag with me where ever I take my guitar for on the spot adjustments and repairs. Either way when you restring a guitar you still need to clip off excess string anyways.

Are you really so impressed by string with a hook instead of a ball? 'I could understand having a set of these as back-up to keep in your case/gig bag, but that's really no less of a burden than carrying a small pair of wire cutters. I would never limit myself to one brand just because I'm so inconvenienced by snipping off the ball end. And you need cutters anyway unless you like having the strings hanging out of the tuning pegs, chattering together and scratching your guitar.

I understand a fear of change is regressive, but embracing something just because it's new is just ignorant, and insulting people that don't embrace it is uncalled for.

Ya know, you wouldn't have this problem if there were no floyds. (flameshield active)

So.....I think I can laugh at you guys taking half an hour to change strings (flameshield still active)

Do not read more into what I typed then the words you read. I am not in the least bit impressed by any set of strings. I was mocking the morons that will say it has been like xyz for so many years why change now. Too bad humor seems to escape people in this serious business of guitars. You call people ignorant( you need to learn the definition of the word)then say insulting people is uncalled for in the same sentence?

I know the definition of the word ignorant and I used it in the correct context. Your post was still ridiculous and ignorant, even after your explanation. And I don't one person said they don't like them without any logical explanation, everyone one else presented a logical argument as too why they don't need strings with a hook instead of a ball.

It sounds too me like you let your baggage and prejudice cloud your judgement and that is why you failed to read and correctly interpret any of the arguments against these new strings.

gtfo out, you contribute nothing of any value to anyone.
