Default Bridge beads?!?

I also like them. I have had one experience that I will share. I used them on an Emerald X7 nylon. I was putting on Aquila Rubino strings. As i understand it, these strings initially had a breakage issue until the formulation was adjusted. Using the beads all the strings went on as expected except the high E string. It broke at the bead twice. I put it on without the bead and had no further breakage issues. I haven’t had this problem with other strings on other guitars.
Not sure of the significance but thought I’d share the experience.
