Ooo nice candy-cane style. I do like these because they have a very distinct look. Even though they’re apparently crazy amounts of manual labor to make…

Thanks Mark :blush:

@codinghorror thanks, and yes, they are pretty labor intensive. I mean, compared to your standard straight forward string that is.

How do they feel?

They feel like… strings…

Stringy strings…

Stringy strings that feel… stringy

Like smooth or stiff?

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

They play just fine, they’re not really any different than normal strings

How much time does it actually take (roughly) to make one?

4 to 5 minutes a piece. As opposed to about eight regular strings in 10 minutes

Ooh I like that green/yellow one. I made a few of the candy cane style strings like that just because I wanted to try it out. Never made them again after that first time though. They came out good, but just seemed unnecessary.

Exactly.

Ain’t nothin’ necessary, my friends.

I think they’re just as easy to make, if not easier, because you don’t have to walk back and forth. These green/yellow surge blends use 4 different threads, 1 green nylon, 1 green poly, 1yellow nylon and 1 yellow poly.

Huh, I might be missing something in my process then - I have to walk back and forth even more for twists. Got any tips?

Ideally with the twists you’re only stringing each string half as far.

Same here. Literally twice as many times as a normal string.

Those would look stylin with a BL too!
