yysl plutonium are my faves… i was going through trials to see if there would be something else i liked… i’ve said it a bunch of times, lol… yysl plutonium are the fancy toilet paper of string man, soft as all get out.
i have chronic back and shoulder pain, and a bone spur in a disc that makes standing painful, a lot… there’s cats out here that have it a lot worse than i though. i switch a lot between responsive and unresponsive, and something like an ehknown, etc. (vs. anything unresponsive) that is overall lighter, larger in diameter and the center of mass distributed more, can be more forgiving on the old joints and bones, while still getting some good play out of it.
for those dry winters, like in the northeast from where i originated, when your hands get all dry and cracked. at night, get a nice clean pair of cotton socks, slather your hands in vaseline, and put the socks on your hands and go to bed. after a night or to they should be all good.
