Looks like a mistake to me....Never seen the purple string used before either....we are not big on experimenting here so not unusual for me to never have seen it before....still it looks like a mistake.

I've really no comment on it, but maybe it'll have more publicity in the 'string' forum?

I've seen something similar to that purple string before. It's trying to mimic the rubber band/string that used in tennis to reduce the shock. Not sure if it works though.

the purple string is trebling. more usually found on the last cross near the throat rather than the head. some UK stringers put it on the top and bottom crosses.
I don't know, but I doubt if it has any shock absorbing properties.
It will not give any support to the mains either as it will only be at very low tension.
It's purpose is to have a rough side and a smooth side to emulate the toss of a coin. In the picture, the side that is up is rough.

i've seen this practice done with sewing threads before... its usually done in a shape of a box around the sweetspot area, and its designed to hold the strings in place to prevent lateral and up/down shifting of the strings.
a few individuals i know of who play at the winter club down in calgary has a stringer there who does this regularly.

I use it all the time.
Especially for players who often break the main strings as a result of mis-hits near the top of the frame.
A must for uncontrolled hardhitters with high string tensions.
I also use the tubing in another postion.
It appears that some players would want the groove on the outside to extend 2 grommets further down.
If I see that the grommets are worn flat just below the outside groove, I put in a pice of tubing there.
I call them "Fightergrommets" as it is usually spirited figthers who are able to produce that kind of wear.
Otherwise they will have the cross string breaking in that position.
