Topic: When Fishing Meets Guitar
I've sometimes wondered why classical guitar strings are always made of nylon, and why nobody had tried flourocarbon for these reasons:
1) For fishing, flourocarbon has much less stretch than nylon, which should equate to tuning stability.
2) It's also a bit harder, which should transfer to a brighter tone.
3) It also has greater tensile strength, which would reduce string breakage problems.
4) Flourocarbon has almost the same refractive index as water, so it's almost completely invisible to fish. I have no idea what benefit this would be for guitar strings.
Lo and behold, leave it to La Bella to come up with flourocarbon classical guitar strings. I know CG is a big fan of La Bella's, so I'm hoping either he or another Chordian can provide some intel / opinion about them.
