Short: Do Blueprint Strings make your throws more responsive? Is there a known break-in period?
Long: Just purchased some yellow Blueprints and have found them to make my throws much more responsive. Is this a known feature/issue with the strings? I’ve heard good things about them (which is why I bought 'em), but they make my throws much more grabby. My knuckles are mad at me.
To make sure it was the string, I tried a toxic (my go to), a highlights, and a fat nylon kitty string all on he same throw (gnarwhal 2). I also switched out the bearing from a super smooth Buddha ceramic Whipple to a dry CTX. The yo-yo was much more grabby/responsive with the Blueprints (I tried multiple Blueprints) in both setups. Anytime I have multiple layers of string in the gap with he Blueprints it wants to jump up. I’ve never had a string affect the smoothness of my throw so much. Since I’ve never read of this happening with Blueprints before, I’m assuming I somehow got a bad batch (???), or that there is some break-in period I’m unaware of. Not sure I want to put my knuckles through that break-in period if that’s the case.
Anyways, any help on this would be much appreciated. If I wasn’t clear or you need more info, just let me know. Thanks!
