Supple string -- very nice to play on -- lots of nice overtones. I have a heavy on a transitional violin and a heavy plus on a baroque violin. I have been experimenting a fair bit the last six months or so -- a lot of the sound and playability of the strings depends on the overall balance of the four strings and the bow (plus of course the underlying set-up of the violin). If a string is not working for you it may be because of the weight of another string. Pitch matters as well -- 415 to 430 to 440 matters quite a bit to the resonance and feel of a string.
