Pros: I have been using SF now for well over 50 years, i find their gauge perfect for speed, strings of a heavier gauge are clumsy in comparison, furthermore no other metal string produces the volume or the tone that SF do. And the price is affordable.
Cons: I have not yet found anything to complain of.

Pros: Very underrated strings. Extremely resonant and fail safe, never broken one in 15 years and next to no play in time. Do not suit very bright violins though.
Cons: Do not suit very bright sounding violins.

Pros: Terrific sound across range but I've just had a new bridge fitted so not sure if this vast improvement in sound level and quality is entirely due to strings, but I will buy them again. They settled down quickly and stay in tune. No whistling on the E string either and I have lost the weak D on the A- have I improved that much???
Cons: G string ball took a bit of fitting into adjuster as the covering was a bit thick - it's OK now.
Other: Excellent service from the stringzone - they arrived the next day. Please start selling mandolin strings.

Pros: stay in tune well.
Cons: Just got another set after seeing my review of last lot. It turns out that my last set were actually Spirocore which are great. I find this set of strings a bit shrill on my fiddle, wheras the spirocore have a much more mellow sound which I prefer. I can't wait to replace the strings.
Pros: The first thing i noticed changing from Dominants to Superflexible was an increase in volume on my fiddle,it took around two weeks before they lost the metallic sound and now are sounding very similar to the Dominants but with more punch.Would recommend these strings to anyone who's fiddle needs a bit more volume.
Cons: The E string a bit harsh on my fiddle.
Other: 5 star on my fiddle.
Review of Thomastik Superflexible violin strings
Pros: Great strings! Changed them recently and couldn't believe the difference. They keep their tone for ages. Unlike other makes, the "A" string doesn't unravel at the index finger position. Will purchase again.
Excellent strings at good price!
Pros: Great resonance to these strings. They are lasting well and so far, no signs of the "A" starting to unravelwas recommended these strings by a fellow musician (I play trad Irish). I am very pleased with Superflexible. I have used many different types of Thomastik over my 40 years of fiddle playing!
Cons: None so far!
