Guitar strings review 

Probably partly covered in detail in subform etc. To add to that I would like to [over time] record my experiences with various strings. To start with

Aquila - Sugar - Classical Guitar [bs 2/2019] - Extra High Tension

Simple none air tight sleeve. All strings coiled in one bundle without identification on individual strings

First impression:
Nice red color of bases. The G strings seems very thick. Very stable sound. Small echo. Could not string the high E. It kept snapping 3 times at the bridge. Even after trying to tighten it really slowly, could not get past d#. Luckily I had a d'adario left.

Louder strings, make a responsive, hard and popping sound.
The trebles have a anoying quitsching sound when my finger runs over it.

Thick and hard tension which make them more harder to play

Used guitar: Yulong Guo Flamenca

RE: Guitar strings review (in reply to Schieper

Hello and Merry Christmas! Thank you for sharing the sugar strings experience. I have a normal tension pack on the way from strings by mail so I can test too.

It is true that tension described on the number details is very high. Not so sure if I am going to keep them more than a day.

Just wanted to ask what tension you got, as there are different ones as normal, superior and extra (which says is for flamenco but I wouldn't dare using such a high string tension, I wouldn't like to cause any stress on the absolutely excellent flamenco guitar I have).
