This is a sympathy thread for players who suffer from extremely specific wants in a string. Can someone please come up with a medical term for this issue?
Seriously though, is anyone else really picky about string qualities? I only like rough, slick, long and whippy strings. That pretty much limits me to full length toxic dragons or full length toxic base. That’s not necessarily bad or anything, but anytime I go to try another person’s throw, half of what I’m thinking is: “Wow, I hate kitty string.” (I have nothing against kitty, it’s just pretty much a polar opposite of what I want.) My specific string wants have made playing other yoyos less enjoyable. Like the one time I got to play a palpitation, different string made it a little harder to just enjoy being able to play with a 200+ dollar throw. Or the time I met Jacob Gross and got to play a gsquared prototype, (I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say the name of the upcoming yoyo, so I won’t) the string made it a little harder to enjoy playing a yoyo that isn’t even out yet. Not to mention all of the other yoyos that have been a little harder to enjoy.
Does anyone else have this problem? What are your preferences for string?
