I dunno, I figure this would make a decent discussion topic, I was just thinking. We have Polys, Cottons, 50/50 Cotton Poly Blend, Nylon, Nylon/Poly blend. But I think that is pretty much where it all ends. As we all know each material has different properties that they bring to the string. I don’t know what many of you homebrew string makers use/blend but here are a few ideas:
Nylotton - Nylon/Cotton Blends, For 2a players who want longer lasting string.
33.3 - Cotton/Nylon/Poly 33.3/33.3/33.3 Blend, For players who want their string to be able to do it all; Soft, Bouncy, Loop Maintaining, and Durable String.
Nylon - Why not? I’d be willing to try it at least.
I mean these are just some examples, I mean lets think unconventional here, 550 Cord (Para Cord for you Non-Marines) Threads are pretty thick but I they could work to some extent. What do you guys think? Is it possible to make some ridiculous new string types with unique qualities that would possibly be desired by the community?
P.S. - I already know G-Strings have many different types of string, however it is not clearly published anywhere what blends Paul uses (Prolly for good reason too! ;)), I wonder what we could come up with.
