Again, it’s not even necessary to go there. I have been using my nylon poly blend for well over a year and a half, and I can feel a night and day difference when performing slacks and whips. Again, I’m kind of spoiled to my own blend.
When I perform a simple Hidemasa hook for example. My recipe retains a tremendous amount of energy with the flick of my wrist, whereas let’s say a kitty fat I have to force the whip so much harder than I normally would with my own recipe.
The trade-off is that my strings feel a little coarser. I understand that that is not a desirable trait, but I personally don’t mind the texture of them because the performance that they offer is so incredibly worth it to me. They handle finesse and instruction very well, whereas let’s say a kitty fat seems to be a little bit more sassy.
But then again, people have been doing all kinds of crazy slacky whippy stuff with poly strings for longer than I’ve been throwing. All the power to them. I just can’t get into them
