Fiddly but necessary?

Pros: I haven't had any problems with the adjusrer snapping a string on fitting, but the Eva gold came with a warning of non-liability if this happened, so I thought it a good idea!

Cons: VERY tiny and fiddly to fit. Was I supposed to remove the adjuster completely from the violin? Needed tweezers/fine pliers and approx 20 mins. May be easier next time.

Other: More explanatory fitting leaflet would be good, please, Andrew!

Great

Pros: - Protects loop for longer - My E strings haven't prematurely snapped since using this product - One lasts for months/years

Cons: - Fiddly to apply (excuse the pun)

Other: Even though this product is probably just an optional extra, it is useful to have and 1 has lasted since I bought them months ago and is showing no sign of deterioration

Effective and simple to fit

Pros: My E string loop had been repeatedly breaking and this little gizmo fixed it! There are 6 inserts in the pack. Will save a fortune in Pirastro gold E strings. Was simple to fit and did a good job. No effect on sound purity.

Cons: None

Other: Great advice from String Zone re the product I needed.

Pros: Excellent product. I have several time lost E strings through broken loop, and had tried to coat adjuster with Araldite with limited success. This does the job easily and well.

Cons: None

Pros: Easy to put on, get 8 of them. Only been 1 day so will have to see whether it works! Have had strings snap immediately before and, so far so good!

Cons: Expensive BUT if it stops the loop ended E strings breaking, will be well worth it!
