I started using these about a year ago, and after several sets have overall been very pleased with them. Nylon strings are inherently unstable for tuning, so I was looking to eliminate the knotting of the bridge ends, which can be problematic with the unwound nylon strings sometimes slipping a bit. The one thing I found is that sometimes these ball ends slip off the nylon strings, with a pop that sounds like a string breaking. So I've started applying a small drop of "Crazy Glue" to the ball end, allowing it to dry before installing, and that has solved the problem. Otherwise, very good strings, and a bit more stable for tuning.
