How Often Do You Change Your String


#1

just wondering ???

How long do u use your sting


(Q) #2

Usually it’ll get a bunch of tiny knots in it, then I’m like “oooh, time to change!”


#3

about every two weeks


#4

When ever I need to. Basically when tension is no good.


(JosephP) #5

20 Minutes.


#6

When my string starts to feel like it is getting thin, then I change it, so hopefully it won’t snap during a throw.
I hope this helps.


(J. Lev) #7

Once a week.


#8

I usually don’t have a set time. I used the same string for a good month or two straight on my Dv888. I tend to change the string when I can’t keep the tension for very long. After a few tricks, if the tension has changed drastically, I usually say its time to change.

All up to you.

Yah just like Mamonga I usually change it when the tension starts really jumping around easily. That and if its not sliding across my fingers well and slacks are poor.


#10

every couple of days


#11

Me too ;D


#12

On my 888 once every day or two, on my No-Jive about once a week… Those are my two main players.


(ed) #13

since i started the ‘cones to balls’ project with steve brown and j-def, i go a LLLOOONNNGG time. that type 10 cotton lasts forever. i usually change out when it’s gone from white to properly gray.

to give you some idea, i’ve used about 75 strings (give or take) since october, and i play a lot of different yo-yo’s.


#14

Every couple days I usually change the string.


(JayVee) #15

I usually change strings about once every 4-7 days, depending on how much yo-yo time I can squeeze into a day. And… I like to change the strings of ALL my yo-yos at the same time, when possible and needed. I don’t know, it’s a strange habit I developed when I started throwing…


(Johnny rocks!!!) #16

about once every day or so.


(Hardcore_Max) #17

usually every couple of days but sometimes its once a fortnight


(Yo!It'sMatt) #18

30 minutes.
With Sick string. never. haha


(Mark) #19

When it looks like it’s about to break, when it the tension control is ridiculous (which doesn’t happen to me often). It depends on what yoyo too. On my Speeder, a few days. On my Peak, 30 to 60 minutes on my E1NS, a few days.


#20

lately i’ve been going through 2-3 strings a day…when i had gator floss i never had to change it
