So I have been noticing around the forums as well as my local meetup, that many players keep their string at its longest length. And it makes sense as you have more string real estate for tricks.
Now I started out doing the belly-button-high method, but soon went to a few extra inches. But nowhere near stock length. This morning out of curiosity I tried stock length on my YYSL Type X and I have to say it can be a bit unwieldy.
I think with time and practice I can get the hang of it, but why do you stick with stock length if you don’t mind me asking?
