    I have to admit that I drilled a string hole into my Da/O sarado:oops:

    Used it for a month or two without, but I just prefer the offset ozora style hole for pull ups etc.

    I honestly didn’t know there were different string hole positions other than the wormhole until I got my Krom 8yr Bday for Xmas this year and I noticed that the string hole was way offset. Guess I’ve noticed string holes being offset since then but nothing is as noticeable as in the 8yr..

    I recently got a DAO without the stringhole and my pull ups feel a little less consistent, it's a super honed setup but I also thought about drilling a hole :p is it better now you drilled it?

    Yes my pull ups are back to normal now. I recently got the new LTE shape and again drilled a sarado string hole. If you haven't got the LTE shape I can highly recommend it. Surpasses their first shape, and that's saying a lot!

    Earlier this week I shipped out a handturned Terra ken that had no string holes at all! Special request from a customer that mainly plays stringless
