Well the stiffness was just putting the strings on . Playing them is nice.
I am very aware that they are different, so my judgement is not accurate. And I am coming from using nails to short nails to no-nails again so I will not be comparing like with like. An interesting test would be to present a blindfolded player with a guitar with xxx strings
What I will say is that the gut sounded beautiful with nails (I think that is how Trepat plays) Now I am in the short nail stage, which is awkward, but also sounds nice. In a day or two I will be brave and return to no-nails. I have been there a few times before , but it it always scary to cut the nails
