string


#1

ok guys i need help on which string i need to buy so if you could explain why you like that kind of string and/or give me a link to that string or tell me all the details so i can look for it thanks :wink:

Okay there are 3 materials and 4 types.

Materials:
100% Cotton - The most comfortable on your finger, and it doesnt burn as much as polyester when doing string tricks like boomerang or eli hops. But it breaks the most easily.
100% Polyester - The strongest one, it doesn’t break on you that easily, but it burns your finger when doing boomerangs or eli hops.
50/50 Cotton/Polyester(Slick) - mixture lol, I use them

Types
Type 6 - made up of 2 strands made up of 3 threads each. The thinnest, best for unresponsive play.
Type 8 - Made up of 2 strands of 4 each. This + Cotton = What your grandfather used.
Type 9 - 3x3 strands, its thicker than the rest.
Type 10 - Do they sell these anymore? They’re just 10x1 and they’re really thick and durable. Comes in the Vulto Saga yoyo if im not wrong. (My second yoyo)

What I use: Type 8 50/50, bcause i ordered 100 of them on accident rofl, i wanted type 6 50/50 but i have to burn all the ones i ordered before i can order them.

If you’re beginning, use type 8 100 cotton (Just buy 5 or so, so you can run out and buy the below) bcause they won’t burn your fingers, and arent too unresponsive.

If you’re getting pro, you can use type 6 slick or 100 poly, bcause the cottons will probably break if you have a strong throw.

Also, when you get more advanced, G-String is the way to go!

Try out any of these. I personally recommend Intetnus, or Regular. They are WONDERFUL strings, and they last longer then any other string I have tried (NOTE: I have not tried Angel Hair or Alchemy, nor do I want to. I highly recommend not getting those, from what I have heard from other people.)

Have Fun Throwing,

I thought it was expensive too, but i’m just going to get 50 of the cheap ones because they last longer than YYN highleters
