I’m with Studio42 in that the Metz string is fabulous, but they are 60 cents a piece.
I also agree with NathanC that the Kitty’s are great for the money as well, especially their Nylons which are almost one fourth the price of the Metz.
I have gone through so many strings as of recent that I finally feel that I have found my “String of Choice” in the “Twisted Stringz” Project X. They are around 45 cents each, but they last longer than any other string I have used and I just simply love them. They whip really well & hold tension great once you break them in which only takes about fifteen minutes.
I still use the Kitty Nylons but they do not last as long as the project X so the price is almost a wash because I change them two to three times in the lifespan of one Project X.
And to be fair and honest, I still use the Toxic “Dragons” for serious whipping because there is nothing quite like them. Not a string I would use all the time, but for whipping they ROCK.
I would advise that you buy a 10 pack of all the above and see what you feel works for you.
But at the end of the day, I’ll take the Project X every time.
