BTW.. I got some Ashaway Flex 68 (A80)..free of charge for promotion..Are those any good?? Not shure if I should bother to try them out..

Am I the only one who feels embared when explainign to someone you like this string better than the other one because it's (a whopping) 0.01mm thinner...
It feels ridiculus....
That said, I tried MLXL for the first time this week... It's not even that bad...
It'll be nice when I play less (over the summer) to have something that's very durable, and plays like ~80% of what you really like...

since i have string and feel both ashaway mp white and blue (thanks to sire dinkalot), i am pretty sure from tone test that ashaway mp blue is thicker. blue also feel thicker. white is little less durable.

Calipers are not reliable measuring devices for non-hard or rigid surfaces, like strings. Even the more precise micrometer finds it difficult to be very precise because the anvils are not 100% parallel, and the human hand will make it even worse unless you are experienced enough. The narrow calipers jaws are even more difficult to hold the string parallel.

If you're carefull enough only to compress the string as minimal as you can... (compression is inevitable ofcourse) the string will "automatically" line itself up to be parallel...
it's a string, it's flexible, when the jaws are "pressed"(gently offcourse) together it's not that hard to have it parallel...

However, in this case, the difference was 0.008 to 0.01mm.
Difference between say bg65 and bg80 of 0.02 mm is noticable by me too but it could be mostly due to individual filament diameter and usage of vectran in the bg80. In the bg80, cross sectional area is different too, it's more oval while filaments in bg65 is circular.
Of course, difference of 0.05 mm is quite huge.

Anyone with access to a physic lab with laser caliper? If not, caliper used by Sir DinkALot is good enough for me.

certain tolerances: offcourse...
But you're saying those measurements DinkAlot did are unreliable?
Not only is he consistently close in measuring (he did about 25 measurements per stringtype) he is also scarily close to the package-thickness ashaway states...to me, those two provide a pretty good benchmark..
Okay, so he measured ML is consistently 0.6988...
if that's 0.6992mm because he (apparantly veyr consistently) compressed the jaws... Fine with me

Everyone would know that readings like 0.6689 mm from a caliper like the Mituyoyo 500-672 is just too good to be accurate. FYI, this caliper has a resolution of only 0.01mm and an accuracy of only 0.02mm. Measuring something like 0.6689 is punching beyond its weight. Strings are not perfectly round. Strings with finer filaments in the core will be rounder than strings with thicker filaments in the core. Streching them will make them rounder but still not a perfect circle.
