Dark magic 2 - strings


#1

Im thinking of getting a dark magic 2.

What strings do you recommend I get for it.


#2

100% polyester. do the same with everything that is not a looper.


#3

I haven’t mastered bind returns yet. Is this a problem with 100% poly.


#4

Nope any string will do. Bind or no bind. Many people do prefer poly though, me included.


#5

I’ve only ever used 100% cotton. How do they act differently.


#6

poly hurts less. it breaks less. it is SLIGHTLY less responsive, but to be honest, it makes no difference in the binding area.


#7

I’ve noticed you can get thick strings. How do these differ.


#8

thicker is generally more responsive.

that is what I use for my DM2 and love it.

I am starting a school club and plan to buy about 15 YYF spinstar. As they will beginners should I use 100% cotton, 50:50 or 100% poly.


#11

My preference is 50/50 cotton/poly (slick 8). The 8 strand tends to cut into my finger less than the 6 strand. The blend lasts longer than 100% cotton. Don’t care much for 100% poly myself.

The 8 strand strings will make binding easier when you are ready to learn binding. But they may snag when you go to learn whips and slack tricks, depends on the yoyo.
