The calls appear to affect the bells in the same way that grandsire calls do, so a composition of grandsire should come round exactly the same. Only consideration has to be if it runs false, so have you tried just putting a few standard grandsire compositions through a proving program with the altered calls? I presume many will run false, but I would have thought at least some would remain true for a quarter length.

What will this be sent up as? Am I right in thinking the concept of variations is unique to doubles (under cc rules)? So this would nominally have to be called grandsire. Of course, as a quarter, the cc's opinion of it is entirely academic.
