    Not a bad price and I like D'Addario but I been buying just strings bulk generic strings for a while and am satisfied and I think they are cheaper than that for a dozen sets worth. And I avoid amazon when possible.

    Just one. Not my favorite. Lately they've sent me what I consider to be less than desirable candy. Did get a tootsie roll though.

    I usually get the same price when the EB’s go on sale. There are a couple of reasons why I don’t do D’Add’s anymore. I don’t like how they put 6 strings in the same bag. And the other reason is that it’s hard for me to tell the ball ends apart some times and when a I have to rob a string, I don’t have a package to put the rest in, singly.

    I like the EB’s because each string is in it’s own paper envelope. I don’t have to be checking colors. And if I have to rob a string. The each are marked and I can use them a spares, and separate them by gauge.

    I bought strings from Amazon ONCE. They sent really old ones.

    Amazon has become my absolute last resource for the stupid stuff I buy. I hate buying from Jeff.

    I have quit spending with them due to the rich man over there getting stingy with the bit o honeys. I have a childhood attachment to that candy so they made a big mistake. And they were cheap with their credit. You should see what my better half has spent on the MF card over the last year since Sweetwater wanted to be stingy across the board.

    I don't get jealous of what other people got and I generally want the best for everyone so they are more inclined stay off my back. He's just costing his company money and success by cutting small corners. Cheap with the bit o honeys. Stingy with the credit line. Not playing hardball with manufacturers who are overpricing their gear i.e no discounts for certain brands. I don't want sweetwaters excuses. Too busy playing with his kiddie toys to care I guess. My sweetwater has turned to pisswater.

    That's not that much cheaper than the usual price for the 10 packs, I don't think.
