In my search for Seaguar Premier 90lb strength which they discontinued years ago, I found Seaguar 90lb Manyu 100% Fluorocarbon at a good price. It was ordered from Croatia on the bay item number 152641144406, diameter .84mm. So far my impressions are quite good. It seems slightly more slick, less stiff and has less volume and tension than the 100lb .91mm. It is also warm, and the intonation is excellent all along the length. For guitars that have a resonance around g, this string seems like it might be just the thing to tame the resonance and bring the volume of the set into balance while also dropping some tension. The packaging says it is made in Japan and assembled in China.
Has anyone else tried this string? Is this a new product, or merely a rebranding of an existing product for a different market?
I've only tried it on one guitar so far so it's a bit early to tell how much I'll like it.
