How often do you replace your strings?


#1

I just watched the YoYoExpert video on replacing strings …

This got me wondering … how often do YOU have to replace your yo-yo strings?
Also, when do you know you need to replace the string?
What signs make you automatically want to put in a new one?
Is 50/50 better than 100% Polyester in terms of string life?

Depends on the string… The 50/50, or polly, bout daily… Cotton, like 10 minutes… I use Perfect fitstring, and one lasts me about a week…

about 3 times a day

every 2 days or so, depnds on the amount of play, harcore play = more string changes.

After half an hour of straight yoyoing, yeah, that string is gone. I need more. Will probably pick some up with the New Breed I’ll be ordering.


#15

When the string begins to suck, depends on how much i yoyo, some day’s i’ll yoyo a lot and some days i won’t.


#16

For me, Polyester 1 day, cotton 20 minutes, and 50% cotton 50% Polyester half a day.

Wow that’s a lot of string to go through …
I have a 100% Polyester (I don’t yo-yo that much every day… I’m just starting out) that I might change every week or so. It might be dangerous but … eh … replacing strings is just not appealing to me so much right now.
