Installing Black Code 4S was actually a lot less trouble than expected. Typically geometric or textured polys can be a bear for the fingers but 4S wasn't terribly onerous even though the edges were definitely noticeable. Coil memory seemed typical for a polyester but with a little care tangles and kinks were easily avoided. As with most geometric or textured polys installing crosses comes with some risk of damage due to the sharp edges. I didn't have any issues but I'd still encourage other stringers to take their time installing crosses—especially if they're blending Black Code 4S with another softer string.
Extra dampeners (if you use them): Once again this is for players that use vibration dampeners. If you make off-center contact they can come flying out pretty easily - it happens all the time. And those of you that have had that happen to you you know they can go bouncing off in any which way and you may not be able to find it. It's always good to have a spare one or two in the bag so you don't have to be worried about it if you can't find your lost or broken one.
