@CerebralGasket @mudface & others: I'm about to to top wrap one of my standard separate two piece stop bar/bridge gits. Not an apples to apples thing with your one piece, but wondering if the question still applies. Do you have an opinion on the old thing of running the strings through the ball cut off an old string to change where the bend in the string happens?
I do run an extra ball when I top-wrap. I too am curious about the 1-piece, are they wider to keep the string wraps in the bore?

Epi Jr; I have to do it, or the pointy end of the string wrap is RIGHT THERE against the tender side-flesh of my hand.

But even with separate bridge I'd do it, so's them sharp ends aren't flailing about.
Or bump my tender hand on them.

I love those comical memes that have the red circle on the OBVIOUS goof.

Nope.... the wrap tail are not any wider...here are some close ups of mine. Like I said .... I don’t have any issue with the Ernie Ball strings.

My hands are kinda rough though... don’t even know when I bang them up or bleed.... too much construction and car building has taken a toll.

My hands are like a baby's ear lobe.


Hahaha!
Not really, I just thought that sounded funny.
But they're pretty soft.
Hahaha!

I wrench on a car... oh gawd... never mind the band-aids, gimmee a roll of paper towels.

Pop, we got another one; grand-niece Josie.
My brother-in-law saw her play and says she got two hits, played multiple positions and is a hustler.
Said she's not posing, that's her stance.

Nice field, holy moly; I never played on a surface quite like that, sheesh.
