Ok, so every single stock string I’ve ever used has snapped. It all started with my Duncan metal drifter back in 2013. Yoyo smacked into the floor, but it was fine. Same with my yomega glide and yyf shutter. After these three hit the ground (damage was minimal, thankfully) I decided to not use any stock string that came with a yoyo. Four years later, I find myself with a new sOMEThING Phaser. I bought some SMT type 2 string once and really liked it, so I thought it would be fine to use the string that came with my phaser. After all, it’s not like they have any breakable cotton string they package with their yoyos. So I’m doing some combos and after a solid throw I hear that horribly distinct SNAP sound and feel an undesirable weightlessness on my finger as I watch my Phaser roll (on carpet) into the corner of the room.
I don’t blame the string or the companies that make them. This has never happened when I bought string in bulk like yyr, something, kitty, blueprint, or even the more inexpensive yoyoexpert brand string. Needless to say, I won’t be using anymore stock string for the rest of my life. Walk the dog is a nice trick, but runaway dog is a different story haha. Thank you for reading my story
