How often do you change your string?


#1

The question is not how often you are supposed to change your string, it is how often do you yourself change the string on your yoyo. I change mine usually once a day.


#2

Every week.


#3

depends on the string. Highlites I change about every day. NOLY g-string I change about once a week to once every two weeks. General yo kevlar string, ive been using the same one for more than a month now


#4

every 2 to 3 days I got 300 string…


#5

Twice a week at most right now. But I’m restricted to practicing for 15 minutes a day, so strings are lasting a lot longer now. Using Slick6, got 100-count bulk a while ago. Upgraded from 100% cotton. At this rate, a string lasts me 10 days.


#6

whenever they get dirty looking. thats about the time they don’t feel as comfortable as they used to. so knowing how much i play, about 1 new string a day. maybe every 2 days.

It depends on how much you play with your yoyo(s)…

IN GENERAL: The more you play with your yoyo, the more you should replace your string. If you play with it all day non-stop you should probably replace your string once or twice almost everyday. If you just play with it for an hour or 2 each day, you probably only need to replace it 1 or 2 times every week.

There are some signs of when you should replace it:

  • Frayed.
  • Discolored (gross looking).
  • “Sticky.”
  • Cant keep perfect string tension anymore.
  • If you seem to keep getting string burns (this is more common when it is humid).
  • Of course if it snaps/breaks

If there’s humid weather conditions, it makes string “old” much faster, than when it’s dry, so keep that in mind too. Hope this helped.

Every 4 Days


#9

about every 2 days

uhh…once every 2 months or so. I don’t mind old string o.o


#11

I like to start each day with a new string because i yoyo for about 4 hours or more almost everyday.


#12

Easier to say it this way 2-3 times a year.


#13

I only yoyo about 10 minutes a day during summer, so once a month. I yoyo at least an hour a day during school, so every 2 weeks. I make my own string.


#14

I’m down to 2 strings and I’m not getting some until october!!!
I usually change mine once every 2 or three days though. After the string loses it’s bouncy feeling I don’t enjoy it as much.


#15

once every 2/3 days


(WildCat23) #16

When I change it. ;D

No really, I change it every 3-4 days.


#17

Jeez, you guys have string to waste don’t you guys <__>
I work mine until they snap.


#18

Yeah I know! It was surprising to me when yoyoers change once a day! I only get 5 strings a year. But that’s more than enough for me.


#19

Every 20 years lol just kidding about 2 times a day.


#20

until it snaps and that BEUATIFUL yoyo goes bouncing down the street:)
