Those charts are about as useful as writing a 136 page book on the, ‘Most effective methods of twisting a stem off an Apple’.
Nothing like turning, ‘Peeling a banana’ into a Science project.
…When to change a string is as simple as watching spit hit the ground. <function/result.
Amazing to me how much some people are willing to spend on yoyos or ‘a’ Yoyo and yet seem to get financial cramps when it comes to Yoyo string.
String is not expensive. Yes I know some of the designer strings cost 7 to 10 bucks for maybe 10 strings.
But even if that is what you use it is still cheap.
If a string cost a dollar and you used it for 3 days; it only cost you 33 cents a day. <cheap…
A guys says, ‘I have to make this string last all month’. And every day he drinks Monster drinks and eats candy bars, lol.
Guys buy: iPods and iPhones and skateboards and backpacks and expensive tennis shoes and Beats headsets and Red Bull and Xbox and Playstation games and you name it…
But when it comes to string? I haven’t changed my string in 4 months. I wash my string and use it again. I spend hours making my own string so I don’t have to buy it. <you bought the supplies and you spent the time to make it<<<<You bought it Clown, hahaha.
When to change strings? Simple. As soon as the string starts looking funny; change it. As soon as the string starts playing funny; change it. As soon as the string has absolutely ‘no bounce’ left(dead strings play funny); change it. If you mainly throw just 1 Yoyo it is obviously much easier to know how much time you have on a string. If you have several hours use on a string; change it. If you have an aggressive response or a rough surface on the halves around the response that wears the string at the loop; change it…Before it breaks.
I really like the, ‘I run a lighter up and down the string to burn the fuzz off the string and make it new again’ hahaha that is a Winner there.
What is more expensive than Yoyo string? Time is. And all the time you guys spend trying to ‘not change strings’ costs you time. You are paying for your cheapness with moments of your life.
I buy Kitty strings. Usually 400 at a time. Chump change when you realize how little each string costs.
If you have a main carry/use Yoyo and you change out the string every single day; you are not changing it too often.
If I am rotating 4 or 5 yoyos, I only keep a string on the one I am throwing. If I decide to switch to another Yoyo, I simply change the string over to the next Yoyo I play. That way you can keep track of exactly how much use you are putting on a string. And as soon as it starts playing ‘funny’ you change it.
Throwing a Yoyo with old string is like playing frisbee with a dead puppy.
Use a Fresh string every day.
It’s absolutely the least expensive ‘Mod’ anyone can do to their Yoyo.
Trust me. I know a few things about Modding yoyos.
