Black TUSQ XL is consistent from piece to piece, and within each piece, to offer you harmonically rich tones without the problems associated with natural materials.

Graph Tech Black TUSQ XL Compensated Acoustic Saddle

I generally only write positive reviews. This is my first exception. Don't believe the hype. The example I received of this Over-priced Canadian Graphtech Plastic String Saver Saddle I do hope is the exception to the rule, but I doubt it. I don't challenge the ptfe slipperiness as I can't.
However:
The main problem is it is Bent along it's Length. It is so damn difficult to sand the face to fit the Bridge Slot Thickness. You have to sand both faces to achieve a uniform thickness. By the time you do, you have created a sharper string transition point and have also over-done the sanding, just to remove the curvature.
Just like a lot of products from that continent, they are overpriced and probably spewed out by some Chinese gentleman.
Oh, I forgot to say, I'm not impressed.
PS: This review is not directed to the retailer, who is brilliant, by the way and provides excellent service.
