Homemade String

just made my first two strings! i am VERY pleased with them there are a few flaws because when i was twisting it and took it off my drill i didn’t keep it taut the entire time but as i used it it smoothed out will DEFINITELY be making more lol

P.S will post pictures in a bit when i can

Nice! It is great to experiment with different materials and blend, torsion and thickness:)

I’ve not been happy with any of the poly string I’ve made, but, my cotton string is what I prefer for fixed and transaxle yoyos. If I ever decide to go into business, since I only make cotton strings, I’ll call the company Fixed Axle Return Top String abbreviated FA/RTS.

where do you get your Cotton material?

Amazon. This is what I’ve been using:
Aurifil A1050-2024 Mako Cotton Thread Solid 50WT 1422Yds White

Takes a few minutes of play to lock in the tension, but, the string lasts forever.
