Do you think there is an issue with paralleling 2 supercap strings of different farad ratings as long as the brand and the voltage is the same and they both have similar self balancing circuitry...?example...joining an 80 farad 14v string
with a 120 farad string of slightly larger caps...but same brand..

That is like asking if you can have two different brand light bulbs in a lamp that has two sockets. Brand does not matter at all. You can parallel any capacitors you want. The new capacitance will be the sum of the two. The new voltage rating will be the lowest of the two.
