How long does yoyo string last you and what's your daily schedule?


#1

So recently, I’ve been yoyo-ing a lot more than I normally do. (Around 3-5 hours with breaks in between) I wake up at 10:00 AM, eat breakfast, then I play 30 minutes or so of Xbox. After that, it’s yoyos and a little kendama until I get bored and browse the net. Then I yoyo and kendama again and so on. At 7:30, I get on xbox again and play until 11:00. I noticed my string is fraying a lot more now. I have to change it in about 1-3 days. I’m using Kitty String (Nylon). So what string are you using, how long does it last, and what’s your daily yoyo schedule?

Edit I also should mention that I’m on vacation and that is why my schedule is so lazy.

I’m not allowed to have a daily schedule. My days are non-stop chaos.

How long do strings last? I’m using YYSL Type X and it seems to last forever! Even after I change them, they still have tons of life left in them.

I bought two 100-counts of YYSL Type X this year and a 100-count of Twisted Strings Trixtra. Plus I got like 600 of YYE 100% poly and 90+ YYE Type 10 Cotton for my wood axle yoyos, 70+ 100% cotten YYE bulk strings and over 180 YYE Slick 6 for my loopers…


#3

I use regular Polyester.

I change it twice-per day each yoyo.

I wear through it easy


#4

So much string!!! Omg! How much is an 100 count of type x? Ive always wanted to try it because people say it is awesome!


#5

it all depends sometimes i throw for 20 minutes somtimes i throw for two hours, and i use normal kitty n most, nylon kitty on my code1, and yysl type x only on my chief. the kitty usually last two or three days. the nylon two days, and yysl 4-6 days i find.

If I’m using the same yoyo the whole time, then I’ll have to change the string out after about 30 minutes to an hour depending on how hard I’m playing.


#7

I change my YYSL Type X every other day or so. Once it loses it’s bounce and starts fraying, I’m done with it.


#8

Regular yellow polyester lasts me around 75 throws before a change is needed


#9

YYSL Type X- 3 weeks
YYSL Ammo- 3 weeks
Standard Kitty- 3 days


#10

For me I play Type X and Ammo most and I can get a good 2 days play out of those. Other strings I change once twice sometimes even 3 times a day.


#11

Slick 6, Yellow.

Replace every day!


#12

Please tell me you phrased that wrong. A 100 count would have 100 strings. Or do you mean life in the strong?


#13

Sorry those were supposed to be 2 different questions/statements.


#14

I think that he meant how much does a 100 count of type x cost. If I misunderstood anything I apologize.


#15

The YYE string is inexpensive and works fine, no reason to not have plenty in stock. plus, since I go to yoyo meets, string could potentially go fast, especially when I have to re-string a lot of yoyos in a hurry.

I think 100-counts of YYSL and Twisted Strings is around $60/100-count. I recommend buying it at contests if you have the option. I know that’s how I get YYSL strings in bulk. For Twisted Strings, I have to go direct, but that’s OK.


#16

for me i used to use normal polly and each string would last me barely one practice session when i preping for contest (1hr and a half) or about one day of just casual play … now i use twisted string an one type a1 string will last me a week of practicing and casual playing ;D


#17

I use Kitty String and it lasts me a whole month. Purely because of laziness and I don’t want to change string. And most know how short-lived Kitty Strings get in one session.
I play between 5 minutes a day to 1 hour a day max. The only time I played for more than 1 hour is when I was on vacation and I played for 6 hours straight. Hurt my head so much.

DRAGON from Toxic Strings last me a few months. Usually wash it once or twice a month.
