Best material? (Question)


(Ethan Ryan L. Valondo) #1

Which type of Nylon is supposedly “best” for yoyo strings?
Same question for polyester and cotton.

Many people heavily prefer wooly nylon (YLI) for their strings due to it’s bounciness, and the new “standard” for polyester strings is any trilobal poly (superiorthreads) because of how much longer it lasts compared to the old “overlocker” style of poly.

And then nobody uses cotton anymore. It just kind of explodes after a few throws :joy:
