Biggrob10’s “It’s just a string” review
Ok, so I’ve kind of slacked on this review but I have finely found the time to wright this out (Sorry for the delay Rob) Rob and I recently did some business, he bought one of my modded FHZ’s and with his payment he sent me a few of his new strings. One pack of 100% Poly Thin, one pack of 100% Poly Thick, and one pack of 50/50 Poly-Nylon. At first glance they looked awesome. Nice bright colors and what looked like a nice tight spin on the string itself. Rob also left the string w/o a slipknot on the end and made them nice and long for the taller guys/gals.
100% Poly Thin: What can I say, I loved it. Perfect for 1A and/or 5A. This string held its own with every whip, slack, and suicide I through at it. It also held its tension very well. All around a great string.
100% Poly Thick: As far as play, it played just like the Thin but do to the fact that I play A LOT of small gaped and A-sized bearing yoyo’s it caused them to play a little on the grabby side. So for me this wasn’t as great as the Thin, but still held its own. What I did love this string for was 4A. It made playing larger gaped 4A throws a breeze.
50/50 Poly-Nylon: Ok, this part, is 100% my opinion and should not be taken as fact…I’m not a fan of ANY Nylon based or blended string. It had a feel like a soft Alchemy String and that is one string that doesn’t play nice with me. The string is very soft, whips/slacks nice, and holds tension just like the others. Its just not the string for me.
As a whole, these are all very well made strings and would suggest giving them all a try. Also, the longevity of these strings are AMAZING!!! I tested every one of these string with yoyo’s I know are known for eating string and they held up for a good week, if not longer…and as seen below, the packets the string came in were pretty rad too.
