Nine Plus / 9+ spring?
« on: December 22, 2017, 05:25:52 PM »
Has anyone ever come across a spring like this (below) marked "Nine +"?



I'm inclined to think this is a normal 9 spring or, less likely, a 9.5 spring. I've seen 9 springs marked "9", "nine", and unmarked altogether, but the "+" below the "Nine", here, seems intentional, so I am curious if anyone has come across this before. I haven't seen any posts on this forum indicating so.

I have several springs, none of them are marked like that, just a number. Though some of the numbers are barely legible like they were in a rush!

I wouldn't be too concerned whether it is a 9 or 9.5. In my experience, the number is approximate with each of my springs exhibiting different tension. I tested four 10 springs on one of my guitars. They were all different. I chose the one that felt best for my style.

Thanks for the feedback. I use 10s, so this is now a spare, but I was curious since I’ve never seen one marked this way either. Maybe it’s a reminder from the Parker techs to be “positive” :)
