You guys are much too serious if you let a straight line like that go by for so long.
Are comments like this necessary?

No.... nor are they desired.

Thanks to everyone for some great ideas on this subject.

jfgesquire..I have used Seaguar 80lb test for a G string, 60lb for a B and 50lb for a high E on 3 different guitars. The strings seem to intonate on all three about as well as any good nylon strings on the same guitars. The saddles are not specially intonated.

Knobloch Actives Carbon are my overall favorite G string. Strings by Mail sells individual strings for $4. A similar sound, but narrower diameter and less expensive per string is Seaguar Premium Fluorocarbon 80 lb test fishing leader.
But you have to spring for at least a 25 yard spool to get it.
I'm a big fan of the Knoblochs as well. I liked the trebles in Aquila Rubinos too, though I remember them breaking frequently.
