It just doesn’t hold up…
I’m gonna go a little off topic here…
I don’t know how people throw such dark color strings. If I ever pick up someone’s yoyo and they have a dark colored string on it, I very quickly become frustrated while playing with it. You can’t see dark strings! it’s infuriating. I have to use a white or a neon colored string.
But you know, if you’re looking for some strings that won’t break…
That happened to me on 2 dragons strings out of my 10 pack granted it was only 1 or 2 threads that broke but it just got me mad… grrrr
What string is that?
It’s okay, you can always replace it!
Maaan, the Hitman. I like!
It’s blue slick 8. I like the color better than the yellow slick 6. I also like that it holds up fairly well. that string was on there for a good long time, sort of a lab experiment. I got lucky after ignoring the initial snap, crackle, pop of the individual strands going.
The HM is one of my all time favorites. That one is dual sili’d, w/red YYJ spacers.
Jake Elliot has some durable stuff, you could try that.
Actually the slick 8 is pretty durable stuff. That string was way beyond its useful life.
(That was posted somewhat tongue in cheek…)
haha, I’ve done that before. I’ve never used slick 6, is it good?
I use slick 6 once in awhile. It plays fine as far as I’m concerned, but I like the slick 8 because it’s a bit thicker. The slick 6 seems to cut into my finger more.
I’m so sad they don’t make the Hitman anymore… I need a new one.
YYE has one in stock I believe…
Thanks! Unfortunately its yellow… I’ll probably shoot Andre an email when I get paid and pick up strings and see what can be done about that, :).
Really is a shame they don’t make those anymore, there was a significant period of time I played nothing but FHZ and Hitman, and I’m sure there are a lot of people around like that. Its a classic!
U need some Kevlar string
