Made my own strings!


#1

lols I’m just bored. This is probably a pointless post, but i just wanna tell everyone abt my homemadestrings!

Haha my first homemade string used a white thread (sewing thread, i think 100% cotton, couldn’t find any polyester), and since i didn’t know how to use the drill, i had to use the pencil method in Xela’s video. :frowning: And was short to the point of no return. It’s string tension was messed up as well, i winded it up way to little. It was thin and short, so i couldn’t bind and unwind my hitman right. (Yup i used my hitman. What? You can’t expect me to use my meteor, it might break!)

So, i did a second attempt, and the string tension was even worse. It was shorter, and thinner, so it was worse, and i threw it away, with my first string,

Yesterday, i found some blue thread and made some using a pencil and winding it up like the 2 previous ones. I spent a lot of time, i spent like 5 mins twirling it, and it was perfect. So, i made a spare.

Today, i finally learn’t how to use the drill by reading the instructions manual. Now, i made 3 strings, and i’m so happy :smiley: Now, i don’t have to worry about the need of buying strings tomorrow ;D haha i burnt through all my strings, and i didn’t have anymore, so this was my last resort. Oh well, i guess i’ll have to switch them pretty often, being 100% cotton :frowning:

Oh well. Now i’ll get back to making more ;D

If you want one that is very good for whips, is grippy, and is very durable, mix in some fishing line with it. About 25% fishing line. I made mine, and it has lasted a month already. It’s grippy, but I never do fast tricks, and got used to it.
