I honestly have no clue… I received it this way in a trade. It doesn’t affect smoothness or play as far as I can tell. The bearing still fits snug too - not too loose, not too tight.
(Brace yourselves; string “car talk” ensuing)
I absolutely could not acquire a feel for cloud string (too springy); just not my cup of tea.
But I have used thinner poly with the Quail - which definitely gave a more favorable performance.
After quickly discovering that thick strings were not practical with the Quail, I used a white ZipLine Paul Harness Rhapsody I had in my collection of random strings; which worked great!
After that one wore out - I spun up some of my “normal” thickness poly strings, but I reduced them more than normal which resulted in a denser, tighter, and thinner string. I’ve been fairly pleased with the performance of this recipe paired with the Quail so far. But…
I’d like to try reducing the number of wraps in my base recipe by 0.5 - 1.0 and maintain my standard reduction percentage to see if it will yield a satisfactory result.
