This is very cool. I imagine you could measure and drill the holes before, then cut them into separate pieces. Seems odd to me that you notice a tension difference for the right hand. Would much rather have these than the plastic ones available commercially.
I notice the same increase in the tension feel for the right hand with the Diamond String Ties. Perhaps the more direct connection to the back of the tie block (less spring from the loop holding the string before it enters the tie block hole) plays a role in this. As well there is a slight increase in the break angle with no loop around the string and this may slightly increase the downward pull on the saddle. I do not notice any change in the tone of the guitar, just a change in the action feel.
The breaking angle makes the big difference IMHO. In this case the flamenca had a quite little breaking angle (counted against the straight line)
and that led to a certain instabilty in sound - that is completely gone. So yes, there is mainly the difference in feel, but also, in this case, in sond as well... Improved!
