I’ve been yoyoing for about 5 months now and Ive never really known what string to use, I asked on a few forums for advice, and the consensus seemed to be 100% poly highlights and to stay clear of cotton. So I did. I’ve been playing with highlights for a while now and to be honest i didnt really rate them! they seemed to tense up to quick and I didn’t really like the feel! So i thought what string should i use (there’s just so may types) whilst looking through all the different strings on the uk site i get my stuff from (www.yoyoz.co.uk) i spotted a Brazilian sample pack, it has a few of the brazilian strings they stock Angle hair, Mondos and ying-yangs) perfect! ORDERD! POSTED! ARIVES! (one happy olitizzle)
Basically what I’m trying to say is that I’m going to do a review for each of the stings i got over the coming weeks! lol ill play with one type for a week write the review on this thread! happy days!
Right…lets get this show on the road!
i opened the pack spread them out closed my eyes and picked!..Angel hair! your up!
Description (from www.yoyoz.co.uk)
Angel Hair strings are hand made in brazil from 100% polyamide they are definitely different from polyester they are stiff when new but they soften with use these strings hold a loop really well and last a long time much longer than any of our other strings
at the moment they are available in White or Fire which are 2 shades of orange in each pack of 10 angel hair are thinner and longer than our other strings.
The yoyoz sell them in white and fire (2 shades of orange). Personally i don’t like white strings, i mean they look nice when you first get them. kind of the classic yoyo string, but after 10 mins play its starts looking browny grey! not good! However these strings have a kind of shines to them. (guess thats why they call them angle hair) Anyway for white strings i like them!
Upon 1st feel they are feel smooth yet abit harsh at the sametime! sound stupid but let me explain! they feel smooth but feel like they gunna give you a burn if you play to fast, and at 1st my theory seemed to be true, upon fast play they did burn abit. However after about 15 mins they brak in and no more burn.
Like i said at 1st i thought the burn problem was going to ruin them but when they break in they are perfect. Nice a thin so you can get plenty of layers in with out slowing the yo down. I was expecting slack binds as they are thin but they bind nice and tight no bit loops to be seen. Slacks and suicides are a breeze the loops stay open, nice and big. They also seem to hold tension really well not twisting up for ages! i got a good 20 mins of play before I felt I needed to adjust the tension! (AWESOME!!)
IM IN LOVE WITH A STRING!!! (the girlfriend aint impressed! lol) apart from my negativity about white string they strings seem to tick all my boxes! if i can get them in a different colour then I’m happy! I think the other strings have a challenge ahead!
rating out of 10… 8.5/10
hope you like the review! I’ll write the next review next week! i think its gunna be mondos!
