        Is replacing the metal heddles on a Fanny counterbalance loom with  Texsolv heddles a bad idea or a good one? Thanks.

          You should be just fine putting texsolv heddles on a Fanny 🙂

            I was also thinking about replacing my metal heddles with Texsolv on my Mira CB.  Is there an appreciable advantage in doing so?

              It depends what kind of metal heddles you have.  If you have inserted eye heddles, no need to change.  I had wire on my Fanny, and switched to texsolv, and love it. Mine are 11″ (280 mm, surplus from other loom). I put them on just to try, and that size works perfectly.  They slide easily.  I heard complaints of texsolv being hard to move on Leclerc because of metal frames, but a bit longer size solves that.
