I will be review all aspects of crococorey’s string company.
Customer Service- Few people review this but I think it can make or break a business. Corey has been very nice and cordial when answering my questions. He is open to suggestions and truly values the opinions of others. Not snotty or rude in anyway during our correspondences.
Packaging- The strings came in an envelope with a Crocostring sticker on the back. Very basic. He’s just getting started so I he’ll be upgrading sooner or later.
Logo/Branding: I like his logo. Would be cool if each string type had a logo but this is not a necessity.
- Cat tails
- Fat Cat tails
- Fantasy Chords
- Fat Fantasy Chords (new. Will not be featured)
Cat Tails- %100 Polyester. This string will last you ages. These are super slick, really whippy, and lovely for slack. I haven’t had a string tension problem with these. They hold tension pretty well. Beware of Eli hop string burn. It hurts. I think that this is Corey’s second best string.

Fat Cat Tails- Polyester. At first I hated Fat Cats. They took all the best qualities of the OG Cats and made them thicker. It took some adjustment but with time I came to like them. They’re pretty good if you like fat string. It’s just not my style. They are just as slack friendly as the OG Cats.
Marshmallows- A poly nylon mix. They hold tension well. They are of medium thickness. I didn’t care for them. It is on par with normal YYF poly. Not special to me. This does not mean bad. They are perfectly usable.
I just didn’t like them.
Fantasy Chords- %100 Nylon. My Favorite. By far. So soft. Great on tension and whips/ slacks are great. They last for a long time too. They are of medium thickness and are perfectly wonderful. They feel like a soft warm kitty string.
One special note: During the week I played these strings I had an increased trick creation rate.
- Munchies (combo)
- Spin Cycle (combo)
- String Levitation (new)
- Slack Grind Bind
- GT Laceration (Brent Stole)
During the previous weeks I’d been using old worn poly. As soon as these strings arrived the creativity flowed through my brain. It could be from string withdrawal. However, I feel that good string accelerates trick progression. It certainly did for me.
Overall Thoughts: It’s top notch string made by a really nice guy. I’d buy OG Cat tails and Fantasy Chords by the hundreds (gotta burn through these Nylon Kitties first though). His other varieties are nice too. Corey offers a string for everyone. Crocostrings are good and will only get better.
