Hey guys, I’ve been wanting to have this discussion for a while.
I can perform Brent stole with about a 75% consistency rate with my performance blend (nylon/poly). I cannot, however, perform Brent Stole with full polyester string with anywhere near the same amount of consistency. With full poly, my rate dips down to maybe 5% success.
I can’t tell if I’m spoiled to the whippieness of nylon, or if there are actually polyester strings that simply cannot whip the way Brent Stole requires.
With this trick in particular, polyester strings feel profoundly different, definitely weak sauce compared to nylon and nylon blends. Nylon just retains and transfers so much of the energy that I put into that little whip.
I wonder if people trying to learn this trick that are using polyester string would actually be able to do it more successfully if they used nylon instead.
Let the civilized discourse begin! What are your thoughts?
