New Jargar Strings at Cremona Mondomusica

Edited: September 25, 2022, 8:00 AM · I visited the 2022 Cremona Mondomusica yesterday, and I received for gift two sets of new Jargar strings.
The CEO of Jargar, Mr. Martens, gently explained me characteristics, prices and avalaiblity of the two different sets:
1)the first is called "Evoke" and are even more powerful and easier to play than the Superior strings. The color of sound is more brilliant and focused. The price is little below Superior strings, and will be avalaible in the next year.
2)the second is "Young Talent" and goes to complete the economic line of Jargar strings for student. I think these are interesting because they are built on nylon core, with similar result of a Dominant set, but with less cost. Same for avalaibility.
As soon as possible I'll try them.

2) Young Talent strings: G silver on nylon 4.9 kg, D aluminium on nylon 4.7 kg, A aluminium on nylon 5.7 kg, E steel 8.0 kg

Or in other words, since you say they are meant to be more powerful, brilliant, and focused than the Superiors what exactly are they trying to accomplish here? Maybe their answer to Il Cannone, PIs, and Evah Greens?

I think Superiors, that I use often on my violin, are IMHO a very distinctive product, different from EP, Cannone or PI, so Evokes can be different from others. I'll tell you at next changing strings ;-)
